Your general stock image still does have a place in modern design, but for most of the websites we design the stock image has been placed towards the back of the album in favour of high quality professional photography distinctive to the site and its purpose.

Having bespoke photography takes the design on a step further than just picking standard stock imagery and makes the experience on your site unique as no one else will have those pictures on their site.

Professional photography has been a key element to some of our latest launches with The Tollemarche Arms, KGGS and the Skegness RNLI all benefiting from this and giving a personal effect to the visitor, just imagine these sites with a generic Pub, School and Sailing images instead.
