Website Ideas: Take Your Own Photos!

Everyone is a photographer!

What’s that in your pocket? Is it your cell phone? Nowadays, you are a walking photographer. So be sure to take out your cell phone daily and capture quick shots, selfies and photos that track progress. 

For example, if you work on projects that take a long time to complete – like on a construction site – snap a photo every day to see the progress. You’ll be able to throw together a kick-ass portfolio or case study page later and be glad you made the effort! 

I’ve even seen a trend with car dealerships getting on the photo bandwagon by sharing daily pics of staff on their Instagram feeds. This makes the company seem friendly and approachable. 

It’s also a great opportunity to share milestones and accomplishments, big dates or celebrations. The more candid, the more real, the better. 

Calgary is a beautiful city!

Especially in Calgary, there’s no lack of gorgeous shots. I often just take photos and then stash them away for later in a folder called “Calgary photos”. 

Like this one I took on my first trip on the South West line of the Ctrain:

And this one to took while I was power walking down the river path:

You’ll never know what you’ll find when you venture down a path you’ve never taken before…

Oh – wait a second – how did this adorable toddler butt get in here! (Yes, he’s actually mine!)

And my point is...

There’s photo opportunities everywhere. And all of us own expensive cameras that we carry around everywhere. 

Not that professional photo shoots don’t have their time and place. 

But there’s really no excuse not to take and post lots of photos and use them on your website whenever possible. 

Happy shooting everyone!
