How to Hire a Photographer in China?


If you’re securing products from China, you’ll likely receive product photos with your order. Regrettably, these photos are not good enough for your customers (keep reading for an example). So, you might be wondering: Why don’t I just hire a photographer in China? Well, not everything is that simple.

The language barrier

Even if you found the experience OK with your supplier, conveying creative intent is a lot harder than settling a business transaction. It’s already a tough process in English, so imagine having to work through language barriers too!

Missed photo trends

Pinterest, Instagram, and Google are great sources of inspiration… unless your photographer’s in China. With no exposure to these sites and social trends, you’ll have trouble capturing the photo aesthetic popular among your customers.

Communication woes

We all know that chat services such as WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger are banned. But even if you use WeChat, you may find photographers taking a long time to reply simply due to the translation hassle.

Photo delivery trouble

It’s less commonly known, but file-hosting services such as Google Drive and Dropbox are also blocked in China. Professional photos are too large to be sent through email, so you’ll need to waste time finding a sharing service that works.

It’s seldom a company

There are plenty of Chinese photographers promoting their company’s services, but these usually turn out to be freelancers without a studio or professional equipment, much less the handling expertise needed for certain products.

Now, this is what a supplier-provided photo looks like:

Compare it with this photo:

It’s obvious which is better. But what if we told you a Chinese photographer took it?
