Taking Better Pictures

The overall quality and composition of your photographs is a critical factor to my success in selling your machines at top dollar.  Please take the time and care necessary to increase those odds.

 

  • Your “main” photo should include the entire machine, see below for examples.

  • Use a high quality camera and use a tripod if available.

  • Take large format photos (and do not crop them), always send the originals.

  • Always take photos prior to disassembly.

  • Don’t hide flaws, they are common (small rips in upholstery, scratches on the frame, etc...).

  • Take multiple photos from different angles (include close ups of upholstery, weight stacks, hand grips, etc.....

  • To the best of your ability, try to isolate each machine and minimize background objects.

  • Use as much light as necessary.  Natural light is best if you have that option.

  • Never send “stock photos” and say that your unit is just like this one.  I can not post these.

  • Clean machines prior to taking photos, especially if they have been in storage.
