A professionally photographed board game can make a huge difference to how people view your game.
The right photo will help your game stand out, increase the likelihood people will share it on social media, and reassure potential customers in the quality you deliver.
Professional photographs are great for your website, online store, crowdfunding campaigns, adverts, printed media such as magazines and leaflets, and at shows. Distributors and retailers will also be happy to receive great photos as they help them sell your game.
Keep in mind there are different types of photos, I typically consider:
- Product – Clean shots of the game box and/or game components.
- Lifestyle – Photographs of the game in play, perhaps with people in the shots.
- Creative – Highlighting key components using external elements to create a scene.
I like to use product shots for my store and lifestyle and creative shots for marketing.
The following list contains photographers I have either worked with or heard great things about, I’d recommend browsing their work and seeing which is right for you.
