We are revamping the product catalog and we want to feature YOU! Pick your favorite products and take lifestyle images featuring the product! Lifestyle photography captures people in situations, real-life events, and more. Show us Xtra® being poured into a glass as you chat with a family member. Have a quick photoshoot as you make your Ultra Protein™ shake in the morning. Take a photo of your morning routine with our L’initié® line. Be creative and have fun!
Good photos will follow our recommendations and guidelines below as well as feature the product in a real-life situation. A selfie with your favorite product is not a lifestyle photo. Below are examples of some good lifestyle images. All photos are submissions that we have already received from our amazing and creative Associates! Featuring photos from Heather Corrales, Chris Long, Jordan Monroe, Teresa Molina, and Brian Boyanovsky. Anyone can take amazing photos!
Photography Tips & Tricks:
- Know your light, ensure the subject of the photo is well lit and easily seen. Natural light is best!
- Capture candid photos. Candid photos are a great way to capture moments that would otherwise be missed!
- Keep your hand steady to avoid blur in the photo. Use a tripod or stand if you need to.
- Focus your shot! If you’re using a smartphone, tap the screen to focus the camera on your subject. That’ll help focus the photo and it will help optimize the lighting.
- Have fun! It’s clear when you see a photo that someone is enjoying themselves or not.
- Need more tips? There are a plethora of resources available online!
