Question: We want to make a banner for an upcoming boat show and are in need of some professional-quality boat photos. Do you know where we can get some?
Answer: The ideal scenario would be to have a professional photographer take photos of your company’s work, but that’s not always practical. While trade associations, such as the Industrial Fabrics Association International and the Marine Fabricators Association, often receive photos from their members, the photos are intended for the general promotion of the industry and not for the marketing of a specific company. Your best bet is to go to a business that offers stock photography services where photos can be ordered online and delivered electronically.
