Cost of a Professional Photographer 

While it is true that you do pay for the services of a professional photographer, and the overall process from photo shoots to editing and so forth can be expensive in some cases, you really are making a vital investment into your brand. You might even think of the costs associated with a professional photographer to being something of a capital investment into the overall value of your business. 

The reality is that if you are successful in developing a brand, that in and of itself is intellectual property that can have significant value.
