BMW on sale on Craigslist

Photo from

We’ve all seen the varying quality of photos on auction sites such as eBay. Listings with a selection of well shot photos are much more likely to sell than those without.

This article on shows how well taken photos add tremendous value to a car that could have otherwise looked pretty average.

These photos stand out because they are shot in a different way to standard second hand car photos. That immediately makes them different and interesting. The photos were also shot in some lovely golden light which just makes the car look more desirable.

Fundamentally, the photographer has thought a bit about what they are doing which made a huge difference to the end result.

More proof of the importance of good photos when trying to sell products online!
