Member Spotlight: POW Photography
US internet sales were estimated to be $304.1 billion for 2014 and businesses that sell online often need simple photos of their products on a white background. Traditionally, businesses had to take their own pictures or pay a photographer. Photographers Jeff Delacruz and Paul Zimmerman recognized the demand and saw an opportunity to make it faster, easier, and more cost effective using technology. Products on White Photography was born. POW has worked with over 500 different businesses and delivered over 15,000 images.
