With the dominance of major e-commerce platforms such as Amazon, Flipkart and the ease at which brands can go online with their own website and start selling online there is serious competition for brick & mortar stores in terms of scalability os sales by reaching out to a larger base of potential customers.
The biggest challenge that is seen in this route of building a Brand / Sales through the online route is the "Cost". Many expect e-commerce to work magic but the truth of the matter is "E-commerce does have its costs which match up to/be higher than the cost of a physical store". while the previous statement is true what one needs to realise that at the same price it also allows one to reach out to a larger client base which in turn can be converted to a higher sales volume & better margins.
With the spread of COVID-19 and the subsequent lockdowns across the globe virtual meetings and gatherings have become the new norm, resulting in a huge surge in demand for webcams and prices several times the MRP/MSRP. With the lockdown also brought much of our photography business to a standstill, the biggest pinch we felt was the lack of a webcam (i do remember having a decades-old, low-resolution webcam somewhere with the broken mount - hence the "somewhere bit")
We did manage a while with workarounds using 3rd party software and a screen-capture of onscreen live-view video from my cameras(DSLRs)

Organising and executing your own studio session is affordable !!
It is one of the best ways to take your photographic skills to the next level.
The primary advantage of shooting in a studio is the ability to control and shape the quality of light. Shooting under studio lighting also allows even low end / cropped sensor cameras to render sharp, well-detailed images. All of this control and quality means having access to a sufficiently large space and all the equipment that goes with it, usually a fairly hefty price to own & maintain. Thereby making renting a studio space is a great way to gain experience without the financial pain of buying your own equipment.
Chances are that you are a budding photographer, business owner or a marketer trying to get an idea what to expect in a photo studio for your upcoming shoot. Typically a photographer would arrange this for you, but most often they offer you their own studio, even if sometimes their studio might not the right fit for the scope of the project.
Some planning and a well-equipped studio can greatly simplify your logistics and can mitigate most hiccups related to your project. As not all studios are created equal as the available ones vary from makeshift spaces to custom purpose-built spaces & everything in between. Some studios may also be better suited for a particular genre/style of photography than others hence the importance to select the right studio for your needs.

Just like your job interview where the first impression you give a recruiter matters the most, your profile picture on LinkedIn is what catches the eye of a prospective employer. Your professional profile photo is an integral part of your LinkedIn or any other Job site profile and, along with your employment history and credentials markets you as a strong prospective employee for employers.
Why does having a professional photo on LinkedIn matter so much?
- Prospective Employers do judge you for your professionalism & commitment by your appearance.
- It's a natural instinct and a subconscious connection is made when one sees your profile photograph (profiles without a picture do tend to get ignored).
- It is an integral part of your professional history and a prospective employer would be imagining how his/her brand / organization will be represented.
- It also keeps focus on what you have to offer professionally.
