Young, talented, ambitious, Freyja Brynjarrson’s a photographer struggling to crash the art establishment, the challenges presented by her family, and keep true to her uncompromising ethic.

Fate places her on the front line of a political demonstration where soldiers open fire on civilians. She photographs death for the first time and the intensity makes everything she’s done previously in art and life seem inconsequential.

The current government is concerned these highly charged images could sway the voters against them. With a closely contested election only three days away, they’re doing whatever they can to attempt to suppress their publication. But someone far more unscrupulous than government spin-doctors also wants these images destroyed.

Gunnar Brynjarrson, Freyja’s eldest brother is the head of an illegal narcotics empire. He’s concerned about the opposition party’s platform to decriminalize drugs. His sister’s photographs could influence the outcome of a close election and put his business in jeopardy.

As events unfold, Freyja slowly becomes aware of the far-reaching impact the billions of narco dollars have on the government, the economy, friends, family and even herself. Something insidious has infected society and like a superbug, it’s resilient, opportunistic and appears as a mutation in the most unexpected places.

Freyja refuses to compromise and is intolerant and unforgiving of those who succumb to this evil or are complicit in their acceptance of it. If she stays at home, she’s afraid she’ll be infected and never attain success on her own terms. She takes an assignment with an international agency photographing the chaos and casualties of Mexico’s drug war. Freyja soon discovers she’s shot only one frame of ‘the big picture’.

The Big Picture focuses on dramatic action, zooms in on political intrigue, and takes a candid snapshot of modern romance. The plot also reveals how narco dollars, overtly and covertly, influence every level of our lives; the wars we fight, the governments we elect, the impact on healthcare, and most importantly and tragically, our personal relationships.

 

"The plot of The Big Picture, with its twists and reversals of fortune, ...is imaginative and fast moving...extremely compelling. ....characters are diverse, well developed, and real... ...imagery is powerful and fresh. The book is an excellent read and pausing to experience some of the imagery makes it even better."

 

"The Big Picture is ...a thought-provoking novel that is smartly written with genuine emotional, no holds barred dialogue, and events that will punch you in the heart. - This book was a gem to read and an interesting one at that."

"...a journey of self discovery... a coming-of-age, social thriller... focused on key ethical questions... a creative solution to expose the links of social problems."
Tom Pope - for Bookpleasures

"I like the plot and the plotters...Arni's sense of humor and the dynamics in the Brynjarsson family...Gunnar the druglord, BB the addict, Arni the hedonist, Giordana who rationalizes and Freyja who wants to fight. I like the love story, too. Freyja and Marty with their differences and similarities make a good couple.
... (there are) moral issues in The Big Picture. The drugs, corruption, the way people with beliefs and principles slowly drop them in the treadmill of politics and re-elections. What drug money does to each of the Brynjarssons. Freyja's ethics against Gunnar's power."
- C. Widmann, Goodreads Review

 

Imaginative and fast moving...extremely compelling...will punch you in the heart.

FBA Product Photography: How To Make Your Main Listing Image Stand Out

Universally, it goes without saying that a face is the most crucial factor for an immediate first impression. Unarguably, in the Amazon marketplace, that first impression of a product is all a buyer needs to make a split decision about it. The conversion rates of your amazon listings are heavily dependent on your Amazon product photography and brand image, but most of all, the face of your Main Image.

 

 

The game is now more challenging than ever. More than 50% of Amazon sales are contributed by third-party sellers, making a massive number of over 2.5 million sellers. One better and more competitive than the next. So how is one supposed to stand out in the crowd after all?

 

 

As an invested seller, you need to look beyond the front lines. Think bigger and picture what represents my product and exactly where? The main image will be one, but its impact can be observed in various places such as the main product page, amazon search results, external search engines, thumbnails, etc. Therefore, your target must be equally diversified. No matter where it shall appear, it has to look fantastic.  

 

 

Let us divulge into the bag of tricks we have for producing unique and outstanding main images, so you could lock down maximum buyer attention and ultimately convert sales.

 

 

 

Use High-quality Camera

 

 

The first thing you need to do to make your main image stand out is to make sure you’re using a high-quality camera. A sharp-looking image is the first step in gaining customer trust. It delivers the message of confidence and will move the potential buyer to subconsciously create a connection between product quality and high-quality image display.

 



A high-quality image works like an open book that will allow customers to observe every nook and crevice of the product to their satisfaction. Besides looking superb on the main product page, it will also appear more attractive in the search results page, making your listing stand out from the crowd. 

 

 

Maximize Visibility

 

 

The second thing you can do is make use of professional editing services. Ensure your image is cropped with such finesse that your audience is convinced of a naturally white background, leave no room for doubt. Poor cropping skills produce an extremely undesirable effect on the customer, leaving them with the impression your service is of low quality. 

 

 

What you have to do next is eliminate any extra blank space within the frame to give maximum product coverage. This will make your product appear more bold and prominent on the main image. Amazon itself recommends covering 85% of the main image with product photography. We recommend you push it as high as the frame allows without overcompensating visibility, of course. The buyers are more likely to choose your product by simply being prompted to look at the bolder image among other competitors. This way, your chances increase significantly in getting more clicks than them. 

 

 

Shoot With A Unique Angle

 

 

Differentiation by a unique angle is a bold and creative idea. Shooting your product from a creative angle can help you grab the buyers’ attention and increase your click-through rate. After all, standing out from the crowd is your target here. Why not do something fun to help it? Although keep in mind that this shoot should still comply with the Amazon guidelines and display your product’s face as clear as possible. 

 

 

Run A Split Test

 

 

The last thing you cannot afford to miss out on optimizing your main image is to Split Test your shortlisted choices. No matter how good looking the main image you think is, you can’t know if it's the right choice until you split test them. You may use testing tools such as Pikfoo to split test the main image. This way, you can attain results instantly, or you can use 30 days for the first image and 30 days on the next image live on amazon. This should provide you with accurate results to help you check which image is performing better.

 

 

 

An Important Note:

 

 

Keeping the Amazon guidelines in mind, we understand that there might not be much you can do for your main image since Amazon does not allow extra visuals other than the product itself. Many sellers make the mistake of including icons, badges, text, or props in their images to make it stand out, but we advise against it. Amazon can suppress such listings during randomized checkups anytime. It seems rightfully tricky to make your main image stand out when the only thing allowed is just a bland photograph of your product devoid of external help.

 

 

 

Final Thoughts

 

 

It cannot be stressed enough that your main image is everything. Hopefully, now that you have a few tricks up your sleeve, you will find it easier to make your Amazon Listing stand out. And remember not to shy away from asking for professional help if you need it—we expertise in Product Photography For Amazon and professional editing services.
