With higher mega pixels and a professional that understands how to make use of light your images are bound to come out in a higher quality than using any old digital camera yourself.

They have the understanding and experience

Most importantly, a professional photographer has the training and experience to carry out the job. Experience is invaluable in photographer, and chances are your professional photographer has photographed products similar to yours already. Have a chat with them and ask to see their portfolio of work to gain some ideas. Ask as many questions as possible, the more you discuss your objectives, the closer your end results will meet these.
