New look website needs new photos for your business
The Enjoy Staffordshire website is about to get a make-over and will become much more image focused, which means that your business listing will need to have bigger and better, higher resolution photos to make it work.
We urgently need you to supply new landscape orientated photos that are at least 1,300 pixels wide to use on your business listing by the end of March at the latest!
Email or "wetransfer" your hi-resolution images to firstname.lastname@example.org

Daniel works extensively with travel and adventure media, and provides photography for tourist boards, travel companies, activity providers, hotels and hospitality companies around the world.
