Most companies won't allow you to take your own photos because they want to retain control of their image and branding. However, many are good about allowing you to use the images they use. Have you asked the suppliers if they will supply photos? They may want you to sign an agreement that they get some say in how these images are used, but they are usually accommodating.
I can recommend two web design companies - YNG Web Solutions and Minnow Web Design.
I hope this helps.
Thanks for your help.
Doug - great answer! Work with your suppliers - they should be willing to work with you - if not, find better suppliers.
Also - the manaufacturers may have creatives that you can also use - not just your vendors.

Regarding the promotion of your website. There are many ways to accomplish this - you can do it yourself (cheapest way) or purchase software that can automate your efforts - with a little input from you or completely outsource it.
When we got started, we found some very good information at http://www.onblur.net Might be worth a look.
I suggest that you also start to learn about the many different ways to promote your business. Thus, even if you outsource, you can be sure that the company you chose is doing the right things and not blowing smoke.

My partner and I are starting a business selling appliance parts. Where would we be able to get photos of items we'll carry to put on our web page? The suppliers we'll be buying from won't let us take pictures of their inventory. Other web sites that sell appliance parts have pictures so there must be a way to do it. Also we want to hire a company to promote our website. Can anyone recommend specific companies or where we can find them? Thanks.
