It seems like you really want the design to be for you, rather than your user. Keep in mind that ultimately it's the user that will be using your website most of the time.
The reason that images are placed on the left is that because people read from left to right. There is also research that shows a similar pattern that users browse web pages (refer https://www.nngroup.com/articles/f-shaped-pattern-reading-web-content/) Most important thing about the product will needs to be seen 1st.
However if you are from a region like the middle east, where people read from right to left, the opposite of this will be true.
Besides product pages with left positioned image, I've come across quite a few websites that have product pages with the image in the center. This is probably with the idea that users look at what's right in front of them (in the center of the screen) 1st before starting to scan the web page.
