Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A. The biggest piece of advice I can give you about a photographer is NOT to base your decision off of price. Photography nowadays is saturated with amateurs, basically anyone can pick up a camera and call themselves a professional photographer. Typically if they charge $25 for everything including all print releases, you are dealing with someone who is very inexperienced. As a consumer you have to decide if quality or price is what you desire. Experience and references are a great asset for any photographer! Ask lots of questions, and do lots of research to find what kinds of photos and poses you like. Show examples to the photographer you want to hire.
When looking for a photographer that does quality work, make sure you check their portfolio and their reviews. Those two things can tell you a lot about the type of work you will receive from them. You will want a photographer that is educated, knows you and your family's style and preferences, and will be able to service you forever!
This person is going to most likely be there for every important family event and milestone you go through, from birth of your children to their graduations. You want to make sure it's someone you're comfortable with, You want them to have a high standard in the quality of work they give you and you will see this in their portfolio.
Q. What important information should buyers have thought through before seeking you out?
A. For my wedding clients I suggest that they thought about what type of photography they are looking for in their wedding images...photo-journalistic and candid moments or more traditional posed portraiture for example. I love to see examples of what you like, this helps me make sure I can create the perfect art for you! Tell me your ideas, what you love, how you two met!
You would want to think about the kind of budget you have and what things you might want to add to your package. For example are you interested in a flush mount album with all your wedding images or would you prefer digital files to print as you see fit? Just remember professional photographers have access to products and albums that consumers cannot buy and therefore the quality of a professional's products are much higher than you would find when shopping on your own...this is your wedding day, it only happens once! You want to make sure that what you order to remember the day will stand the test of time as often these are the first heirlooms you pass down to future generations.
Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?
A. I am an experienced photographer with personal training from three local big name photographers here in Wichita and Derby and I have formal education in portrait and wedding photography. I do not just shoot and burn disks, I take time to edit all my photo's with care, so you have the best images. I have completed my BS Degree's in Graphic Design and BFA in Photography. Rest assured you will be hiring a knowledgeable and professional photographer in the industry.
I take my time with my clients to insure the best images possible and set up lighting and equipment (even outdoors!!) to make sure the light is beautiful that falls on you. Perfectly exposed images, technically sound photographs, and unique custom designed products help me to stand apart from others in my field. Unlike other companies that use bland templates to create your products I custom design works of art to remember your important day!
Q. What do you like most about your job?
A. Meeting new people and creating beautiful images that they love!
Q. What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A. professional photography is VERY different from the standard chain studio's that many customers are used to or friends snapping pictures with a camera. With professional photography it's not about price but value and quality. Professional photography is highly valuable and personal. People value their memories and that's what we do; Capture the Moment for you to remember forever. From when your walking down the aisle to when we capture that first kiss, you will have tears coming to your eyes because we capture your likeness in a simple portrait.
Q. What do you wish customers knew about you or your profession?
A. Thumbtack charges a significant fee to send a quote, and it would be wonderful to please respond back and let us know whether you are interested or not. Professional photographer's have a cost of doing business just like any other professional service. Professional photography is not cheap, and if you are getting cheap quotes you may not be getting truly professional service. Beware of amateur photographers (fauxtographers) flooding the market. Make sure your photographer is competent and knowledgeable in their field. I cannot stress enough, you do get what you pay for!!
Q. Tell us about a recent job you did that you are particularly proud of.
A. Recently I took some photo's for The Forum Theatre in Wichita, KS on two different occasions and both were featured in The Wichita Eagle, the 2nd time featured on the front page! The also worked with The Tallgrass Film Festival where I spent a week going to all the gala's and movie openings, I got to meet a ton of actors and directors and it was just awesome!
This month I will be photographing the ColorVibe 5K run here in Wichita, Ks as well as photographing the STOMP! Out Epilepsy and SUDEP Awareness Walk later in September here in Wichita.
