Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A. Email or call the photographer to speak with them one-on-one about what services they offer and how much for everything, including editing and a CD or flash drive. This will help avoid any surprises when it comes time to exchange photos for payment.
Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?
A. Photographers spend much more time editing your images than you would think...I mean it's fun, but it takes some serious time.
Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?
A. Ask about specific elements of your shoot:
-Pricing per shoot/day/hour
-How you would like your images delivered to you (on CD, website, flash drive, etc.)
-Length of shooting time
-Outfit changes, etc.
Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?
A. I try to look at events and people in a way that others don't. Focusing completely on your subject and giving them your full attention allows the photo to be something bigger than that moment in time.
Q. What do you like most about your job?
A. Working with such a variety of people is definitely the best part of photography. Different subjects bring different characteristics and flair to each photograph, it keeps the job interesting always working with someone new.
