What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
With the recent explosion of the digital camera market, and even smart phones that take amazing photos, why you go pro?
You have realized a smart camera does not make a smart photographer. Just because a friend, co-worker, or relative may have a high-speed, high-quality digital camera, does not mean he/she is an amazing photographer. While good "over-the-counter" equipment does help the average consumer up their game, a professional photographer brings an artistic vision, approach, creative eye and camera knowledge that can't be bought at the electronic store!
High powered lights...not the flash on the camera, lenses, camera expertise and posing experience all contribute to a final image!!
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
1. What kind of images do I want?
2. What is my style?
3. What personality type is important for me when working with a photographer?
Seriously! You have to be comfortable with this person!
