What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
First - check our the website or portfolio the provider offers - make sure you like their style.
Second - talk to the photographer who you will be working with - can they communicate, do they listen, can you feel comfortable with them
Third - confirm their industry participation in organizations and groups - what are they currently studying, do they present their knowledge to others.
Last - trust our instincts - if it doesn't feel right go to someone else - the cheapest person may not be able to provide the image you want and need.
