Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.
A. Portraits and Weddings, for sure. I'd love to branch out and do more fashion and editorial work. I wouldn't mind doing a photojournalism project from time to time, either.
Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A. There are many photographer's to choose from. Many have different styles and offer different options for the client to choose from. Client's looking to hire a photographer should do their homework and look carefully at all the options the photographer has to offer. The client hires a photographer based on their style and ability to take the best photograph. Choose a photographer that works for you!
Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?
A. A professional photographer can be an expense. What many clients do not realize is the photographic session or event is an investment for the client, that will last a lifetime. Do not be put off by the fee's involved when hiring a professional photographer. There are many hours and steps involved after the session or event is over that the client does not see. Just remember, it is a lifetime investment when documenting your special day. A great photographer will not disappoint you!
Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?
A. A client should not be afraid to ask any questions or express their concerns. A good and professional photographer will be available and able to answer any questions the client might have. A professional has a great website that is easy to use and answers most of the clients questions about pricing and package details easily. There are not a specific set of questions that all clients ask. Make sure that all of your questions and concerns are addressed when talking to the photographer, and everything should run smoothly.
Q. What important information should buyers have thought through before seeking you out?
A. All clients have a budget that they are working within. Pick a photographer that offers what you need and are looking for, but don't be afraid to spend a little more, if you are able, to get the best photos for your investment. Remember, great photographer's are not cheap and they surely will not disappoint you with their work and time involved with your job.
