What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have an Associates Degree in Visual Communications-Multimedia and completed several photography courses for that degree. I am currently getting my second Associates Degree in Photography and will hopefully make this my full time career in the next few years. I also constantly try new techniques and watch video tutorials online.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I love photography and it has slowly "developed" (ha!) into a great career. I wanted to offer people the same criteria that I wanted in a photographer.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
First, find the right photographer for your needs.
Second, choose the photographer that you like and the one that fits your budget.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
For every hour I shoot I usually put in a least another hour for editing. If my hourly rate seems high, just remember it's more like 2 hours.
