Should I Use a Professional Photographer?
Thursday, August 22, 2013 • 12:32pm
Almost everyone has a personal camera on hand. Cell phones now have a 4-8 megapixel camera built in. So my question is this, are these cameras we carry able to capture those moments we are not willing to leave to chance? You know, those images we will treasure the rest of our lives that will be passed down to our children and then their children?
The digital revolution has brought amazing options. The hobbyist, professional and the amateur all benefit from a sea of ever growing choices. However, these options do not always translate to a image worthy of being printed and hung for many years to come. It takes a tremendous amount of skillful talent and effort to create a truly unique portrait worthy of hanging in your home or office. Custom photography is all about choice and experience, and finding someone who will photograph your special moment and devote the personalized attention necessary, without the feeling of a crowded, “take a number” portrait studio.
Here are just a few of the complex components that go into capturing that moment in time. Foremost, a properly trained professional photographer with a passion for his trade, proper lighting equipment, a planned out composition and feel for the image, many backdrop options for diversity, hi-tech computers and programs with professional editing features to ensure you always look your best.
In order to provide this high level of service a photographer must be able to spend the appropriate amount of time and skill in to making a portrait session amazing. This requires the right mix of camera, lens, lights, and the understanding of what the final product will be whether ￼it be a metal print, canvas, mural or product of your choosing correctly translates from camera to print.
A good starting point when choosing a photographer is whether or not they belong to a reputable professional organization that promotes continuing education, training, and up to date certifications. Although this is no guarantee of a great experience it is a good starting point to find out how serious someone is about their passion and profession. Ask as many questions as possible, as this will not only reassure you of your concerns, it will also give the photographer an understanding of the goals you see for your project.
Lastly, as there are many freelancers out there, I believe there is added value and security with choosing a photographer that works either for a studio or has their own. This not only brings the added reassurance that you have a safe public environment to meet with your photographer, but it also means that they are growing their business and clientele.
