Tips On Choosing The Right Photographer

Photographs are definitely one of the best inventions that man has ever made. This is because, through photos, we can immortalize a lot of great memories that we can later get back to if we want to take a look at all the great things that have happened in our lives.

Because of the rise of DSLRs and point and shoot cameras, more and more people are getting into the photography business. This means that if you’re going to look for a photographer, you’re going to have to browse through quite a long list of options.

When you choose to hire a photographer, the very first thing you need to take into consideration would be the kind of photos you need to have taken. For example, if you want to get pictures of your newborn baby taken, then you need to hire a newborn photographer who will do that for you. This is a good thing to do since the best photographers tend to specialize on one thing.

You also need to take a good look at the portfolio of the photographer you’re planning on getting.  Doing this will allow you to get a good idea about the kind of work that he does as well as the quality of the photos he delivers.

How to start a photography business

7 Things you need to know before Starting a Photography Business

  1. Patience is a virtue

You have to understand that the person on the other side has no idea about photography poses, so you must guide him or her. Let them know that it is important to pay attention to what you are saying…and stay cool!! especially with kids.

2. Be Organized

Baggage, diary, spread sheets, google calendar, zoho invoicing maybe? Whatever makes you save time…use it.

3.  You must hire an accountant.

Photography is a very demanding job…running all around town, long hours especially when you got weddings. Then you have to edit the photos and publish them…what about work life balance?? So go get a life and hire an accountant…he will save you tax legally as well!

4. Do not be your competitor’s slave

Do not compete on pricing…set your own price, a fair price and make sure your customers understand the value you are giving them. Compete on quality rather then price, be different.

5. Contacts

Do a lot of outreach, go out of your house, reach out to wedding vendors for example…wedding planners perhaps? If you do a great job they will be happy to promote you and recommend you to their clients

 

6. Stay focused

I’d rather focus on one thing and be the best at it rather than do a million things at once and do low quality work. Specialize in one area of business that you deem is going to make you a great return.

7. Passion

Without passion, you will not succeed. Never give up. But most importantly, be passionate for what you do, the people around you will notice that. And when you love doing something you will not quit during difficult times…because you are doing something that you love and believe in…follow you instincts, hear what others have to say but you do not have to DO what others say.

You have to be happy with where you are, your dreams and ambitions. Do not let others misguide you. Watch some Tony Robbins for motivation
