Elements of Professional Photography (Part 1)

I was just looking over our previous posts, in particular the blog article titled Professional Photography Sydney, and figured how I can add on a point obvious to me in the example images, but probably not something that had been … Continue reading

Professional Photography Sydney

Light. It is something that is around us all the time, something so basic to us that we barely recognise it, rarely comment on it, and always expect it. Professional Photography Sydney is where it all started for me. And … Continue reading

Corporate Photography

Corporate Photographers

How can you value the service of Professional Corporate Photographers? Since corporate photography is not the final product that is sold for a finite amount, it is impossible to say that it generated a particular income. So how can one … Continue reading

Sydney Photographers – How to Choose One

Most people throughout their time in this beautiful world will seek out a professional photographer, but what criteria do you use to find the right photographer for YOU?  What makes one photographer a better choice over another?  What do you need to look for to ensure your photographic needs are met? Sydney Photographers (and around the world for that matter) are a dime a dozen, there are hundreds of competitors out in the photographic abyss…so what do THEY have that makes THEM stand out from the rest? Here are a couple of points to consider to help you find the Professional Photographer you are looking for:

1. Are they  a full-time photographer, or a weekend shooter? Full time photographers live an breathe photography and are more likely to have more experience. There is no substitute for experience.

2. Is the photographer registered with an industry body, such as the Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP)? There are photographers who are good at what they do, and do not belong to AIPP, however a Professional Body regulates, monitors and maintains industry standards which ensures the consumer is receiving a reputable, professional service. Check out this link for more information.

3. Have you seen their work? IT IS ESSENTIAL. Full stop. Whether it be on their website or by having a look at your friends’-cousins’-cousins’-cousins’ wedding album.  You need to know what their photographic capabilities are and how you feel about it. Are they professional, artistic, creative…is their style what are you looking for? If not move on.

4. Do your personalities mesh? It is important you like the person behind the lens, this allows for a smoother experience,particularly if you will be in front of the lense in the case of wedding and portrait photography. Suggest to meet up in advance, or at the very least make sure you have a good chat on the phone.

Consider these questions and answers and you are well on your way to finding the right photographer for the job!

Hope it helps…
