7 Reasons Why You Should Hire a Photographer Instead of DIY
When it comes to Photography these days, everyone is a “photographer”, with the Smartphone Cameras and DSLRs that are available to us, we are always having Photos taken and Memories captured whenever there’s a need for it (Or even when there isn’t a need).
So why Hire a Photographer if Uncle Bill has a Good Camera and Cousin Shelley loves taking photos on her iPhone?
Photographers are always Capturing and Shooting many occasions, all of the time. However, there are a lot of Professional Photographers that focus on one key area within Photography and that becomes their specialty. Even so, to get to being a Professional, they would have already jumped through all the hoops, experiencing all of the many types of Shoots – With this, a Photographer learns to adapt to the different situations and easily gains a grip on the needs and requirements of the Client.
Most photographers know how to deal with each situation, whether it may be getting the right shots at a Family Shoot or keeping the children focused at a Kids Birthday Party, or perhaps getting the perfect angles at a Graduation or making the right moments for a Couples Shoot – The Photographer can easily adapt and work with all kinds of situations.
Benefit: You do not have to worry about rounding up the Family and getting the Troops to pay attention. The Photographer is able to do that for you.
Having to always Shoot and Process Images for various Clients covering many situations, the Photographer becomes very consistent with his / her work output.
The Work that the Photographer puts out will show consistency, and from this, you can judge whether or not the Photographer will be suitable for you.
This also makes it quite easy for you to find the perfect Photographer for your needs. These days, most Photographers would have an online portfolio, showcasing their works; making it extremely convenient for you to find what you need. Because Photographers are consistent, you can get an idea, beforehand, what your Photos would eventually look like in the end.
Benefit: You can decide beforehand, whether or not a Photographer is for you.
3. Equipment and Skill
A Photographer is not a Photographer because he / she has an expensive DSLR (Of course, that could play a part). A Photographer has Skill and Training. A Photographer knows How, When, Why and What, when it comes to capturing those special moments.
Along with that, a Photographer has the equipment required to get the Job done. The Flashes, The Lenses, The Cameras. With the Equipment and Skills combined, there is not much that he / she cannot do when it comes to Photographing. Knowing the Angles, Lighting, Poses, Positions and The Camera itself – A Photographer knows how to Take a Photo.
Benefit: No need for DIY – The Photographer has everything that is needed.
As mentioned above, the Photographer will have the Equipment – That in turn, gives you Quality.
A Photographer not only gets great shots and moments; they get it all in Quality.
You know that you will receive amazing Photos, with excellent Quality from a hired Photographer. This plays a huge role when you are wanting to Print Photos – Whether it be Canvas or Wall Mounts, or for Photos Frames and Albums, Quality matters. Even if it is to just store away Digitally, Quality Photos look better overall.
Benefit: Professional Quality is received.
5. Professional Editing
The Job of the Photographer does not end when the Photo Shoot ends – Mots of them still need to Process the Photos for you. The Second part of the Job is an extremely skilful part, and this is where the Photographer turns Great into Perfect!
The Photographer would load all of the Photos taken into their Processing Software, and individually check, tune, edit and verify each photo for you. This enhances the photos for you, giving you even greater quality than that of just shooting with Camera.
Benefit: Your Photos are taken from ordinary to extraordinary, all in the package of Photography!
6. Everybody in the Photo
Of course, now with Uncle Bill and Cousin Shelley not having to be running around capturing photos on their Phones and Tablet, they can be in the Photos that are being taken by the Photographer.
This also minimizes the need to collect all Photos taken by Friends and Family as you get all of the Good Ones from the Photographer.
Benefit: No more Photos with missing Family Members and Friends!
7. Artist’s Touch
If a Photographer is hired to do a Location Shoot for a Couple, He / She already knows beforehand what would be the best places, times and spots for such a shoot. The Photographer will also, very easily be able to guide the Subjects for best poses and positions.
With a Photographer’s artist touch, the average photo becomes an art piece in the end, making the shot even more cherish able and appealing.
Benefit: With today’s online photo sharing platforms and applications, people are more and more wanting to show off their awesome photos – And that is where the Artist’s Touch works in your favor!
Please note: I am compiling these benefits and reasons from a general perspective and in no way am I stating that a Photographer will provide these benefits or that a Photographer will only provide these benefits.
