There is no shortage of freelance photographers. In fact, a joke going around online has it that “photographer” is the most common name found on Facebook. There is some truth in this from a numbers perspective–there is always a constant and large influx of newcomers into the photography business. But when it comes to quality, even though everyone has at least a few friends that call themselves photographers, it would be a mistake to trust them to shoot your wedding, your company’s products or even to get some simple portraits done.
Photography requires years of experience and training, dozens of projects under the belt and a significant investment in professional equipment. An entry-level DSLR camera which the would be photographer has learned to use from the Internet is not adequate gear. If you need a freelance photographer, you should be looking for someone who has years of experience, an impressive portfolio, good communication skills and a nice mix between artistic ability and technical know-how in order to master their craft.

We’re sure that they’re great professionals, have great portfolios and are eager to work on your projects, regardless of whether they are family or business related. We know that shooting corporate events is different from shooting weddings, and we also know that it’s critical that you find a photographer close to your home.
