I Am Available For Your All Your Photographic Needs
How do you find the right photographer for your business ?

A Quick Simple Answer
There is a long explanation I think you should read it.

SIMPLE ANSWER
🏠  Are They Local
💳  Is The Price Right *
👩  Do They Have Good Reviews
📞 Can You Ring Them For a Price.
📌  Important Will They Come Out to give you a price.
If The Answers Is Yes, Book them to come out, or ring them.
you can explain to them what you need. They can then assess how long it will take and give you a price that way you get no hidden surprises

DO NOT assume photographers just show up, shoot and send you photos. There is a lot of planning and time that goes into successful business photography sessions! Whether it’s for a holiday promotion, content fills or website images photographers take a lot of time to produce the best results.

 

TRUST ME when I say this, just because someone owns a camera doesn’t mean they know how to use it!

Unfortunately, in the photography world, unlike other industries, there are no legal regulations or licenses required for photographers to practice

 

Pricing How Much Should You Pay ?

Further down you will find my conclusion and how to overcome all the problems with pricing

 

FACT you can't determine quality by price alone.

If consumers can't automatically assume an expensive product is “better,” then how can they reach a conclusion about its quality? This is where gathering information comes in. You are not buying a lower quality product you are paying the right price for the service you require.

With Commercial Photography
pricing can be a nightmare with different photographers charging in different ways for example:

Example 1.....

Charging for individual modules

An initial consultation  £100

A setup fee  £190

an hourly fee on top  £50 to £150

a price per picture on top  £20

the copyright to the photos £200

the use of the photos  £12 to £60

editing the photos  £25 to £80

way in which it is supplied, on disc format or printed format  £240 - £1000

 

Doing it this way he does not need to know in advance what your requirements are, he merely charges you for what he does, you may end up with a bill off over £3000 pounds and that would be a bit of a surprise.

 

 

Example 2.....

Some photographers give a fixed price. But he cannot give you a fixed price until he knows what you want.

 

The problem with this method is that they will have to know beforehand your exact requirements, how long do you want for your initial consultation, how long will it take into setup, how many pictures do you want taking, do you want him to edit the photos, do you want him to supply them in three different sizes one for Facebook one for the Internet and one for printing, what format do you need. When he has all the information he can give you a fixed price.

 

Caution! In the pricing you may see the words, Starting From, Does not include. Now you need to ask more questions, to get a fixed price.

My Conclusion

First Best Practice
Best practice would be contact the photographer and have him come out.  You can now show the photographer exactly what you want photographing, Where it will be photographed the setup that will be required the help you will provide he can assess your needs and give you a fixed price for exactly what you require,  this way you get no hidden surprises,

Second Best Practice
Ring the photographer and try to explain exactly what you need he should ask lots of questions you will be on the phone for a while after you have finished talking he should be able to make an assessment and give you a fixed price, however this is for easier, if he his with you at your premises

I am always happy to go to a customer premises
