What's The Difference Between Professional Photographers And Chain Studios & Non-Professionals
Professional photographers have and still take the time to learn about lighting. Controlling the light is critical in high end, professional photography. Correct light modification will make a nicely composed shot, great! Non-professional and chain studios will not and do not take the time to set up different lighting scenarios to suit the story being told. They all have cookie-cutter lighting setups and only shoot with those setups.
Another difference is the time a non-pro and chain studio take to tell their clients story. Remember, you, as a client, go to have your photos taken to capture specific moments to be cherished for a very long time. A professional photographer takes a lot of time preparing for a shoot. From the first phone call to the pre-shoot consultation to the actual photo session, time is needed to accomplish a great end product. We, as professionals take the time to get to know our clients. We want to know who they are and what they will be trying to accomplish with there photo sessions. Non- pros and chain studio do not take that time, but that time is a must. Most photo sessions I do take 1 to 2 hours or even more if that's what is needed. Wardrobe changes and scene and/or location changes take time.
In my studio I want to satisfy my clients needs, but I also want them to experience a level of service that they have never had prior to choosing me as their photographer. I want them to have fun during the entire time they are with me.
So please, take your time and think about who you really want taking the photographs that are going to mean so much to as time passes. I'm sure you want them to last a long time. Choose a professional photographer who will suit your needs.
