All too often I find clients coming to me after having been disappointed with their experience with their previous Gold Coast photographer. To ensure you don’t make the same expensive mistakes, when looking for professional Gold Coast photographers, consider the following tips to ensure that you’ll make a well-informed decision:
What experience do they have?
This should be the first question you a Gold Coast photographer. Also, be sure to find out if they specialise in the type of photography that you need. For instance, if you want photos of your newborn, it’s important that the photographer that you hire has extensive experience in the field of newborn photography. The more experience they have, the more you’ll become confident that they’ll be able to produce the results that you’re looking for.
Do they have professional studio for the shoot?
If you’d like your photography sessions to take place in a studio, it is crucial that the photographer you hire have his or her very own professional studio. Some actually do not have their own studio and can only offer outdoor shoots, and although the Gold Coast is beautiful, there are times where a studio shoot is preferred. If they have a professional studio, consider paying it a visit. You’ll want to make sure that it is a professional setup with all the lighting and backdrops required to address your specific needs.
Do they have an online portfolio of work?
When looking for a photographer, you want to see samples of their work, as this will help you gauge if they indeed have what it takes to produce excellent photos. It helps if they have online portfolio of work that you can take a look at the comforts of your own home. Visiting each studio of your chosen photographer just to see their portfolio will take a lot of time. Click here to view my portfolio so I can be added to the top of your list J
How does their price compare to other Gold Coast photographers
Make sure that you’re not being overcharged for a certain service. I highly recommended that you get quotes from each photographer that you’re seriously considering and then compare their prices. Here at Little Orange Photography, my sessions start at just $100.
Knowing what’s included in the service is very important. You need to make sure you know exactly what are you paying for. Is it just the session alone or is it a package that includes prints of your photos? Also, ask if they offer canvasses, albums, books, etc.
Ask for feedback
After doing your research and identifying the best Gold Coast photographers to hire, I would suggest that you ask for feedback from previous customers. Besides from making sure that your chosen photographer has the needed skills, this will give you an idea on how they treat their customers. Do they provide assistance in a timely manner? Are they easy to reach when certain problems are encountered? Are they polite and considerate? These will become very important especially if you’re in need of maternity or newborn photography services. You’re going to need a photographer who is not only great at what they do, but is also considerate and supportive of their clients.
