I get asked this question all the time. The answer is not simple either, just like any other profession time is money. My time is valuable, just like yours is. I have over 30 years of experience being a photographer. I have photographed many different types of events and worked many different settings. I am at the point in my career where there isn’t much I haven’t seen or done in the photography world.
This allows me to know what I am worth as a photographer and an artist. What I do is art. I am creating a long-lasting image that you and your family or your business will cherish or use or appreciate for years.
Just because someone owns a camera doesn’t mean they know how to use it. In the digital age that we are in, where everyone with an iPhone and an Instagram Account or Facebook page can market themselves as a photographer, it is important to find a photographer that you can trust to capture your memories or market your business. After all, those precious moments disappear in a flash, and you only get one chance to make a first impression.
When choosing a photographer, it is a good idea for you to find out about the photographer, learn about their experience, reputation, and business policies. Photographers’ prices tend to be based on an industry standard that is equivalent to their skill and experience.
