You get to the prom and there’s a line of impatient kids waiting to get their pictures taken by the hired dance photographer. You finally get up there to take your shot and you are rushed through. The photographer is stressed to get as many couples taken before they all leave the line.

Honest But Brutal Review on Photography Price Shoppers

Be Prepared to Be Shocked By My Honesty

senior-portrait-prices-ArtFor those of you that fall into this category, this post may offend you. It’s my brutal and honest review on how we feel when people call us looking for senior portrait prices. If this review offends or shocks you then my point has been made.

Calling a photographer by choosing a random number is not the way to hire a photographer especially if the photographs are important to you. I’ll never understand how you can hire someone based on the price. What is the point of calling around if you don’t know what kind of photography work that certain photographer produces. He could give you a sill low-ball price and you have no idea what kind of pictures you’ll receive. You could waste your time and effort on someone who has no idea what they’re doing.

Hiring a photographer is a process. First, you need to call and listen how the person answers the phone. Are they friendly and patient? Are they trying to sell you or just give you the facts about the company and the way they operate? These are all crucial things to know so you’ll know what to expect when it comes time for your actual photography session.

So, you have a choice. Hire anyone with a cheap price or investigate, look at samples of work and pay what the photographer is charging. It basically a one-time payment to get the quality of photographs you need and deserve.
