Commissioning photography Tip 04 – What equipment do they use, & does it matter?

Whether you require images of your new office building, your workforce or a new product range, the images you use need to capture attention almost instantly.

Naturally when it comes to choice of equipment photographers have personal preferences. However, it is reasonable to expect a certain standard of equipment.

Although it is true that images purely for web-use do not need to be high-resolution, they have to stand out, many subjects require sophisticated lighting techniques using a myriad of light shaping accessories that will help to make your manufacturing line and products come alive.

It is not acceptable to turn up to a shoot at a high-tech factory with a hand-held camera with a single flash, it will not help to represent your company at its best.

Regardless of what you pay for something, if you end up not being happy to use it, it was expensive!

Your image is your future: trust it to a true professional!

The guidelines below will help you to ask the right questions and make the most appropriate choice.

When you are looking around for a photographer you will soon discover that there are a lot of photographers to select from, all with differing levels of expertise in different photographic disciplines. Commissioning a photographer that lacks specialist experience could end up costing you money.

It obviously makes sense to select a photographer with proven knowledge of your particular area of business. If they are experienced they should already be aware of your particular needs anticipate your questions and provide examples of similar commissions before they are asked.

If someone tells you “we do everything” it’s probably true! With the word “poorly” added!!!

Advice on commissioning commercial photography Tip 01

When you are looking around for a photographer you will soon discover that there are a lot to select from, commissioning an inexperienced photographer could end up costing you money.

The guidelines below will help you to ask the right questions and make the most appropriate choice.

Anyone earning his or her living from acting as a photographer is by definition, a professional! Unfortunately, it is all too easy for someone with no professional experience or qualifications, to trade as a professional photographer.

A cheaper quote for your photography project may seem appealing, but is it worth the risk, choosing the wrong photographer could end up costing you a lot more!

One guide is whether a photographer holds any professional qualifications and is a member of a recognised professional body. At the bottom of this page, I have listed the two main UK bodies that assess standards and grade professional membership.

British Institute of Professional Photography (BIPP) http://www.bipp.com/

The Association of Photographers (AOP)http://home.the-aop.org/
