With the influx of digital cameras of all kinds out came everybody and their next door neighbor with their own digital camera eager and willing to call themselves a professional photographer. Yes, some potential photography clients took the bait and hired them and accepted the inferior quality only to save a few bucks. Some of the cheap for hire started taking wedding pictures as well. They would stop at nothing. Their point and shoot little hands were everywhere taking work from the professional.
Not so fast! Not all people out there are willing to settle on whoever the cheapest photographer is. There still is a clientele who want a service and top quality portraits. For those professional photographers feeling the crunch from the amateur need to keep on top of their skill level and create portraits the amateur can not go. This will separate the professionalism, artistic abilities creative posing from the “Point and shoot” photographer. Anyways, these weekend amateurs come and go and there’s always another to take his or her place around the corner.
So, is it worth paying more to have a seasoned portrait photographer take your portraits? We think so. Having your family photography taken by the studio professional can guarantee you will have artistic and quality photographs taken that will last you a lifetime. If this is a one-time event by all means don’t skimp. Have it done right. It’s not like you’re taking out a 30 year mortgage or a 6 year car payment. It is worthwhile paying a professional who has studies his or her craft for years.
