Always Hire A Professional Photographer by Katherine Heath
As professional photographers we know it can be tempting to call the first person you can think of that owns a decent camera and ask them to take a few quick snaps of your finished product. It will save time and money. However, in the same way asking the first person you can think of that owns a sharp knife to perform surgery isn’t too clever, this is really not the best idea. Shooting good images may seem easy enough but that’s only because true professional photographers make it look that way. Behind our work lies years of experience, high levels of technical knowledge and professional software programs that we REALLY know how to use to get the most out of our work. An increasing number of people are making purchasing decisions based solely on what they see on the internet. If you’re showing your best work, make sure it’s shot in it’s best light. Professional photographers will be aware of the best time of day to shoot a room, how to avoid bad reflections and how to balance the light between inside and out, meaning all you need to is make sure you’re product is looking it’s best.
At TonyHphoto we do a lot of work for architectural and plumbing and construction companies. They all agree that our high quality images are of huge importance to their business. When it comes to showing potential clients your work, the last thing you want to be putting out there would be photographs with curved walls, dark corners and reflections of cameras that got missed in retouching. It is easy for people to relate the quality of the images directly to the quality of your work. It’s important to show your high standards from the word go.
However, we know, as a small business ourselves, there are huge benefits of keeping costs low. For this reason we work highly efficiently. We work as a team so are therefore able to achieve a lot more in the time provided, we process our images in a methodical way and deliver A5 versions of your images straight away via the internet. As professional photographers we also make sure we have discussed the brief in detail, researched into a company’s branding and style and visited the location prior to the shoot. Assessing potential issues before the day allows us to deal them before they become a major problem. This pre-shoot ritual also means our clients need not be present on the day which allows them to continue with more pressing work back at the office. We strongly value the fact that so many of our clients feel complete trust in our ability to shoot their spaces in the style they need without their constant input.
We look forward to working with you!
P.S. We invite you to scroll through some images we shot recently for Atlantic Plumbing. They are a long standing client of ours for whom we have produced an array of work. We are always left to our own devices when it comes to these shoots and Atlantic Plumbing are always very happy with the results.
“On every occasion you have been professional, courteous, meticulous and effective… You have listened to our needs as the client and have always managed to meet our expectations… These end results are what has made us extremely satisfied clients and we are sure anyone who uses your specialised services will have the same experience” – Frank Harrington, Owner of Atlantic Plumbing
