Experience Level – Has this person photographed other Commercial Buildings/families/portraits/models? Does he/she do this for a living or for fun?
Photographic Style – Are the images that you are shown, what you would like to see? There are “buzz” words flying about everywhere about photojournalism, formal, classic candid, and so on. Do you want a mixture of black and white or only colour photos? Will they be shot in a Studio or on Location ?
Truth in Advertising – Is this the Gold Coast photographer that will be photographing your commercial Building, product, wedding or modeling portfolio or will they send in whomever is available. Don’t be shocked, this happens more often than you can imagine. Be certain that you know which Gold Coast photographer is going to be there and that you see HIS/HER work and meet with that photographer face to face.
Personality – Is the photographer that you meet someone that you can get along with? Is the “chemistry” there?
Delivery – How long does it take to get your proofs back, thank you cards, your finished album, your bridal portrait, etc.?
Portfolio – Have you seen their Portfolio. Do they have a good range of Architectural, building, real estate, wedding or modeling, portrait Images. Have they been recommended by a friend, relative, reliable business associate or a Gold Coast or Brisbane modeling agency.
Gold Coast Photographers should not shy away from any of the above questions so don`t be afraid to ask them.
