CHOOSE A TRUE PROFESSIONAL OUTER BANKS PHOTOGRAPHER – YOU CAN TELL THE DIFFERENCE!
Insist on a professional who demonstrates:
IMAGING EXCELLENCE – portfolio consistently evidences established technical standards.
EDUCATION AND TRAINING - has recognized degrees, internships, and professional awards.
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT – regularly pursues continuing professional education.
ACCOUNTABILITY - has earned superior ratings from objective agencies, such as BBB.
REPUTATION - has positive client testimonials.
ETHICS - holds memberships in professional organizations that have codes of ethics.
TRANSPARENCY - pricing, portfolio, policies, place of business, contact information – all easy to find and understand.
GUARANTEE - confident professionals stand behind their work.
You want only the best for your family! Exercise caution when considering businesses and individuals who do the following: identify themselves as “award-winning” without identifying the award; operate without an address and/or phone number; provide no substantive background information about themselves; show little or no pricing; keep all of their client galleries private; provide no evidence of training or education in the field; show consistently poor quality images; maintain no professional memberships; have no recommendations, ratings or testimonials in their favor.
When faced with overwhelming choices, often we settle for the business offering the lowest price. Buyer beware! In today’s “shoot and burn” photography marketplace, the pretender taking substandard pictures and offering all the images for a shockingly low price is everywhere. But that service is just not worth buying – it is a waste of your hard-earned money. Of course, we want you to choose us to celebrate your family! But if you don’t, at least take our advice and choose a competent, reliable, ethical professional, one who offers a valuable service for a fair price. Use our checklist above to guide you towards an excellent choice for your family.
