Risks of Hiring the Lowest Price Photographer
The old saying of you get what you pay for, is especially true when it comes to hiring a specialist professional. Low cost photographers can put you at risk. Would they take into consideration all of the 18 points above.
Event Photographers being in the wrong place at the wrong time
When photographing an event, the audience should be a primary consideration. Professional photographers will know where to position themselves correctly, it should be second nature at most business and corporate events. Professionals will get to the venue early to get an understanding of sight lines, have the correct equipment with them and discreetly take the photos they need and move aside.
Your guests should have a clear sight and not miss key messages or get a poor impression of your brand. Their event experience must always remain a positive one.
Poor quality event photos
How are your PR, Events and Marketing people going to show you at your best to follow up the event guests. Or increase the amount of touch points with prospects who weren’t there, with low quality photos. What lasting impression will that leave.
You’ve spent $10 000’s or $100 000’s on the event and you’ve got very little to run with until the next event.
We understand sometimes budgets run really tight and you must attempt to cut costs. Cutting back a little here and there is ok, we understand, but we suggest to look in areas that don’t live as long or aren’t as versatile as photos.
At the end of the next day many of the other event elements have been forgotten or unused, photographs live on and pay a return on investment for many years.
