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 below?
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.
How are your PR, Events and Marketing people going to show you at your best to follow up the event guests? Or increase the number 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 need high-quality photos to use for promotions 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.
After a few days when your clients and prospects are back at their desks in their usual routine, many of the other event elements may have been forgotten. The photos you send them post-event will help you be remembered and live on in goodwill that will pay a return on investment for many years.
Will the Photographer Relate to Your Guests?
Will the low price photographer you hire relate to your guests? Have they worked with this demographic before? Two questions you may want to consider.
Is there an understanding of the pressures that your event presenters, staff or other vendors are experiencing.
Working as a team during your event is paramount to bringing all the elements together seamlessly from the perception of your guests.
Low-cost photographers may appear to save you a few dollars, but at what cost in compromising your brand.
