How to choose Real Professional Photographer??
I hear this question a lot from many people, especially from brides to be.
Everyone is entitled to have own opinion. Someone will tell you that professional photographer is that who has expensive camera. Another may say the one who has more than one camera. Sometimes I hear people say professional photographer is that who has huge lens!
In my opinion they are all wrong!
Let me explain you why.
If you have $10,000 dollars camera and $2,500 dollars lens doesn’t make you true professional photographer if you don’t have 3 very important qualities:
3. And most important “ Passion “
Not many photographers besides expensive gear have all these 3 qualities.
Don’t get me wrong. If you have expensive equipment you will make nice, sharp, quality images. But nothing more.
If you have at least first 2 qualities you will produce nice composed pictures.
But in order for pictures tell a story behind it, to show how two people fell in love, you must have 3rd, very important quality – Passion.
You must have a heart and love what you do. Without it - it’s just a pictures.
I know for a fact that for some photographers to shoot a wedding it’s just a rooting, make money. I am not saying that you have do it for free, but you must love what you do, you have to enjoy and become a “part of the family “with Bride and Groom for that day! Because you will see everything inside.
I can proudly say that besides all the top of the line equipment I own and use I also have those 3 very important qualities. And of course it’s for you to decide which photographer to choose for your Special Day!
I would like to thank you all for taking a moment for reading it and also for sharing and passing around this very important in my opinion message.
