How to Choose the Best Portrait Photographer with these 4 Tips

Updated: Jun 20, 2019

Have you ever tried to get professional photographs of yourself? If so, you'll know that it can be tricky to get the perfect light, poses, makeover and outfits. So in order to cover your bases you could just contact a professional photographer. But there are a few things you should know before you book your portrait session to ensure the best results. This post will help you navigate through the options of choosing the best photographer out there.

Here are some of the key points to look out for when you do your research:

  • Make sure your photographer gets to know you and your story and takes the time for a consultation. At the consultation you should discuss, how you would like to be photographed, who you would like to be photographed with, the makeover and outfits. If this service is not offered or covered you'll have trouble getting exactly what you're looking for.

  • Ensure your photographer has an amazing portfolio so you can refer to his images at the consultation and show him the images you're most drawn to.

  • Make sure to discuss with the photographer the style you're looking for. It could be anything like Vanity Fair, GQ, a classic Vogue look or simply a personalised style that he and his stylist can help you with.

  • Any good photographer should let you know what are his products and prices before the photo shoot session. This is important because transparency is key on building a professional relationship.

While not necessary, some great bonus features of a great photographer are trust, competences and professionalism.

Now that you know how to choose the best photographer, you're ready to start looking for one without worrying you'll end up with images of you that you don't love.
