Getting smart with photography
The only way any event photographer can get ahead of the competitive photography industry is to eliminate any bad habits which can save money and time. The Photo Team are masters of spoof paparazzi, party paparazzi and press paparazzi and have experienced the peaks and troughs of setting up a business but 6 years on and with full determination and persistence they have understood how to retain all their clients and provide a number of exemplary services such as the Open Photo Booths, Events Paparazzi, Professional Photography and SelfiePartyPrints.
So here are some do’s and dont’s to help new party photographers along the way:
Do not think that being a fake paparazzi hire photographer means to take thousands of photos at any given event. It means knowing when to take the photo at the right time. It is a waste of time trying to capture every single step a subject makes in order to get the one right shot. Listen, watch and think of what shot the client is most likely to appreciate. This way you will spend more time being aware of your surroundings rather than your eye constantly behind a camera. Taking less photos but of high quality means less editing afterwards!
We have a number of paparazzi hire photographers who are busy week in and week out, attending top events throughout London and Kent. Over time and with experience they have understood that thinking ahead is crucial, know the timetable of the day in advance and understand your camera so that the ISO settings are just right for the next shot. Failure to get the settings right will mean poor quality of photos and could jeopardise any future bookings.
Our event paparazzi London and event paparazzi Kent photographers have all understood why it is important to invest in a good camera in order to produce fantastic shots but don’t always assume quality is equal to the price. Focus less on the price tag, and more on whether or not a given item is right for you, especially when buying a camera. Does it fit your current skill level? Are you familiar with all of the functions and tools it comes with?
So communicate with other photographers, learn from the best and find something that suits you in order to understand what type of equipment and type of photography resembles you. All our photographers at The Photo Team have and so can you.
