Are you thinking about getting new headshots? It must be very hard choosing the right photographer. There is so much competition out there these days, but there are only a few that really make it to the spotlight. Hector Cavazos is one of the best photographers in Fresno. He is a local and serves as Central Valley’s top headshot photographer! There are some very important factors that play a huge part in choosing the best photographer in Fresno. Let’s go over some questions to ask yourself.
1.Does the photographer have a portfolio and samples to show you?
If he/she does not have any social media pages or a website that should be a major red flag. Not to say anyone who doesn’t have a presence online is a bad photographer, but they may certainly be outdated and you want someone who is in the loop and knows what is important in today’s photography. The design of the website will also have clues about the photographer’s personality and sensibility. You can find Hector Cavazos on most social media platforms: Hector’s Instagram, Hector’s Facebook, Hector’s LinkedIn, Hector on Yelp, Hector’s Pinterest. Hector has a lot of amazing content, a huge portfolio, and the best photo service in Fresno.
2.Have you done your homework?
Start your search by reading reviews from recent clients and browsing local listings. Carefully review potential photographers’ websites and blogs, which will give you an idea of their style. How do they capture the moments important to you? Is feedback from clients positive? How does the photographer respond? How do they interact with their Instagram followers, do they seem friendly and personable? You get the idea.
3. Have you set up an interview with your potential photographers?
It is best to meet the potential photographers in person to really see for yourself if they are who people describe them to be. If you like what you see on their site and their fees are in your ballpark range, call to see if they’re available for your date. Talk to them to ensure they are able to do what you want. You may want to show them a few samples to introduce your expectations that way there are no surprises. Do this with 3-4 photographers.
4. Are they giving you reasonable prices?
The only way to find out is to hunt around and compare apples to apples. That means do not try to compare professional photographers to that of a person who does it as a side gig and as absolutely no education or real experience in the field. It is only fair to compare professional with professionals. When interviewing the photographers make sure to find out all important price details.
Questions to ask should be:
- Are touch-ups included?
- Is tax included?
- Are there any printouts included?
- Can you have all the digital copies?
It is important to take your time and really make the right decision. I hope our tips can help you in your decision.
