professional photo shoots
Are they a big deal? Do I really need to have them taken? Will it really make a difference?
Yes, yes and YES!
We all want to look our best when we're promoting ourselves and our art. We want to give a good first impression. So what makes a professional photographer better than our family members?
Here's a few reasons:
Even though your cousin may be an aspiring photographer, they may not have the equipment that will help you look your best. That lone bright flash on your face won't go away very easily. A professional photographer has the proper lighting, backdrops, poses and most importantly, the eye, to get the best picture.
A professional photographer will have the proper quality of files that we must have to print. All photos must be at 300dpi in order to print properly and not look pixelated or blurry. A professional photographer can prepare those files for you and you don't have to worry about it!
Booking a photographer could take some extra time and a little money out of pocket, but in the long run, you'll be glad you did it. When you're looking at your cd 5 or 10 years from now, you'll be glad you captured yourself in the most professional way (and you'll still look young!).
You never know where a professional photographer is hiding. Ask around your church, your work, your kid's school, anywhere...someone may know someone else that can meet with you and do a shoot. It's always fun to work with someone you know personally because they know YOU!
If you're considering the options, I highly recommend that all of our artists visit a professional photographer. TMG wants you to accomplish your dream and look good while doing it!
