Professional Photography for Pittsburgh based businesses
If you've ever watched a TV show like "Shark Tank" or "The Profit," you know that one of the most important things to get right is your imagery. Even if you have a great product or service, it's next to impossible to convince investors or clients that they should invest in it if the images of your business are poor quality.
There are several reasons why hiring a professional photographer is so important:
1. Professional photographers have years of experience with photography equipment and techniques.
2. Professional photographers know how to use lighting and angles to make their subjects look good (or bad) on camera.
3. Professional photographers also know how to edit photos so that they're clear, crisp and appealing to look at.
4. A professional photographer knows how to take photos from multiple angles in order to show off different aspects of your business, brand or product and what makes it stand out from the competition.
As a professional photographer, I get asked all the time why I should hire a professional photographer instead of doing it myself. The answer is simple. You wouldn't try to fix your own plumbing or build your own house, so why would you try and take your own photos?
Here are some reasons why:
1) You don't have time to learn how to use a camera. Even if you're able to take decent photos with your smartphone, there's no guarantee that they'll turn out well every time. In fact, there's a good chance that they won't! Plus, learning how to use a DSLR or mirrorless camera isn't easy either. It takes time to master these things and most people don't have that kind of time.
2) You don't know what makes for an awesome photo. Is it better when someone else does it for you? Maybe not...but at least they know what makes for an awesome image and can help guide you along the way until you get the hang of it yourself.
3) Your images won't be consistent with one another because each photographer has their own style of shooting based on their experiences and preferences which means that even if they're both using the same equipment.
