What to look for in an event photographer in Columbus, Ohio

Are you in need of a photographer to capture your next corporate conference, cocktail party, company retreat or special event? If you’ve recently started searching for one, you probably realize it can be a daunting task. As with hiring any professional, there are several considerations to keep in mind when evaluating your event photography options. Shellee Fisher Photography and Design is your best choice for an event photographer in Columbus, Ohio. Get to know her work and review her portfolio, ask for her references, and be sure to communicate your needs to her. Here are some considerations to keep in mind in selecting your next Columbus, Ohio event photographer.

Establish a budget

You’ll need to create a budget to ensure that your photography needs can be met within the constraints of that budget.

Communicate your needs and ideas to your photographer

It is critically important to let your photographer know the intended use for the photographs. Many events are photographed simply to provide a memento. Other events are photographed with a specific purpose in mind. The photographs may be used in marketing or in promotional materials and be published on social media platforms. The specific use of the photograph will often dictate how the pictures are shot. You will need to provide your photographer a catalog of event attendees, speakers, and special guests.

Look through your photographer’s portfolio and ask for references

Get references from your event photographer. You will want to take a look at your photographer’s portfolio to make sure they capture photographs in a way that is consistent with your idea for your event. You will also want to be sure they are experienced in event photography. Not every good photographer is a good event photographer. Don’t be afraid to ask for references. Shellee Fisher Photography & Design is happy to provide you both access to her portfolio and her references from an array of Columbus, Ohio clients.

Search online and read online reviews

Now it’s time to turn to Google. Check customer reviews to make sure the photographer has a good reputation. Also, look at the photographer’s website to get a feel for who they are and their typical photographic style. Establishing a relationship of trust with your photographer can go a long way toward you getting the photographs you want.

Make sure your event photographer has experience photographing events

Shellee Fisher Photography & Design has well over a decade of experience photographing corporate events in Columbus, Ohio. If you’re planning a corporate leadership summit, you don’t want a wedding photographer for your event. Her portfolio should be a sufficient reference but don’t be afraid to ask specifics about the types of events she has photographed.

Ask how quickly your Columbus, Ohio event photographer can develop the photos and produce results.

You will want to be sure that your photographer takes great photos and gets those great photos back to you within the timeframe you require. It is best to be upfront with your photographer as to your specific needs so that you are on the same page to avoid any misunderstanding down the road.

Make sure you have good chemistry with your photographer.

Do you trust the photographer’s artistic skills? Is your photographer professional? Are they both timely and responsive? Establishing a rapport with your photographer will give you confidence that you have selected the best Columbus, Ohio photographer for your important event.
