What are the skills and qualities of a photographer?
A photographer may be self-taught or have completed a photography course (Bac pro, BTM, BTS, Master's degree, DNSEP, etc.). From his apprenticeship "on the job" or in school, he has acquired advanced skills in photographic technique. They have been able to broaden their knowledge in a specific field (portrait photography, wedding photography, corporate photography, culinary photography, etc.). They may be employed by a photo studio or have created their own business. They update their skills continuously by following the latest trends in photography.
Photography is an integral part of the artistic world because, like painting or sculpture, it is based on the balance and aesthetics of a composition. A photographer does not become a photographer by chance. Before becoming a professional photographer, he or she was a passionate amateur photographer, often from an early age. In his daily work, his passion remains intact and is reflected in his images.
Listening is the basic quality of a photographer who must understand the needs and expectations of his client before making artistic proposals. It is not a matter of delivering the same service to all his clients. Adaptation and personalization are at the heart of his practice.
Yes, it takes patience to be a photographer! From the first exchanges, to the necessary readjustments, from the client's hesitations to the children's limited attention span, the photographer deploys a wealth of patience! And it's worth the effort!
Sensitivity and creativity
Your photographer has an artistic sensibility that gives him a sense of balance and aesthetics. Without this vital sensitivity, his compositions would be bland, uneven and of poor quality. In addition to his theoretical knowledge and his practice in image construction, he has an instinctive sense of harmony.
When it comes to creativity, your photographer is in a perpetual state of renewal! He imagines, innovates, and is also inspired by the major contemporary trends to achieve ever more original images created specifically to meet your needs!
Support and guidance
Your photographer supports your project and brings it to life with personalised support and advice. Like a four-handed job, you sketch your first drawings, he puts them together like puzzle pieces to make a balanced composition with a fine finish!
Who said that an artist is not rigorous? Your photographer is a champion of organisation and planning! He draws up a back-plan for each service which allows him to respect the different stages necessary but also his deadlines! He is also an image professional who meticulously maintains his equipment and his work space.
How to choose a photographer?
It is logical that you should choose a photographer who corresponds to your project! To immortalise the most beautiful day of your life, it will be a wedding photographer. For fashion photos, it will be a professional who works with model agencies. By being a specialist in a field, your photographer has become an expert through a very sharp practice.
If you turn to a novice photographer, their rates will be lower than a seasoned professional. However, it is by practicing that you really learn photography! You should expect average quality photos without being mediocre. It all depends on your requirements! Also bear in mind that an experienced photographer, even a more expensive one, will spend less time on your project because he will be able to identify your expectations more quickly and make appropriate proposals.
If you want to shoot a wedding, a company seminar or a new product launch, the photographer must be available on a specific day. So be sure to ask the professional about his availability right away! Indeed, his agenda may be saturated several months in advance! Anticipate!
Your photographer is not just a service provider! He is a person to whom you will reveal yourself, your couple or your company values! If, at first sight, all this seems like a banal transaction, it is not! Emotions are often very present at the time of the concretisation of a project that has been thought about for months, even years!
It is therefore vital to feel confident with your photographer! From the very first exchanges, take the temperature! Is there a good feeling between you? Are you on the same wavelength?
Why book a photographer?
Every stage of life can be an opportunity for a portrait session with a photographer! You wish to benefit from the services of a photographer to reconcile with your image after a weight loss, an illness, a difficult event? Your photographer's kind look will accompany you on the road to appeasement because your image is your identity and certain difficulties in life can sometimes harm it. Portrait photography can also allow you to celebrate a passion, a sport, a tradition that is important to you by posing with a specific outfit or accessories.
Couple and family portraits
Love is a rich inspiration for photographers! Today's couples are happy and liberated and want to show their happiness through pictures that look like them! Couple goal ? Couple bastion? Couple cocoon? The choice is yours! The family value has become the sure thing once again, even if it is now much broader (blended family, single parenthood, homoparenthood). Whatever the type of family, the links are rich and the love shared! Soliciting a photographer offers additional happiness in the realization and acquisition of exceptional photographs!
In the age of the smartphone, the wedding photo remains a reference and for good reason! The wedding photographer is a specialist of the D-day, scrutinizing emotions and chasing happiness! He organizes, plans, sketches but leaves himself free to catch the stolen moments that often offer the most beautiful photos!
And why not a pregnancy photo session? Pregnancy photographers are self-confessed artists who transform the curves of the pregnant woman into a sacred landscape! Underwater photos are breathtaking, they promote magical compositions! The baby photo shoot allows you to immortalise your little one at a time of life when your child is growing so fast! Thanks to the baby photo shoot, you can capture the moment and keep it forever!
Do you want to take a portrait of a manager or staff members? The corporate photographer is the right man (or woman) for the job! He will guide you so that your images inspire confidence and convey the values you wish to transmit to your clients!
Your corporate photographer will immerse himself in your brand and your products to give your company's image its full dimension! Whether it's a report on your production facilities or a business portrait, your corporate photographer knows how to extract your expertise and uniqueness to position you clearly and solidly in a competitive market! The drone photographer can take original and contemporary photos of your buildings 50 metres above the ground! He can also take dynamic shots of your teams on your premises!
Your packshot photographer is a specialist in promoting your products through images. Whether it's for the opening of your physical or online shop, promotions, or the launch of a new product or range, he or she can stage your products to make them more attractive. Simple or complex, multi-view, 360°, situational, flat, ghost, everything is possible for your packshot photographer!
They are often classified as packshots, but they are different because of their particularity. Yes, they are indeed product photos, but they are food products that should appeal to the senses! This sensory dimension requires the food photographer to sublimate the dishes to allow the customer to have an experience close to the one he would have if the dish was in front of him! The culinary photographer's task is to capture the aroma, show the texture, reveal the fondant, illustrate the crunchiness!
If you want to create a photo book to become a model or update it, your fashion photographer will guide you to meet the needs and codes of the modelling agencies he knows well. Without a photo book, it is not possible to break through or evolve! It is your identity card to enter this world apart!
This is an area where the image is central! A real estate ad without a photo will not attract any visitors! Your real estate photographer knows exactly how to highlight a property and he has the right equipment for this! He can offer you the very trendy 3D visit to move virtually from one room to another without moving from his sofa! The drone, which is often used for this purpose, can also be used to take high altitude photos to visualise the extent of a property or land.
How much does a photographer cost?
As a rough guide, a one-hour photo session with a professional photographer costs between €90 and €150 including tax. However, there are many criteria that come into play when assessing the total cost of a photo service. The more renowned your photographer is, the higher his or her rates will be. If you want a photo shoot outside the studio (outside or at home, on your premises), time and mileage will be charged.
The price will also vary depending on the equipment used and whether your photographer needs to search for specific props for your photo. The price will be influenced by the number of images and the type of retouching (simple or complex) required. It will also change depending on the medium chosen (digital photos, paper album, etc.). All these elements are not bad surprises! They are clearly defined at the time of the estimate and are justified by the very high cost of the equipment and consumables as well as the expertise of the professional photographer.
