How to Choose Your Travel Photographer
Daydreaming about your favourite overseas holiday destinations and the day has finally come! You research everything there is to do , all the tours and sightseeing worthy adventures. But now you are thinking that you phone camera and selfie stick wont quite do the trick, so off you go and you going to try and find a Photographer Budapest that captures your best moments in a foreign city.
Of course researching takes time and effort but starting with Instagram and Facebook are probably the best options when looking for a professional photographer. Catchy hashtags should do the trick on Instagram but don’t be fooled by influencers and celebrities with glamorous photoshop-edited holiday photos! This is their job and besides they do this full time. Instagram can be super competitive and sometimes reality versus online is not the same. Try and find the hidden gems, the in between and the locals. Look for a local photographer who knows the sites, offers you that something special. A photographer who responds fast and asks a lot of questions about your desired outcome, shows their genuine interest. Ask for price packages and time duration. You don’t want to be rushed on your photoshoot and certainly you are looking for flexibility. Some photographers can be very strict in the time they spend with the clients. Sometimes you can see when it is a rushed job and all they trying to do is get it over and done with at lighting speed. A holiday photographer who guides you through the poses and the shows you a few easy tricks or two has my confidence! Sometimes you need a little help and guidance on what poses look natural, candid and the least staged. Preparation is everything! Preparation not just for the portrait photographer but also for you the client. It is worth it to go the extra mile and think of possible outfit changes, accessories such as hats, scarfs, sunglasses and jewellery. Even showing off your tattoos can be a great feature in your photographs. But even if you have beautiful hair that is your most valued asset you can certainly show them off! This is your chance and you are the centre of attention on this special photo shoot. Even when it comes to wearing make up, if you wear make up already then slightly put your make up on with a heavier sweat proof finish and perhaps a little shine and metallics cannot hurt. Of course remember that it has to be tasteful yet fit the occasion. Remember to point out to the photographer where you think your weak points are. Anything that you do not like about yourself and you rather not draw attention in your photographs. Most often those can be very personal and everyone wants to appear their best on photographs and not show off chubby arms, or a double chin or badly polished fingernails.
Off you go and shine! Make all your friend jealous of your lovely time and amazing holiday photographs.
