So, with so many high-quality photographs available, why are people still hiring professional photographers to cover events?

In this blog, we’ll answer that question for you, and not only that but what to keep in mind when you want to hire a photographer.

What to Shoot?

Even if you can imitate the technique of taking a shot, a professional photographer knows much more. They don't simply know "how to shoot," they also know "what to shoot." The majority of amateur pictures of an event are those to which they are intimately connected. Professionals cover the entire event.

Professional photographers know which photographs are essential to take. Amateurs are frequently troubled with requests and fail to capture what is crucial. This may work in a family function, but such blunders cannot be tolerated for corporate occasions.

Professionalism

This is possibly the most significant distinction. Professional photographers understand the responsibilities that come with the job. They won't show up in their nicest suit to cover a relaxing business retreat or in jeans and a tank top to cover a conference.

It’s not just about the choice of wardrobe; professionals know how to blend in. It's not right for a photographer to stand out. Professional photographers are remembered as moving cameras. They are discreet, polite, and organized.

Professional photographers will correspond with the event managers beforehand. Whether it’s a family or corporate event. With appropriate equipment and preparation, they will understand the job and quote you accordingly.

Amateur photographers sometimes over - or under - quote for employment. When they really shoot, this causes misunderstandings and a bad mood. Furthermore, amateurs are frequently unprepared, having run out of batteries, not having the proper lighting, and so on.

Equipment

Equipment is important. This is with the realization that a superb camera is not the only item on the list of photography equipment. While having a professional camera is important, having other necessary equipment might mean the difference between being a professional and an amateur.

Such goods include tripods, studio lights, a variety of lenses, and cleaning supplies. Professional photographers consider all of these factors while preparing and quoting for an event. Many professional studios, such as Grins 2 Go, that offer on-site photo printing must also have high quality portable equipment.

Impact-Media covers everything we’ve talked about in this blog, from top-notch equipment to the professionalism your event needs to run smoothly, without any inconvenience. So if you want to “re-live” the experiences captured in a single photo, contact Impact-Media and they’ll help you out.

Conclusion

This article should not be interpreted as a sanction of amateur photography. These are just a few distinctions to be aware of if you want to employ a photographer for a family, communal, or corporate event.

Hiring the correct photographer can be the difference between images you will cherish for the rest of your life!

Is Live Streaming better than Pre-Recorded for you?

If you've ever seen an event live broadcast, you are aware that mistakes can occur at any time. The camera could malfunction, the presenters could lose track of their script or go off course, the Wi-Fi could go out, etc. Even if everything goes according to plan, there is still cause for concern, especially if the stakes are high or there are more than a few thousand spectators. This is true even if there is a high likelihood that everything will be fine. While this is an enticing option, the pre-recorded film is unlikely to be as valuable as a live event. This article clarifies why live streaming is preferable to pre-recorded content for you. But first, let's define the terms "live video" and "pre-recorded video."
