Picture Perfect

Nice cool weather and fresh air make for beautiful outdoor family portraits!  There are many factors to consider when creating the perfect exposure, from composition, lighting to clothing choices.  If taking your own family photo  proves to be too daunting, there are many talented professional photographers to hire in Dubai.  There are so many in fact, that making a choice might be difficult.  To help you find the perfect photographer for your family, here are some things to consider.

Display Space! Before choosing a photographer, think about where you want to hang your family portrait. What are the colors in that room, what style of furniture fills the space. Let the photographer know of this decor, it will help create the best image to match your room.

Style! We all have our own tastes, photographers are no different.  Each photographer has their own style, their own ways to express themselves through their photos.  Do you like photo journalistic shots or do you prefer something organized like a studio portrait?  High end studio portraits taken against a simple backdrop, fancy backdrops with many props, or low-key natural location portraiture taken by the beach or in your home?  Choose a style that suits you and then search for a photographer that has a similar style.

Budget! An obvious factor when choosing a photographer will be how much you want to spend.  Do you want to splurge on a photography package including prints, or do you have a limited budget.  Scope out the different offers out there.  Many photographers will have a session fee.  After the session fee you will have to choose between different products; prints package, framed prints, images on a DVD, or a printed album. There is also a wide variety of other options that photographers may offer, from greeting cards to fridge magnets!

Best Choice! In the end, the choice will be highly personal, only you can decide which photographer is best for you family. Consider these factors;

  • Formal training in all aspects of photography (lighting, composition, etc.)
  • Time spent on your images after the session
  • Photo editing abilities
  • Products offered

However, don’t rule anyone out that does not have all these credentials.  Some amateur photographers may just have a better eye for composition and be Photoshop-savvy compared to fully certified professional photographers.
