Know Your Worth: A Breakdown On How To Price Your Photo Services

shutterstock_390834172
One of the biggest challenges of starting a business is figuring out how to price the goods and services you offer. You don't want to undersell yourself and devalue the market, but overpricing and scaring off potential clients is just as dangerous. Pricing similar to the competition is a good place to start, but since what you're offering is presumably not exactly the same, the prices shouldn't be either. That's why we've compiled this guide that will break down everything you need to know about pricing. The first thing to remember is that your pricing shouldn't be exactly the same as the competition's, just as your services aren't exactly the same. While it's good to compare pricing, it's also important to have a strong...

Stoffer Photography Photo by Stoffer Photography John and Maura Stoffer have been shooting weddings together since 2008, but they never expected to fall in love with the art form.

Do Your Research  With proposal photography, you only get one chance to get the perfect shot, so it’s crucial to do plenty of research before the question is popped. Talk to the person who’s proposing about their plan for the evening. Will it be a private, intimate event with just the couple, or will family and friends be a part of the festivities as well? If the proposal includes more people than just the couple, be sure to coordinate with the family and friends and make sure everyone is clear about the plan, the time and the location. You don’t want little cousins popping up in the background of photos of the couple before the big question gets popped. Scout the...

Your Lens Can Make Or Break You: What To Use For Every Type of Shoot

How to pick the right lens
When it comes to photo equipment, lenses are everything. You could have the most expensive camera bodies that Nikon and Canon make - the $6,000 Nikon D4S and Canon EOS 1DX - but that won’t matter if you’re not bringing the right kind of glass to your shoots. If you show up to a basketball game with only a fixed 50mm lens, you’re never going to capture those layups or fouls that happen across the court. If you show up to a portrait shoot with nothing but a macro lens, you might end up with great images of your subject’s eyes, but you won’t capture any portraits worthy of a high school yearbook or a family album. If you’re trying...
