Portrait Photography Advice You’ve Been Looking For
Who needs a portrait?
Everyone for sure.
I would recommend having a professional photo session at least once a year. It the best way to save your memories, for you and your descendants.
How can I be sure that my photographer is the best?
Make sure, that you have a look at their portfolio. If you like their style, send a message to the photographer for more information.
Bidvine tip: When you’re looking for a photographer (or other professional) on Bidvine, keep an eye out for pros with lots of reviews and a full profile. Some of them may even be Best Of Bidvine award winners!
What questions should I ask the photographer?
If you like to look amazing at your photographs (who doesn’t?) – ask questions how you should prepare yourself for the session. Share your ideas about the photo session and be open to suggestions.
You can also ask about printing services so that you can save your photos in the best way.
What is the best place for a photo session?
Not always your comfort zone. Think outside the box, and go outside. Show a bit of place where you live.
Any other piece of advice?
Remember to get ready for a photo shoot like for a date. In other words, look fabulous. And have a fun during your great photo session.
