What are you looking for from your portrait photographer? Are you trying to showcase a specific talent of yours? Maybe you’re in Las Vegas for a weekend and want a photographer to capture your family on vacation? Whatever your portrait photographer needs may be, Christian Purdie Photography is willing to help.
There are multiple types of portrait photography, and we’ve engaged in a lot of them. Here are a few reasons why you should consider hiring a professional portrait photographer.
Will your portraits consist of multiple people, or just yourself?
This is an important question because it will give the photographer an idea of what it is they’re preparing for. Communication with a photographer is crucial because it ensures that they provide you with the photos you want.
If you’re looking to do a portrait with multiple people–like a family portrait–then it’s important to have a rough idea of the location you want to shoot at and the underlying ‘essence’ of the portrait photos. If you’re looking to update a holiday card, then perhaps happy family photos at the Las Vegas sign are what you’re looking for.
Conversely, if your portrait session is just for yourself, communicate to your photographer what it is you want. Have an open conversation with your photographer. Once they glean a decent amount of information about yourself and your personality, they’ll cater their photography style to meet your needs and wants. There are few things worse than paying for photos you don’t particularly like, so avoid this by conversing with your photographer.
What is the purpose of your portrait photos?
Are you using your portraits in a portfolio to look for a job related to your field? Or do you just want to upload them to social media? Whatever the case may be, it’s important to communicate that with your photographer. Consider bringing multiple outfits and relevant props to your shoot, as they will provide variety for your photos in a limited amount of time.
Christian Purdie Photography and portrait shoots
What makes Christian Purdie Photography so unique is that we don’t rely on a photography studio for our shoots. We travel with the equipment necessary to provide our clients with studio-grade photos! In a sense, we are a mobile photography studio. This allows us to utilize the brilliant scenery of Las Vegas, Red Rock, and Mt. Charleston in our photoshoots.
