With the digital explosion, people can easily buy high-end digital cameras and photo and video equipment and either start their own independent filmmaker career or start a small video or photography business in Dubai. Nowadays, it’s so easy to gather a few friends, go out and shoot some clips or photos, post them on your social media network and then start calling yourself a freelance photographer or videographer and start charging for your services.
However, just having your own camera and equipment is not going to be enough to produce quality work and actually succeed in this line of business. And if you are the client looking to hire photographers for your party, corporate event, or special gathering, you would want to know who are the posers and who are those who really know what they are doing.
In order get a legitimate Dubai photography company for your photography or videography needs, here are some important points to remember:
Get a company with experience
Since you are looking for photographers for a special event, it would be best to look for companies that already have years of experience in what they do. Though you can get less experienced companies for less price also, you must consider the quality of their work, professionalism, and readiness to handle difficult situations during an event and usually experienced photography companies are the ones who are able to deliver quality work while still being able to keep their act together in difficult shooting scenarios or situations. You wouldn’t want to bet your money on photographers or companies that promise good photos but end up not having enough experience or know-how when dealing with unforeseen situations such as low lighting conditions, technical problems, or even location problems for the shoot.
Get a company that listens to your requirements
A down side of getting experienced photo companies is that sometimes their photographers or staff are already so full of themselves and believe that they are so good that they forget to listen to their client’s needs. Instead of listening to what the customer wants, they tend to push their own ideas and actually put down the ideas of the client either because they are too lazy to listen or they just want to make the shoot easy for their team. In hiring or interviewing your potential Dubai photography company, remember that they should listen to your ideas and not just shut them down just because you are not a professional photographer.
Get a company that has shot your event before
Though getting a company that has experience is ideal, you should also look at what type of experience they have had. The most important thing is to match their experience with the even you are going to shoot to make sure that they already know what they need to do during the actual event date. So if you are planning a wedding, choose a photography company in Dubai that has actually shot several weddings and has the portfolio to show for it.
