Finding a photographer? Working with your photographer? Getting the shot you want.

Are you ready with amazing, quality photographic images?

 

During the SNAG Professional Development Seminar Photographer Roger Schreiber says: "Quality sells" and "Remember more people see the photographic image of your work than ever see it in person."


The time and money required to produce professional quality images is relatively small in comparison to all the work you put into a finished piece. 
It is an investment. The pay off comes from the free publicity, visibility and long term credibility that you can receive when you are included in a exhibition, book or magazine!

 

Find more information on ASK Harriete, in the meantime here are a few tips.


Wondering how to find a photographer?

Study the photos in the 500 Lark Books, top quality publications or look on the SNAG web site for a list of photographers. Another idea is to contact local art schools for graduating photo students.


WORK WITH your photographer.

By that I mean, discuss in advance the type of image you want, the angle of the piece, and the side or view that you prefer. Photographer Doug Yaple wrote an excellent handout for the Professional Development Seminar during the SNAG 2011 Conference titled, Guidelines and Tips for Working with Photographers.

Fulsome.cu.iron. Get the shot you want!
During the PDS, Doug Yaple said, "Don't overlook getting in tight to accent something critical."  Your detail image should be able to stand alone on its own merits AND be a companion image to your full view. Carefully consider the meaning, content, story, or inspiration behind the work and try to capture this in the detail photo.



Do you want to learn how to take your own photography?
Next Tuesday's post includes tips and tricks from three professional photographers from the Seattle 2011 Professional Development Seminar.  They generously offer advice on how to improve your photography.

Stay tuned, put it on your calendar or subscribe to ASK Harriete.
