It is very difficult choosing the right photographer. There’s a lot of competition out there these days, but there are only a few that really make it in cities across the United States, United Kingdom, Europe and indeed the world. There are some very important factors that play a huge part in choosing the best photographer in Florida for your professional headshot and portrait photography. Although, I would love to tell you I’m the best at what I do, it doesn’t mean you aren’t going to do your research on others! So ask yourself these questions. Have you looked at the photographers portfolio and samples? If they don’t have any social media pages or a website then that should be a huge red flag. Not to say anyone who doesn’t have a presence online is a bad photographer, but they may certainly be outdated and you want someone who knows what is important in today’s photography. The design of the website will also have clues about the photographer’s personality and photography style.

Ken Ackerson ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Chris is awesome to work with and does an amazing job. I worked with Chris to update my headshots, and they were a vast improvement over my previous headshots from another photographer. Chris is very detailed oriented, and it shows in the final product. I highly recommend Chris for anyone looking for professional headshots.

Carefully review potential photographers’ websites and blogs, the images displayed will give you an idea of their style. Do they capture the looks that are important to you? Is feedback from clients positive? How does the photographer respond to the feedback? How do they interact with their Instagram followers? Do they seem friendly and personable? Have you met with your potential photographer? It is best to meet the potential photographers in person to really see for yourself if they are who people describe themselves to be. If you like what you see on their site, call to see if they’re available for your date. Talk to them to ensure they are able to do what you need them to do. Don’t try to compare professional photographers to a person who does it as a side job and has absolutely no experience in the field.Take a look at their offering and see if professional retouching is included. How will your photos be delivered, email, Dropbox, flash-drive? Are additional portraits available and can you order Professional Lab Prints? You only get your photos taken by a professional photographer every couple of years, so it’s important to make the right decision for you.
