Bonnie’s guide for matters to discuss with any photographer before you hire them to create your unique look for yearbook.
1. Shooting and Editing Style
You are hiring a professional photographer for both the way they compose photos and the way they edit them. You don’t have to be an artist or know any photography terms to be able to find a photographer whose style you love.
Searching through tags on Instagram is a great way to find local photographers and to get an idea of what editing styles you like.
Will your photographer be able to accommodate the location you want to shoot in? Or, on the other hand, do they have suggestions ready to go if you have no idea where you want to shoot?
At Bonnie Photo, we have a questionnaire that helps students figure this out, and a list of favorite locations. Also, we don’t charge extra for travel within the Boulder-Denver metro area!
3. Access to Images
This is becoming an older model of doing business, but some photographers still do not include any photo editing or image release in their package price. Rather, they require you to choose from proofs and pay for each of those that you would like edited and printed.
Make sure your ask your photographer explicitly about this, so you don’t end up with a much larger bill than you anticipated. We include gorgeous digital galleries in every package.
