Why Should I Hire a Photographer?

Anyone could walk into a store, and buy a camera. Even smartphones have exceptionally powerful cameras.

So why would you need to hire a photographer?

And with so many people purchasing cameras, making business cards, and calling themselves photographers, how are you supposed to know who is really a professional?

The Professional Photographers of America (PPA) is an organization dedicated to teaching photographers how to be a true professional photographer. PPA members have access to hundreds of classes and workshops that teach everything from lighting, posing, and retouching, to pricing, ensuring quality products, and providing great customer service—and that’s just to name a few!

I’m proud to say that I am a PPA member, and have grown immensely from being one. I’m on my way to becoming a Certified Professional Photographer, and am super excited about the journey!

But what does that mean for you?

Look at these samples provided by the PPA, and see how a professional photographer can take control of everyday situations and turn them into amazing photo opportunities!
