Senior Portrait Blog / Friday Favorites

Some times people forget that we provide Cap & Gown photos for seniors.  These are mainly done in the spring of your graduation year (once you have received your cap & gown from the school.)  People don't usually buy a ton of these photos, just a few for keepsakes and wallets for the thank-you cards for their graduation gifts.  Normally this session is $30 here at the studio, but if you book from now until May 11th, the session will be free.  Simply mention thos blog posting!

Happy Graduation!

Senior Portrait Blog / Looking for Feedback

We are asking you all, our customers, to give us feedback on senior portraits.  We want your honest opinions about what we offer.  Posing.  Style.  Trends.  Packages.  Products...  What could we do different?  What could we do better?  What are we doing right?  (and anything else you want us to know!)

We have made many changes over the past few years to keep abreast of all of the digital trends that our customers were experiencing, but still kept in mind what we needed or had to do to thrive as a business in these slow economic times.  This year has been a little different for us because we are focusing most of our time here at the studio marketing solely to seniors and prospective brides.  This means that we want to perfect everything for the most important people in our business.  YOU! 

Please, feel free to email us with your comments.  sales@lynnbrownphotography.com

Your thoughts will be rewarded with $15 in photobucks to use towards your senior portraits.  Thanks ahead of time to those who will take the time to help us grow!

Senior Portrait Blog / Beware of the Fauxtographers

Let's face it.  With digital cameras these days, everyone calls themselves a photographer.  You can search "professional photographers in Dacula, GA" in the Google search bar and get over 100,00 results of people who call themselves professional photographers within a 10-mile radius of your home.  So how do you decide on the professional photographer for your portraits?

One thing to think about is education.  There are many organizations out there that professional photographers are members of.  The memberships are a sort of "status quo" for photographers, or the "who's who of professional photography."  Organizations like Professional Photographers of America (PPA), or Southeastern Professional Photographers of America (SEPPA,) give photographers the extra education and training they need to stay current in their profession.  Photographers earn merits through photography competition.  What does this mean for you?  It means you are using the BEST OF THE BEST in the photography world.

Another thing to think about is the reason you are hiring a photographer.  You hire a photographer because you love their work and want them to create a piece of artwork for your home.  It may be nice to have back-up files of the images that you order (just in case you need them,) however, you hired a professional to give you beautiful canvas prints, stunning collage albums, and any other decorative items for your home.  This is why you will find that most professional photographers will not simply sell their files to you.  In fact, we actually have clients who bring in cd's that other photographers burned for them.  They ask us to digitally master and correct their images, and then they order prints and albums from us because they know that the quality is far superior than anywhere else that they can take their cd.  Besides...is a cd a piece of art?   I mean REALLY... I would love to hang a cd on my wall to showcase what I spent my hardearned money on!

So.  What is a FAUXTOGRAPHER?  Anyone with a camera; iPhone, Point and Shoot, Digital Rebel...calls themself a photographer these days.  They say things like, "I will shoot your photos for far less than the other photographers," or "Why go to a stuffy studio?"  Well, chances are they don't have a studio or professional equipment and they have no idea of the true costs of running a legit business.  These photographers usually simply hand you a cd.  I guess that is their form of art.  Sometimes you are lucky enough that they actually edit the photos and throw out the bad ones.  You might have a few de-saturated images (that they call vintage,) and then... well, you are left to your own demise to color-correct, retouch, and print your own images. Check out this blog.  It does a great job defining fauxtographers as well.  Check it out here.
