3. Know your budget.
Ask for best value / price
This is the first step in narrowing down your options for a professional photographer. When planning your budget, keep in mind the length of your event. Is it a four-hour cocktail party or a five-day conference? If you’re on a tight budget, consider hiring a friend or family hobbyist to photograph your event
4. Ask for equipment
In Barcelona, many photographers lack the proper equipment for large events and work with basic kits. A lot of the events are indoors and lots of action is taking place, therefore quality gear is needed. It costs more, but the investment shows in quality for the client. See my equipment here
5. Hire the photographer not the company
These days, most people have at least a portion of their portfolio on their website, which makes it super easy to review their past work. You can always ask if they have other work samples or a hard-copy portfolio to flip through if that makes you more comfortable. When looking at their portfolio, take note of the types of shots they take, ow well they photograph the event venues
, as well as how dynamic they can be in their photography.
Finally, it’s important that you feel a good chemistry between yourself and your photographer, since you will be working for the duration of your event.
