Why it's Smart to Invest in an Experienced, Educated Photographer
These days, most of us carry a cellphone with a fairly decent camera, and take snapshots of our lives unfolding to post on social media. We're inundated with images every day. Because of this, well-made professional photography that stands out is more important than ever.
Cellphones are fine for everyday documentation; but no matter how good the camera, those snapshots can never compare to professionally created images made using professional cameras with the right settings, lenses and lighting, and expertly developed using the latest tools of the trade.
There aren't a lot of photographers who do what I do. Many photographers are still essentially taking snapshots with a fancy camera. But for those of us who practice photography as an art, there's so much more to good photography than pushing a button. In fact, pushing the button is one of the last parts of the equation.
Here are 5 reasons why investing in professional photography with a highly skilled, well-rounded photographer is important.
1. We Communicate Without Words
Whether human, animal, or inanimate object, good professional images communicate the subject's essence.
Well-made images help tell people who you are and what you're about.
When you invest in professional photography that captures you with insight, you're helping build trust and credibility with your viewers.
If your photo needs are personal, such as family portraits, you want images you'll cherish for a lifetime and pass down for generations.
If your photo needs are for business or career professionals, like headshots, environmental portraits or product photos, quality images can give you a competitive edge.
2. We're Experienced
Well-trained professional photographers have studied and practiced for years or decades learning how to create pleasing images.
We've taken countless courses and made countless images to better serve you and deliver satisfying results.
3. We Make You Look Good
We know how to photograph you in flattering ways, from facial features to body types and everything that makes you YOU.
We take everything into account, from your hair color, skintone and clothing, and ensure you'll complement and stand out from the background.

4. We Know Our Gear
We've invested countless $thousands into our cameras, lenses, lighting and accessories. We know what every button and dial do, and how to use them to best capture your images.
We don't let the camera make the decisions. We carefully assess the subjects and scene, and carefully dial in each setting to create the images we envision.
5. We're Artists
We're perpetual students who've learned much more than basic photography. We continually study composition, color theory, lighting, post processing and so much more to improve our skills and create images you'll love.
These are only a few reasons why good professional photography is important, and why it isn't cheap. For more information about investing in professional photography with Mara Robinson, click here.
