Guidelines To Hiring A Professional Videographer
Professional video taping services not only preserve and document your special event as an everlasting historical account, but also allow you to see the moments you were too busy to experience at the time.
THE FOLLOWING ARE GUIDELINES TO SELECT A PROFESSIONAL VIDEOGRAPHER:
They should have a business license and insurance, providing you an avenue of recourse.
You should have a contract, which confirms the video package you selected, that includes the price and amount of deposit. Make sure the package takes into account enough hours to cover your entire wedding and reception so you won't be billed for overtime charges. Be aware of hidden charges such as: Microphone rentals, video projection expenses, assistant camera person costs, mileage, editing fees, additional tapes, extra charges for music and titling. Confirm the date, time, appropriate attire to be worn, names of the camera operators and the number of cameras being used.
Is this a part time or a full time job? This is a professional business, and therefore you should hire a full time videographer with the experience, professional grade equipment, in addition to adequate time to edit and return your completed video to you.
Have they shot an event at your selected location previously? Will they survey the location prior to the video shoot for the best angles, as well as, to remain unobtrusive during your affair?
Affiliations: A professional videographer will be associated with organizations such as WEVA-Wedding Event Videographers Association, etc., so they can unite with other professionals in their field and attend training seminars to improve their craft.
A professional videographer should be able to provide you with a portfolio of previous clients that can assure you of the quality and style of their work. In addition to other industry professionals such as photographers, florists, and DJís who can vouch for their professionalism and skill.
In this technological day and age it is rare if a professional videographer does not have a web-site. If a videographer has a web-site but does not list their prices, consider that their prices may change at will. In addition, if a videographer is more interested in addressing the type of equipment they use as opposed to finding out about you and your event be wary.
