Glamour Shots' Tips for Avoiding Amateur and Scam Photographers

Photography is a skill that not everyone who picks up a camera can master. The difference between amateur and professional photography is wide, and the recent migration from photochemical to digital photography and processing has widened, not closed, that gap. Because the equipment is now so simple to use, amateurs can take easier and often improved amateur pictures, but make no mistake: entrusting your special day or memory to anyone but an experienced professional is asking for disappointment and regret.

At Glamour Shots, scam stories are shared with their professional staff all too often. A family member or friend "who loves taking pictures" offers to shoot an event or take senior pictures for free or at a fraction of the cost of a reliable professional photographer. By the time the proofs are chosen -- if they're even offered -- and printed, it's too late to go back and fix it. Another well-meaning photographer has ruined a "client's" experience.

And that's not even the worst of it. Scam victims often complain of being ripped off by a "professional" photographer who overcharged, underperformed, or even faked their website with photos from other places on the Web!

While the professionals at Glamour Shots can't change what happened at the hands of an unscrupulous person, they can help wipe the slate clean with a fully professional, dependable photo shoot experience.  From the initial appointment through checking the proofs and all the way to the delivery of keepsake quality, frame-ready photographs that turn out just as you always envisioned them, Glamour Shots delivers quality.

They also have advice to avoid scam artists. When checking out a photographer on the Web, see if a Google search of their website photos reveals that they existed elsewhere on the Internet before being used for their site. A search for the pictures from a Glamour Shots location will show that all pictures are originals created for their clients. Glamour Shots recommends that a professional photographer always be contracted for your most special memories and the easiest way to do that is to contact them. With their reputation for excellence, reliability, and hiring only the best photographers, the company proves itself trustworthy over and over again.
