In honor of my favorite reality show, tonight's signature cocktail is champagne!
Tonight we had a very special guest with us in the studio, our good friend and one of Detroit's premiere photographers, Robyn Robinson owner of Robyn Robinson Photography (check out her website here). Robyn has enjoyed the art of photography for most of her life and began taking photographs professionally over the past 3 years. With a keen eye and photojournalistic flair, Robyn seeks to bring out that which is seldom seen and often overlooked.
Robyn offered our listeners some great tips to remember when looking for a photographer for your next event:
- Make sure that they have a professional apprearance. If they come to the initial meeting in jeans and gym shoes it may give the impression that they don't take their business seriously.
- Look out for anyone who wants all the money up front (this is a major red flag). Most professional photographers will require a deposit to secure the date of your event, with staggered payments until the final products is delivered.
- A good photographer will be able to show you samples of his/her work. If they have no samples to show you then walk away.
- Also a look for certifications and memberships in professional organizations - this is a sign that they take their profession seriously. To professional organizations that they may belong to are Professional Professional Photographers of America (PPA), and Wedding & Portriat Photographers International (WPPI).
If you are in the Detroit area feel free to contact Robyn @ (248) 794-7010 or you can email her here.
Robyn thank you again for chatting with us tonight and we invite you to come back anytime to chat with us.
