Why You Should Hire a Professional Commercial Photographer


Lots of people make the mistake of choosing that friend who ‘is pretty good at taking photos’ to shoot their commercial photography. Amateur photographers are unlikely to have the skills, equipment and experience necessary to provide you with the photographs that your business needs to stand out.

A lot more goes into taking artful photographs than simply having a camera. We think it’s great that people have access to technology that allows them to easily capture nice photos; However, when it comes to commercial photography, it is vital that you hire a professional. Here are 5 reasons why.

Quality photos guaranteed

When you invest in the services of a professional commercial photographer, you are guaranteeing yourself fantastic commercial photos. A professional photographer doesn’t just show up on the shooting day and capture photos aimlessly – they will work with you to create a stylistic vision for your photographs, and they will use their technical skills and experience to make this vision a reality.  

Capable of shooting in all conditions

Professional photographers are capable of shooting in all environmental conditions. They can shoot in natural lighting, fluorescent lighting and low lighting, and they are ready for whatever the shooting day brings – be it rain, hail or shine. Professional photographers have the expertise required to adjust their settings and shoot great photos in any conditions. At Porfyri, we have our own photography studio, which has been used by numerous businesses in order to capture and represent their products in the most professional manner possible.

The best equipment

Professional camera equipment costs tens of thousands of dollars… and it is unlikely that amateur photographers will have the right equipment for the job. Lights, light metres, lenses, tripods, filters, diffusers, spare batteries, memory cards, storage devices – professional photographers have everything they need to ensure great photos and the smooth running of the shoot. Instagram filters are great… but trust us, they don’t compare to professional-grade equipment.

The best editing software

Professional photographers also have access to the best post-production software, which they will use to make sure that your images are properly exposed, colour corrected, cropped effectively and retouched to perfection. When your completed photos are sent to you, you can rest assured that they will be polished, professional, high-quality and everything you wanted your commercial photographs to be.
