Start by discussing your expectations and photography needs with your photographer, including any props and styling requirements. Depending on the shoot, you might need a hair stylist and get your makeup done professionally. Arrive early to ensure you’re relaxed and so you can look your best during the photo session.
Your photographer will go through the poses or images you want to get and discuss the flow of the session. If you have several outfits with you, they can plan the order of the shots with a break to get changed. Your photographer may instruct or position you for different poses or expressions to get the best images.
Express photography sessions can be as quick as 5-10 minutes, but if you need a longer session, or multiple outfits and locations, it’s best to allow a couple of hours.
Find a photographer with a specialty that matches your photography needs. If you'll be doing photo shoots for your family, check if the Tasker has experience in family photography. Check credentials and read reviews from previous clients. On Airtasker, you can view reviews from the best-rated photographers around you.
Professional photographers offer professional results, thanks to professional memberships, training, equipment, and experience. Most professionals have a studio where they hold photo sessions. Amateur or hobby photographers are often less experienced, visit the locations of their clients for the shoot, or only practice photography as a side gig.
Planning your trip can already be hassling and time-consuming. Hiring a local photographer means you can find one when you've arrived at your destination instead of booking before your flight! When you hire a local photographer, you're getting someone skilled and experienced in working within your area of choice. That means they know where the best photo spots are and when is the best time to go for optimum lighting and fewer crowds.

What does a professional photography service include?
Whether you’ve got a special occasion coming up or just want to capture a moment in time, hiring a photographer means you can relax knowing it’s all taken care of. From product photography and commercial photography to family and maternity photo shoots, there's nothing better than trusting experienced photographers in your area to help capture the special moments in your life and give photos that you can cherish. The inclusions and what happens during your photography session will depend on the type of services you need:
Special occasion photography
Professional photography services are a non-negotiable for special occasions like weddings, parties, and events these days. Your photographer will discuss the ins and outs of your event with you ahead of time to make sure they’re in the right place at the right time. They’ll set up their equipment before guests arrive and capture all the important moments, leaving you free to enjoy the day and have those special photos for keepsakes.
Need to find a family photographer or baby photographer near you? Portraits can become treasured memories that show how people have changed and grown over time. They can even make wonderful family gifts for loved ones. You can even find an experienced pet photographer to capture your pets’ portraits or include them in the family photo. Your portrait photographer will ensure everyone is posed and clearly visible, then take a variety of shots.
Fashion and product photography
A specialist fashion photographer or product photographer near you can help with the right lighting, camera, and know-how of taking pictures that represent your brand or products - a better option than relying on stock photos when posting on social media. They’ll help style, arrange, and edit your images to help you stand out from the crowd, grow your following, and sell more products.
Aerial photography has revolutionized photography and video footage - these days you can get amazing group photos, property shots, and aerial views of just about anything. Whether you’re in real estate, construction, or tourism… or you’re planning your wedding, a pro drone photographer will use a high-quality drone camera to expertly capture the perfect aerial shot.
Travel and vacation photography
Hiring a professional to photograph your vacation will let you have fun without worrying wether you've documented the moment or not. Some people opt to hire a local photographer to travel with them. However, since you'll be covering their expenses too, it's not very practical if you're on a budget. An alternative is to hire a local photographer when you land at your destination. As locals, they'll know the best places to take pictures. They can act as your guide as well.
Photo editing and retouching
Photo editing is where the magic happens, but it can be time-consuming if you’re not a pro. A photo editor can help with retouching photos from your photo shoots, photoshopping out an ex from your family photos, or turning an average photo into a masterpiece with the right lighting adjustments. They’ll use programs like Photoshop and Lightroom to make the best photos from your photoshoot even better.
