I received a call from a potential client today and I was actually very delighted that she had such a good list of questions for me before she would hire a photographer. She had done her homework and said that she wanted to be sure she was dealing with a professional business. Here are some of the questions she asked. 1. Do you have a business license? (yes – in Sandy Springs where my studio is) 2. Are you a corporation and in which state? (yes – Mark L. Anderson, LLC – Georgia – DBA Casual Elegance Photography®) 3. Do you have insurance? (yes – liability and loss of property) 4. When did you start the business? (2000) 5. Do you have a Website? – she was referred by a friend (yes – casualelegancephotography.com) 6. Can I meet with you ahead of the shoot and see your studio? (yes – I encourage that) 7. Do you have a Makeup Artist? (yes – I utilize the services of several in the area but work closely with 3 – all licensed estheticians) 8. Can I bring someone to the shoot with me? (YES – I highly encourage you to do that) 9. Will my photos be sold or used by you? ( NO! I do not use client images. If a client wants me to use an image I require them to sign an agreement for me to do so. I don’t even allow anyone other than the client to order prints or a CD) She had a bunch more questions but they were related to the process, the shoot, and the timing. As I said, I was delighted that she was taking the task of hiring a photographer so seriously and I gladly answered her questions. It made me very happy that I had followed all the right steps to build my business correctly. Visit our website to learn more about Casual Elegance Photography® and read our client testimonials.
