Hiring a Lakeland photography and videography team sounds like the easiest thing to do for your business. After all, you only need to look at who does the best photos and videos, right? Call them and then sign the contract? Unfortunately, it isn’t that easy.
There’s a lot of work involved in producing the kind of photos and videos you need. Therefore, you have to make sure that you’re hiring someone who knows what they’re doing and who can deliver the quality of photos and videos you want.
Have you covered similar events like this before?
Ask the team what kind of events they have covered before. If they have dealt with an event like yours before then you can expect them to know what to do during the actual shoot and event. It would be nice for the team not to be such a novice in covering an event like yours.
How much is the full package going to cost?
Budget restraint will push you to make decisions based on how much the services are. While it is always nice to avail of the full package, not everyone can afford it.
The next best thing for you to do is choose only the services you need and pay ala carte. However, the team might be willing to give you a discount or a freebie if you avail of the full package so ask anyway.
How much lead time do you need for the whole production process?
Production takes a lot of time so you need to ask the team how much time they need to make the photo album or the video you want.
This will give you a sense of when to expect it and also to schedule its showing accordingly if you’re going to use the video for commercial purposes.
Do I still need to worry about anything?
Do you still need to take care of anything? The script? The hiring of actors? A full package might mean you won’t have to do anything for the project and leave everything to the team but it is best to clear this issue out so you know what to expect.
Can you show me a copy of your business permit, tax ID, etc?
You might think this is none of your business but have you ever seen what happens to a business’ products and outputs when they get caught in tax fraud?
These products might be put in an injunction which means you won’t be able to use them for whatever purpose they may serve you.
