How do you feel in the office when you don’t get along with your officemates? Don’t you feel constantly stressed out? That’s exactly how it feels when you don’t see eye to eye with your Lakeland videographer. If you have an event coming up, work on your relationship. Or at the very least, don’t choose a videographer who you cannot be friends with.
Why is it important to have a good relationship with your event videographer? If it’s your wedding, you want to be as comfortable as possible. If it’s your parents’ anniversary, you want to work with the videographer to be sure he captures all the tiny details of the party. If it’s a company event, all the more that the pressure is on you.
But how do you foster a good relationship with a Lakeland videographer? How can you get along with someone who, just a few seconds ago before you signed the contract, was a stranger? What can you do to warm up the relationship?
You don’t have to be close friends with the videographer, but there should be respect between you. Communicate your expectations. Make sure you agree on the terms of the contract, as well as the output that you need. When there are disagreements, reach out to the videographer. Make sure to use a calm and collected tone (no matter how annoyed you are). Even if you paying them, videographers need your respect and consideration.
That brings us to the next point: be considerate. Videographers can fall ill, too. They get exhausted, too. If they are not their usual perky selves, don’t blame it on them. Personal and professional things can affect one’s moods.
If you feel that they are not up to the job, talk to them about it. if they assure you that their jobs won’t be affected by whatever it is they are going through, take their word for it. When you signed that contract, you’re telling these videographers that “yes, I trust you will do your jobs well.”
If time permits, bond with your videographers. Ask them to grab a couple of beers. You will be surprised that most of them have never been invited by a client for some powwow. You’ll be even more surprised by the kind of stories they have about their industry. Once you’re over the barrier, there will be an instant connection. Your photos and videos will come out even better.
Sometimes, all it takes is a smile and courtesy to get along with your Lakeland videographer. It won’t cost you a dime to be respectful and kind, too.
