We had an amazing session, and you couldn’t wait to see the final images. You might have even texted me a "few" times ahead of the delivery schedule, anxiously wanting a sneak peek. So, I know you're excited to share those stunning images I captured on your social media platforms. You receive the final album with a request to tag your Photographer and then…. Crickets…. Images get posted with no mention of who created the amazing images. Yup, this is what breaks your Photographer’s heart. Hence me writing this on behalf of all professional Photographers.
Have you ever wondered WHY giving credit and tagging your Photographer is not just a courteous gesture but also a way to show gratitude, not to mention a super smart move? Here are the top 5 reasons why acknowledging your Photographer can make a world of difference.
1. CELEBRATING ARTISTRY:
Your Photographer is not just a clicker of buttons; they're a visual storyteller, an artist who crafts moments into timeless memories. By crediting them, you're not just acknowledging a service but celebrating their unique vision and creativity. Your friends and followers will appreciate the artistry behind the lens, and you'll be sharing a piece of genuine talent with the world.
2. BUILDING A LASTING RELATIONSHIP:
Every Photographer-client relationship is built on trust, collaboration, and mutual respect. Giving credit is a simple yet powerful way to nurture this bond. When you tag and mention your Photographer, you're not just recognizing their work, but also becoming an advocate for their skills. This strengthens the professional relationship, making them more likely to go the extra mile for you in the future.
3. HELPING SMALL BUSINESSES THRIVE:
Behind every great photo is a hardworking professional, often running a small business. Your shout-out on social media serves as a virtual thumbs-up, boosting their visibility and credibility. Small businesses thrive on word of mouth and positive recommendations. By giving credit, you contribute to the growth of your Photographer's business, enabling them to continue capturing beautiful moments for you and others.
4. SHOWCASING EXPERTISE TO YOUR NETWORK:
When you tag your Photographer, you're not just showcasing their talent to your followers; you're introducing them to your entire network. Folks, this is a BIG DEAL #giversgain - Your friends, family, and acquaintances may be looking for a skilled Photographer for their events or personal projects. Your endorsement could be the catalyst for someone else to discover and appreciate the Photographer's work.
5. ENSURING FUTURE OPPORTUNITIES:
Photographers rely on their portfolio and online presence to attract new clients and opportunities. By giving credit and tagging images, you contribute to their online footprint. This not only helps them attract new clients but also opens doors to potential collaborations and partnerships. Your support today could lead to more extraordinary moments captured by the same skilled hands in the future.
