Wedding photographers either work for themselves or join wedding studios. Recently, there are more and more wedding photographers choosing the route of joining wedding studios. Why is this so?
1. It is tough to manage everything yourself
As a freelance wedding photographer, you have to manage everything yourself – marketing, sales appointments, actual photo shoot, and the post-shoot editing. It can be really tiring and it will take a toll on the photographer. If the photographer feels tired, his work performance will be greatly affected and this is highly dangerous. He does not want to risk doing a poor job for his customers. Not only will it ruin the customers’ wedding, the wedding photographer’s reputation will also be affected in the long run too! On the contrary, wedding photographers who join wedding studios only have to concentrate on the actual photo shoots and sometimes also the post-shoot editing. As they are more passionate and specialized in the shooting, they will do their work more efficiently and feel less tired.
2. They can earn more joining wedding studios
Freelance wedding photographers secure much fewer wedding photography contracts than wedding studios. In the consumers’ eyes, wedding studios are much more reputable and reliable. Wedding photographers who join wedding studios such as Grandeur Wedding Studio are typically earning more than freelance wedding photographers. This is because the wedding photographers at Grandeur Wedding Studio are constantly kept busy at work. In fact, their schedules are packed with wedding photo shoots almost every day in the month. As they are highly utilized by the wedding studios, the wedding studios also reward them accordingly for their efforts so that the photographers will feel adequately compensated for their efforts. Comparing a scenario where one takes 100% of the profits out of a small pie and one who takes just 10% to 20% of the profits out of a much bigger pie, the latter option can be much more rewarding. It is no wonder that many people chooses the latter option.
