Why should I hire you?

Have you ever thought about what you'd say in an elevator if a potential employer asked you, "Why should I hire you?"   I've recently thought about it and came up with five things.  Here they are:  

1.) Technical competence:   I was formerly an instructor at the Washington (DC) School of Photographer and is an expert on lighting, posing, and composition.  I'm a Certified Professional Photographer that holds a Master of Photography Degree and a Craftsman Degree from the Professional Photographers of America.  I'm currently an adjunct professor of photography at Bellevue University.  I was recently recognized as a platinum medalist at the International Photographic Competition and two of my four entries were selected by a panel of jurors to be in the top ten within their category.  What does all of this mean?   Bluntly put, it means that I know my stuff.  

2.) Buy local:  I use local companies to produce all of my prints because they provide the best quality, value, and customer service.  So when you buy a print from me, it will probably be made at a color lab within a relatively short driving distance from Omaha.  

3.)  Un-compromised quality:  Prior to the studio session I will meet with you to talk to you about your vision for the portrait session.  This will be a collaborative effort to help ensure that the final product meets your expectation.  If for some reason, it does not, I will re-shoot the session at no charge to you.   

4.) Treatment of customers with integrity and respect:  With so many photographers to choose from it is important to pick one you can trust.  I believe in being transparent with my customers.   I do not believe in or engage in "bait and switch" tactics. 

5.) Continuous learning:  To be the best at anything, you have to make continuous learning a priority.  I put aside at least a couple of weeks every year to learn from other photographers in the industry through the PPA and other organizations.
