Let’s face it, choosing a Portrait Photographer in Perth can be confusing. After all, this is a service that you won’t even be able to see until after it is purchased. To make matters worse, there are literally hundreds of businesses offering portrait photography in WA: A quick look at the Perth telephone directory reveals more than 300 photographers.

Here are the top six things to look for:
Your portrait photographer needs to have a great portfolio of images that you really like. Make sure you talk to your Portrait Photographer about your favourite images in their portfolio. Every studio also has its own style – for example some only do black and white – make sure it is a style you really like. Here’s a small sample from our portfolio:
Choice of Artwork
To make your favourite photos come to life your photographer should be able to offer them in a range of sizes and finishes, such as canvas and albums. Producing these products well is quite a skill.
What happens if it rains? Your photographer should be able to offer studio photos, complete with professional lighting, as well as outdoor options. Private viewing facilities, including a large screen, are also a must.
You need to be able to meet your photographer or photography team before the shoot, and to get the best photos they need to be people you like and trust. A good Portrait Photographer should ask lots of questions about you and what you want.
You should only use a studio where members are members of an elite professional association. In Australia this is the AIPP. This ensures that your photographer is deemed a professional by his or her peers and adheres to a strict code of ethics.
Open about prices
It’s normal that your photographer won’t be able to give you prices on first contact, as price will depend on the quantity, size and finish of your products as well as the complexity of your shoot. However, you should be able to receive firm prices for particular products after your first meeting, and before your shoot.
At Cooper Studio we believe that we tick all of the above boxes. We’re always happy to meet you before your shoot and we’re really interested in what makes you tick, and how your photos can capture your true essence.
