As a busy photographer, the time to edit can easily get away from you. Whether it’s weddings, engagements, or product shoots you have in the pipeline, the backlog of editing can become overwhelming. Outsourcing photo editing can be a great solution to help alleviate some of your work load and allow you to focus on other aspects of running your business such as finding clients or marketing.
One of the most important things to consider when hiring a company or individual for retouching is their ability to match your style. This is something that often takes experience and training to do well, and not every photo editor will be able to do this. It’s best to ask potential contractors for samples of their previous work that you can review before making a decision.
Another thing to look for is their turnaround time. This is important because the faster you can get photos to your client, the happier they will be and more likely to purchase from you again or recommend you to their friends.
When comparing services, it’s also important to find out how much an hour their work is worth. This will give you a good idea of what to expect in terms of pricing. If a service is too cheap, they may not be able to deliver high-quality images in a timely manner. Also, be sure to look for a company that specializes in your type of photography. For example, Pixelz specializes in e-commerce and product images while other companies may try to cover all of these markets which can result in inconsistent results and slower turnaround times.
