Pictures: This is why you should always pay your photographer

They do say you get what you pay for, the Zaring family had to learn the hard way not to cut corners when it comes to hiring the services of a photographer.

It seems of the many careers out there, working in the creative industry might be one of the hardest jobs out there, family, friends and clients think they can just get services for free or after paying next to nothing.

For some reason it eludes them that photography and film industry gear is very expensive, going into the thousands of dollars for a basic kit plus the years spent in training to be a professional, the list goes on.

The Zaring family hired a ‘Professional’ photographer for a family photo shoot  for $250, and below are the results, and let these results inspire you tomake the right decisions when you hire your next photographer. Enjoy!
