Do you deliver every image you take?

I’ll answer your question with another question! Do you really need 20 pictures of Aunt Karen blinking? The truth is, every photographer takes shots that are too blurred, blocked, dark or duplicated. Those shots are important because they lead up to the select few, but they are not worth my time or yours.

Please, PLEASE never hire a photographer because you like the outrageously high number of shots they deliver. I am much more deliberate with my framing, taking the necessary time to approach each unique situation. This results in me ending up with less shots than someone who sets it on burst and goes to town, but you’re hiring me because you want quality – not excessive quantity.
