Tips for Pre Prom Photography

So your pre prom images are important to you? Well here are three tips that will help you have the best images of your dress, tuxedo, group, or any important images before you get to the dance.

#1: Hire A Professional! Yeah, I am not a fan of the do it yourself theory when it comes to this stuff. Being a professional photographer that focuses on school events I know what to look for. Find a photographer that is willing to spend an hour with you. If you have a group of people maybe you could split the fees.

#2: Take A Photo Class! If you decide to have a novice take your images make sure they take a class. Usually your local community college has a short 5 week class that will improve shooter’s skills tremendously. Prom is kinda like a wedding, YOLO! Make sure the person is skilled enough to capture some great images.

#3: Watch YouTube! There are plenty of skills videos on the site. Have your novice photographer view some videos and practice.

If your photos are important to you make sure you find a professional photog with a good reputation. If you decide to use a novice just let them know early enough the images you would like to have taken so they can practice.

Firefly Event Photography is high volume photography company that helps high school event sponsors add long term value to yearly dances, special events, and graduations.

Currently, professional photography for high schools lacks creativity, is costly, and includes a lengthy turnaround time. These issues have created a frustration from students, parents and sponsors that live in a world where photos are abundant and they don’t have to wait weeks to view and enjoy.

Our unique system and team of photographers provide multiple opportunities for every student to enjoy professional photography without excessive costs. By working with Firefly, our sponsors enjoy a worry free service knowing that the morning after the event their pictures will be ready to view, share and download for free, for life.

The reason I’m so committed to helping high schools is because I’m a former teacher, and I have witnessed the neglect by other photo companies toward schools that didn’t seem lucrative enough for them to show up to their events. I have also witnessed an almost hijacking of images unless the family was willing to pay a large sum of money for a product that didn’t improve even as the technology did.

But when schools bring in firefly, every student feels like the homecoming king, prom queen or the valedictorian.
