How do you find that talented photographer who will capture your best features and who may even bring out a new side of you...

These days, a lot of people want to have great photos taken. This is especially true for portraits. People want to own portraits that are not only artistically taken and pleasant to look at but also those that capture real emotions as well as the best features of a person.

People need these portraits for various reasons. For one, great portraits can serve as wonderful and lasting memorabilia. These portraits can also be passed on from one generation to another and can even be great personal gifts not only to other relatives but also to friends. Portraits can also serve as great decorations in one’s home. When framed, these portraits can bring “life” to a home. Guests in one’s home can see the homeowner’s different facets through portraits. Also, while this may sound sad, great portraits can also help people remember a person who has passed away. Through great portraits, people can remember a friend, a family member or even a colleague and, more often than not, remember that person with only good and nice thoughts in mind. Moreover and while this may seem simple, having a portrait taken is also a nice and wonderful experience. After all, it is not everyday that you have your portrait taken by a professional.

However, how do you look for that skilled professional? How do you find that talented photographer who will capture your best features and who may even bring out a new side of you? How do you also find a good portrait photographer whom you will feel comfortable with?

This article will share some tips on how to find a good portrait photographer. Read on.

1. Ask for references. References are a great starting point. If a family member or a dear friend recently had his own portraiture experience, ask him about the experience as well as for references. Chances are, your friend has done his own research and has narrowed down his choices in terms of great portrait photographers. If your friend had a good experience with their photographer, then shortlist them for a future reference. Later on go and have a look at their website to see if their portfolio and style is to your taste.

2. Check local listings. See who the photographers in your area are and whose expertise includes portraiture. Also have a look at Google maps as a lot of information there could provide you with a lot of insights about the photographer. Read though photography client reviews and see what experiences they had during their professional portrait photography session.

3. Check online for great feedback. These days, a lot of people share their experience with portrait photographers online. Look for blogs or even online features about portrait photographers. Check the web for photographers whom a lot of people have had nice and easy experiences with. Be careful if you come across unpleasant reviews. There is a risk that you may also encounter the same thing so best to avoid this from the get-go. It’s not enough that a photographer has a nice looking studio or cheap rates. Feedback from previous clients must also count.

4. If you already have a shortlist of preferred portrait photographers, try to list the pros and cons for each and every photographer. Does he have a great idea as to where and when you can have your portrait taken? Does he have a studio? What are his professional affiliations? What type of camera does he use? What is his previous work like and how are the reviews about his work so far? Does his professional fee sound reasonable or do you think you can still get the same service from someone else but at a cheaper rate? Will the cheaper photographer provide me with the same quality of photographs? Answers to questions like these can help you decide the best portrait photographer to hire.

5. Lastly, and most importantly, trust a tried and tested London portrait photographer who has been in the business for years and who has been the top choice of many.
