A lot of photographers scared to outsource their work, I completely understand. They think that another person won’t be able to maintain their style. But you will never know until you try. Yes, not everyone is going to be a
1. YOU CAN FOCUS ON IMPORTANT THINGS YOU LOVE
For most photographers editing is not the favorite part of their business. Most of the time it’s exhausting, and takes a lot of energy out of your life.
But you start this business because it was joyful and creative. And nowadays you find yourself behind the screen most of the time. It shouldn’t be like that.
Outsourcing will allow you to focus more on growing your business and shooting more wedding and sessions. You won’t be tied to your computer anymore. Adding one person to your team will allow you to focus on other things you love the most.
2. MORE TIME FOR YOUR FAMILY & FRIENDS
This business takes a lot of
When you allow yourself to outsource some parts of your business you’ll have more time to spend with friends and family, and more time for yourself (it may sound a little selfish, but you deserve it!).
3. YOU’LL GET CONSISTENT AND EXPECTED RESULTS
Working with your private editor you will be able to keep the control on the editing. Yes, you still have the control. Constant communication and honest feedbacks will give you the opportunity to guide your editor.
But if you’ll decide to outsource to the big editing/retouching agency you’ll never know who will edit you next wedding and how the images will look like. Your private photo editor will be able to learn your style and provide consistency.
4. YOU WILL HAVE TIME TO GROW AND IMPROVE YOUR BUSINESS
Outsourcing editing will allow you to do so many wonderful things. For example, you can work on your marketing and growing your social media presence.
Also, you may start new collaborations with your local businesses, book more clients or continue your education. There’s always room for improvement.
5. YOU’LL GET A PERSONAL EDITING ASSISTANT
Your private editor will be your personal editing assistant and help you to survive your busy seasons. I know that felling, when several couples waiting for you to edit their images. When you realize that you need to edit thousands photos in a short period of time, it cases you a lot of stress.
But with the help of your private editor you won’t feel that stress anymore. It also will improve your client experience. Your clients will be happy to receive their images in time or you can surprise them with fast delivery.
And to clarify the things, you don’t have to outsource each wedding you shoot. You may edit half, quarter or as many as you want by yourself.
If you feel that editing is taking up too much of your time and energy, consider outsourcing your editing. Whatsoever you choose: agency or private photo editor. Focus on your main goals. And let your editor to help you.
