Avoiding Glamour Shots Complaints with Professional Quality Photos

When it comes to the special moments in life, one way to preserve the moment for eternity is to capture it in a quality photograph. With photography, as with so many other things, a person gets what he or she pays for. In order to receive the best quality memories, it makes sense to pay a little more for the expertise, knowledge and skill that is necessary to produce a top notch set of photos.

Wedding Photos
Wedding photos capture the look and feel of a once in a lifetime event. In many families, these treasures get passed on from one generation to the next and are displayed in a place of great honor in the home. Capturing these moments of beauty and love between the bride, groom and other members of the wedding party requires an exceptional eye for detail. Glamour Shots photographers have the experience and equipment to ensure that all wedding photos exceed the customer's highest expectations.

Senior Graduation Photos
Senior graduation photos mark a significant rite-of-passage for the student and his or her family. Not only will the photo be included in yearbooks, but it will also be shared among family and friends and looked back upon for decades. From head shots and posed shots, getting the best quality of photograph will give the student something to look back upon and smile about for many years to come.

Special Life Events
There are many special life events that call for a quality photographer. Pregnancy photos, newborn photos, milestone birthdays and more all reflect a need for top quality memories. The value of these images is something that is beyond the ability to calculate, in the end.

When it comes to getting the best quality photos for the money, Glamour Shots is the place to go. Their photographers are skilled, experienced and dedicated to total customer satisfaction, resulting in few Glamour Shots complaints. When it comes time to record life's most precious events and memories, it makes sense to get the best level of quality that fits your budget.

Glamour Shots' Tips for Avoiding Amateur and Scam Photographers

Photography is a skill that not everyone who picks up a camera can master. The difference between amateur and professional photography is wide, and the recent migration from photochemical to digital photography and processing has widened, not closed, that gap. Because the equipment is now so simple to use, amateurs can take easier and often improved amateur pictures, but make no mistake: entrusting your special day or memory to anyone but an experienced professional is asking for disappointment and regret.

At Glamour Shots, scam stories are shared with their professional staff all too often. A family member or friend "who loves taking pictures" offers to shoot an event or take senior pictures for free or at a fraction of the cost of a reliable professional photographer. By the time the proofs are chosen -- if they're even offered -- and printed, it's too late to go back and fix it. Another well-meaning photographer has ruined a "client's" experience.

And that's not even the worst of it. Scam victims often complain of being ripped off by a "professional" photographer who overcharged, underperformed, or even faked their website with photos from other places on the Web!

While the professionals at Glamour Shots can't change what happened at the hands of an unscrupulous person, they can help wipe the slate clean with a fully professional, dependable photo shoot experience.  From the initial appointment through checking the proofs and all the way to the delivery of keepsake quality, frame-ready photographs that turn out just as you always envisioned them, Glamour Shots delivers quality.

They also have advice to avoid scam artists. When checking out a photographer on the Web, see if a Google search of their website photos reveals that they existed elsewhere on the Internet before being used for their site. A search for the pictures from a Glamour Shots location will show that all pictures are originals created for their clients. Glamour Shots recommends that a professional photographer always be contracted for your most special memories and the easiest way to do that is to contact them. With their reputation for excellence, reliability, and hiring only the best photographers, the company proves itself trustworthy over and over again.

Keep an Eye on Glamour Shots Social Media Pages for Deals

Paying full price for a photo shoot and prints can seem like a Glamour Shots scam if you discover later that a special deal was available. However, it's easy to make the most of a sitting when you keep up with current offers through social media. Lots of businesses use social networks to provide special incentives to customers, and following Glamour Shots is the first step towards making sure that you never miss one of our hot deals for loyal followers.

Social media has challenged us to think outside of the box as we look for ways to cater to the needs and budgets of our clients, and we constantly include tips for great photo shoots (in addition to deals) on our pages.

Glamour Shots scam companies may try to generate similar interest, but their special deals will hold little value if the resulting images are poor.

We keep things interesting for our customers by continually updating our product options. While portraits are one of the main products that we offer, we produce fun options like phone cases and photo books as well.

Glamour Shots Prices Can Be Validated by Reviewing Sample Work

Modern technology has made it easy to turn a snapshot into a portrait package. In fact, many amateur photographers have capitalized on this concept, offering low pricing on portrait packages and taking advantage of easy access to printing discounts. However, there is definitely something to be said for a professional portrait. While the amateur may have some natural talent, the professional usually has technical training and high-quality equipment that allow for expert images to be produced.

Glamour Shots prices reflect the fact that a professional is at work. While these prices may seem higher than those available from some studios, it's helpful to review samples of a company's work to make a better evaluation of their potential.

Glamour Shots prices are based on different factors. The photo shoot is priced as an experience because, in addition to the portrait sitting, a client is also provided with a make-up and hair session to ensure that everything looks just right. Given the cosmetic and photographic elements of a session and the fact that the process is being handled by someone who is trained in the technical aspects of creating these portraits, the value is excellent.

Pricing on photos is based on sizing and quantity of prints and additional features like color effects may cost a little something more. By checking out these prices ahead of time, either online or by calling the location, customers can know exactly how much their photos and any extras will cost and can prepare for it.

The idea of a portrait package can conjure up memories of school pictures in the minds of many potential customers, and this can lead to a sense of uncertainty about quality and costs. Department store photo studios have added to this sense of angst over picture packages. The best way to avoid serious disappointment over pricing and picture quality is to ask a potential photographer to provide a portfolio for review -- an inability to do so is a good reason to walk away. A potential customer's ability to review sample work in advance will provide that person with a sense of confidence. Glamour Shots prices reflect this commitment to excellence, and sample work can be reviewed in the studios or online.

The quality of the work at Glamour Shots is what puts it above and beyond the competition. By reviewing the many pricing options and comparing them with the results, customers can not only see the value of what they are getting, but they can use these tools to plan ahead. There's just no way to lose!

Don't Feel Scammed! Keep Up-to-date on Special Glamour Shots Pricing

The word "scam" comes up a lot nowadays, especially now that consumers have created various complaint websites and awareness blogs to warn others of financial peril. However, the truth is that what many people call a scam is actually little more than a missed opportunity or an unwise decision. Now, that's certainly not to discredit those consumers who have actually been the victim of real scams or rip-offs, but it's important to take the facts into account before merely accepting the assessment of one angry individual.

Even a company like Glamour Shots, whose online reputation is impeccable, has had the word "scam" levied at them a few times. However, further investigation has revealed that these events were usually simple cases of customers not doing their homework before walking into their Glamour Shots appointment. In almost every instance, these customers failed to check the special online prices listed on the Glamour Shots' website, and they got the impression that they had paid too much for the services when the discounts were discovered later.

So, rather than a Glamour Shots scam, what actually happened was a Glamour Shots misunderstanding. Had the customer properly researched all of the pricing and special packages available to them, they could have saved money initially and avoided the horrible feeling that comes with realizing that one has paid too much for a good or service. And, while no amount of goodwill can reinstate the money spent on these services, it is important to note that Glamour Shots has gone to great lengths to contact these individuals and attempt to reconcile these misunderstandings. Sometimes, the company has had success and sometimes, they haven't.

So, before one is the victim of an imagined Glamour Shots scam, be sure to explore all of the pricing options and packages available -- it will save everyone who is involved a lot of time, effort and money down the road.
