Hiring a Professional Photographer

At first glance, it has never been so easy to hire a pro photographer – especially in a small city like Denton, Texas.

The truth is there really aren’t that many professional photographers still standing – in Denton, Dallas or the DFW Metroplex. There ARE a lot of people with digital cameras who call themselves professional photographers, but what really is the definition of a “professional photographer” today.

A professional photographer has a few things that separate them from those who call themselves professional photographers. Originally, a professional photographer had at least one of the following assets that qualified them for the profession:

  • An Education
  • Experience
  • Talent
  • Skills

Now? All that is required is a camera, and … well, not much else. If that is satisfactory for you, you should stop reading now.

So how do YOU KNOW who it is you are looking at hiring to represent your brand, your company, your startup, your small business, your dream or vision?

  • LOOK – at a photographer’s work, the work you find here
  • READ – who is the person behind the camera?
  • TALK – talk to the photographer! Speak about your needs, and listen for the┬áresponses that come with experience.

Along with the move to consolidate the two websites – moving (est. 1993) to, I will be taking the necessary steps at SHANNONDRAWE.COM to enable purchase of prints from this website. It may be another Pandora’s Box of hacking problems, but we have to give it a try, don’t we?

Well, if I could not get an image in the Texas Parks & Wildlife magazine’s cover story on Lake Ray Roberts, Texas, I figured I have a problem. Fortunately, they used one of my images on the cover and one on inside pages. The rest came from a TPWD staffer, which makes sense on a financial level.
