How to choose your photographer.

As you start shopping for a photographer, you be overwhelmed with the number of photographers, what they offer, and their wide range of prices. How do you choose from so many options?
One of the first things a consumer should consider is what product they are  looking for? Wedding photography, senior pictures, portraits and family photos all have different needs and products. Some photographers offer albums, some offer copyrights, some offer editing and digital enhancements.
Albums are great if you want physical prints or something to put on your coffee table. Many wedding photography packages include albums, however their popularity is decreasing with digital media like Facebook and the I phone these days, but important if you want a photograph to hang on the wall. Copyrights are becoming more popular with senior portraits because consumers can create their own prints, post them on the web, make holiday cards or invitations with them, or put a photo on the phone to share with friends you run in to.
The second thing to consider is the photographers themselves. Look for reviews that say they are customer oriented, as some photographers think it is all about them. You really do want a photographer that listens to your ideas and will work with you to get the image you visualize in your head. Look for creative poses and a unique style, so the photos you receive will stand out from the competition. Customer service is very important as many great photographers do not deliver good customer service. Ask what the "turn around" time will be. Ask what camera equipment they use as many people who call themselves professional do not have the equipment for every photo situation.
The 3rd thing to consider is pricing. Photography prices vary between photographers, and the most expensive photographer is not necessarily the best. If you are on a tight budget, look at a copyright option so you can print your own photos and save big money! Tell the photographer your budget and ask what you can get for that amount.
M.J.B. Photography offers many options for photo products, delivers great personal service, owner and lead photographer Michael Becka is creative and offers packages to fit most budgets. Call 402-612-0932 to discuss your upcoming photography project or visit for more information.

Why digital photography stinks.

I have been a professional photographer for almost 20 years and learned my trade with film. The digital camera came along and I embraced the technology. It is amazing what you can do with a photo these days, and even consumer level cameras deliver photographs that are much higher quality than consumer level film cameras do. It may not be that the pictures are better, but what you can do with the picture after it is taken that we all find amazing.
When I was shooting film, one had to understand how a camera works, and know the different qualities of light. A professional photographer would pose the group to flatter the people with double chins or other challenges. The result was a flattering actual photograph, with a negative to make your reprints.Film has a quality that digital does not duplicate, as film has a character that is not perfect. The photograph was actually how the person looked, and it was up to the professional to capture the subject in the best light.
It has been interesting to observe what the consumer wants with their professional photographs these days. Brides want flawless skin, and thinner arms, business portrait clients may want a bald spot filled in, or wrinkles removed, or even a thinner face or no double chin. Senior picture customers may want braces removed, perfect complexion, a different background or props added to a photo. No one wants to look like themselves anymore.
It is not that I think there is no place for the digital camera, I believe there should be a place for film photography in the digital age. Film is timeless and true, it does not lie.
M.J.B. Photography offers film photography along with digital for wedding photography. One roll of film for bridal portraits and newlywed pictures leave you with photos that will be enjoyed for generations. Call Michael Becka, owner of M.J.B. Photography at 402-612-0932 to discuss your upcoming photography project offering professional film and digital results.

What should professional photography cost?

So you are looking for a photographer, and your choices are overwhelming. If you are looking for a wedding photographer some photographers charge $800.00 and some charge $4000.00, why is there such a big difference in pricing? The photo world has changed dramatically in the last few years as the digital camera has evolved to a point where anyone can feel like a professional.  The smart phone does a great job if you only need snapshots the size of your phone's screen, but does not compete with the high end cameras a professional photographer will use. It boils down to time equity, talent and overhead expenses. The expensive photographer may have too big of an ego, or he/she may shoot with the most expensive equipment and invest hundreds of hours in your wedding photography project. The cheaper photographer may shoot with amateur equipment  and invest little time, or may be very talented and building their resume so they can raise their prices later.
At M.J.B. Photography, we aim for clients who are looking for fantastic pictures at an affordable price. Shooting with professional Canon cameras and using their best lenses deliver amazing results, and by keeping  our overhead low, we keep our prices at fair market value. In short, we don't skimp on the quality of the photos, but provide fewer "bells and whistles" to provide you the product you want at am affordable rate.
