Here are some known disadvantages to having a second shooter:
- Larger investment (packages are more expensive).
- The focus is usually on quantity rather than quality (no pun intended).
- A good photographer doesn't need to be in two places at once to capture the story (important and meaningful images) of the event or wedding.
- You don't need two photographers to captures a variety of different perspectives (this can be done just fine with one).
- Another photographer can sometimes cause confusions with the client and guests.
- Artistic and style inconsistencies between photographers.
- Receive more images (usually repetitive) that can be overwhelming for you to go through (clients usually don't want a ton of images).
- Liability with the trust of dependency with a second shooter to perform (sometimes they don't).
In conclusion, Gabriel is an independent photographer that deeply focuses on getting the best images possible for you without the worry of a second shooter! If it is truly necessary to have assistants and/or a second shooter (e.g. an event that is very large in scale or a wedding with an unusual large amount guests), then it can be provided.
First, equipment is inspected before the shoot to make sure everything is working properly and there is no damage. If something bad still does happen, however, that is why Gabriel uses extra and backup equipment just in case!
Second, only the best memory cards are used and only the fresh ones (not overused) are put back into the camera. Large memory cards are also used, so Gabriel never has to take out the cards from the slots until he gets back to his home studio, which prevents any cards from becoming lost or damaged. Additionally, the cameras used always have two memory card slots, so when an image is saved, it is automatically duplicated to a second memory card.
Third, images are immediately loaded from the camera to a very secure computer, then backed up twice to multiple encrypted hard drives that are stored in secure locations. Photos are stored permanently and are never deleted (unless it absolutely necessary).
With all of this prevention, please keep in mind that sometimes it is inevitable that bad things can happen, but let's just say that Gabriel will do his best to make sure that never happens. And if it does, he will be prepared!
Note that reservation fees are non-refundable, so check to make sure a date change is available before you change your date/time. Otherwise Gabriel won't be able to photograph your event or session, and your reservation fee will not be refunded.
He doesn't specialize in doing videography related work anymore (currently focuses only on photography), but if you have any questions, feel free to contact him!
