Videographers?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of any videographers who charge $1000 or less. I'm on a budget but feel as if it may be a good idea to capture some moments on camera since every brides says the day goes by so fast.

I wanted to bring this topic back to life...I'm looking for a recommendation on videographers...I'm open on price but wouldn't turn down a good deal. Quality is a huge factor for me. Thanks in advance.

Hey Guys!

 

One thing you may want to consider is not limiting yourself to a local Cinematographer.

 

I would recommend you look around online for someone that offers what you truly want and inquire about travel.

 

You never know what they may offer you in terms of pricing until you ask ;-)

That's a good point but it seems like you would get the best deal from a local videographer unless you want to go with someone you know and are willing to pay accommodations and other fees.

I definitely see your point...but I guess my problem is how can you really tell what quality is better than another...or do you just pick something that looks similar to what you want.

 

For instance...how would someone know if they're getting a great deal. I don't want to always correlate higher price with better quality. I'm sure there a some great videographers who run specials or have packages that better than a la carte.

Thats a great question. Just like photography every videographer has a certain style that is reflected by their work. I would defiantly recommend picking something that you want. It's really a difference if you want to have something you want to watch over and over or rather then sit on the shelf somewhere.

 

With regards to price I would recommend emailing a bunch of videographers you like and go from there.

Wow! I can't thank you enough for the detailed response. I never would of imagined how to look for a videographer and I can say now that I am comfortable spending the extra money knowing what the alternative would lead to.

 

Is there a round about figure that states quality? For instance, what's higher end for videography? or are they pretty similar to photography? I know a great photographer (or great to me at least) and he charges on average about $7,000 for an entire day.

 

Well...thanks again~ That was a well written post/advice that I've bookmarked.

Their are certainly many great points that Alberto made however I would be cautious not to get to caught up on some of those details.

 

I would again recommend looking for someone who suits your style and what your looking for first.

 

With regards to a figure, it is pretty hard to say. You may find something you think looks great for $1000.00 however if you continue to look you'll see some videographers can chargers +$10,000.00.

 

It really comes down to watching videos and finding what you like.
