Give Your Modeling/Acting Career a New Lease of Life Without Stretching Your Budget!!

Posted on March 13, 2009. Filed under: 1, Hiring Photographers | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |

An attractive photograph portfolio is essential for all upcoming models and actors. A photo shoot done by an amateur or an unprofessional person can end up spoiling a budding career. A portfolio made by an experienced professional can, on the other hand, prove to be quite expensive. Although it is impossible to compromise on the type of photographer you need to hire to get the perfect portfolio made, it is possible to look for expert professionals whose charges are within your budget. The search for such a professional could prove to be harrowing and require substantial investment of time and effort.

You can, however, ease the search for a professional with the help of the MiNeeds site. With MiNeeds, it is the professionals who seek you out, instead of it being the other way around. The end result is that you not only save on time and effort, but also on cost as the professionals are prompted to bid competitively for your business. Take the example of the customer in Los Angeles, California, who wanted still photographs of his daughter taken in 5 different looks by a professional. However, he had a specific budget and the professionals he had contacted were asking for much more than he could afford. So, he turned to MiNeeds and posted his requirement along with the estimated budget and the preferred start date. The moment his need was posted, MiNeeds contacted all the professionals in his area and prompted them to submit their competitive estimates in order to win the business. Within a few days, he received responses from 4 professionals, from which he could select the one that best met his overall criteria.

You can also simplify the search for a professional the next time you want to hire a photographer. You can either scan through the list of Seattle Photographers and contact the professional who fits your bill or simply post your needs and wait for the bids to pour in!!

MiNeeds immediately notified the professionals in his area of the need and prompted them to submit their competitive estimates. He ended up receiving 7 bids from local professionals that saw his need and offered the service he was looking for. The best part was that he ended up paying much less than the upper limit of his estimated budget.

Decisions are hard to make, especially if you have to find out the service price wanted by each professional in your area. With the help of MiNeeds, you end up saving money, effort and aggravation.

Take the Headaches Out of Event Planning

Posted on August 12, 2008. Filed under: Hiring Photographers | Tags: , , , , , , |

Have you ever planned an event, such as a wedding, graduation party or even a huge surprise anniversary celebration? If so, I feel for you and your bank account. If not, you can imagine the headaches associated with the planning, especially when money actually is an object and you are forced to stick to a specified budget. By the time you figure out where to get the cake from, whom to hire for a DJ, and finally deciding on the most appropriate decorations for the party location, you tend to be mentally exhausted. And when you start adding all of the services up, your wallet gasps as you begin to regret ever thinking of the whole idea in the first place.

Don’t fall into those regretful and remorseful feelings. Remember, this is supposed to be a happy occasion worth celebrating, right? One of our customers in the Seattle area had decided to hire an event photographer to celebrate their grandmother’s birthday and capture all of the family fun on a picture CDRather than spending a ridiculous amount of time searching for a photographer, they decided to post their need here at MiNeeds. The customer wasn’t too sure about how much they could fork over, so they put in a small statement explaining that they weren’t looking to spend a lot of money. They also were able to fit in the description area that they were merely looking for the images to be put onto a CD, making it known that they were not interested in any prints or fancy presentation booklets full of expensive options at that moment.

When all was said and done, they received 8 bids from photographers in their area that offer the services they were looking for, giving them a good variety to choose from. Having more than one or two pricing options is a great way to guaranty you are going to save some money. By allowing their needs to be competitively bid at MiNeeds at their estimated budget, they not only were able to pick a price that they felt comfortable with, but also saved on the hassle of having to call up dozens of photographers out of the blue only to find out they either don’t offer the desired services or give you a high estimate in the hopes that you end up saying yes.
