Why Invest In a Unit Stills Photographer?

iPhones have great cameras and entry-level digital cameras are reasonably priced. That doesn’t mean you’ll get professional quality marketing stills if you have just anybody take them. A professional unit stills photographer knows how to frame and capture key moments while navigating the set. 

Here are a few reasons why it’s worthwhile to hire a production stills photographer

  • Stills used for marketing can increase the lifespan of your production 
  • Iconic marketing materials can help improve your production’s profit 
  • You’ll avoid spending more money editing and fixing bad production stills 
  • Pulling screenshots from your actual production doesn’t allow for strategic framing and composition
