I love taking photos, it’s a big passion of mine. But getting decent photos of the four of us together can be challenging to say the least. After setting up my camera on the tripod, sorting out the timer and then all running back into our positions it often doesn’t turn out how you hoped it would and you end up with something that looks a little like this…
So I’ve been looking at the possibility of hiring a portrait photography to take some family photos of us. I was recently introduced to a website called Bidvine, where you can hire trusted local professionals, so I decided to have a look on there.
The website is really easy to use. You begin by typing in what you are looking for, so in my case ‘Children Portrait Photography in Sheffield‘ and Bidvine will then generate some questions to get a better idea of what you are looking for.
We ask you a few questions specific to the type of service that you need help with. This helps pros understand what you need and give a more accurate bid estimate.
I was asked questions about the number of children to be included in the photos, how old the kids are and where we would like the photos to be taken etc. It only took me a couple of minutes to go through all the questions and that was it, my request was submitted.
Next I simply sat back and waited for bids to start coming in. Bidvine send your job request to trusted local professionals who can help with what you need done. Within a few hours I had received my first bid at £40 which I though was a great price! The photographer provided me with lots of information, available dates and examples of her work.
Bidvine allows you to compare up to five different quotes and view company profiles and reviews to find the best professional for you. After the job has been done I can leave a review of the service, as of course others rely on reviews to make their decisions.
I think Bidvine is a brilliant idea and so easy to use. I love that it is free and it can be used to find professionals for a variety of different jobs such as decorating, cleaning, piano lessons etc. Pretty much any service you require, it’s covered. I would definitely recommend Bidvine and will be using it again myself in the future.
What do you think to Bidvine? Have you used it before?
Thanks for reading.
