How to differentiate between experienced and inexperienced videographer?

Videography is the best way to capture moments, emotions, actions and sentiments that you value the most in your life. What better than capturing all these feelings on your wedding day? Make it a memorable one by hiring someone who has expertise in this field. Don’t ruin the best day of your life by hiring someone who is new to the field or doesn’t have prior experience in capturing videos at weddings.

Professional videographerOne main reason for not hiring a pro and going for an amateur can be that you want to save money. Another reason is that you were unable to hire a photographer days before the occasion and now suddenly you have no other option but to go with a beginner.

How to differentiate between experienced and inexperienced videographer?

There are a number of reasons that may not allow you to hire the best wedding videographer Dubai but below are some of the points that will enable you to differentiate between the professional and a beginner in the field.

Change of settings

Not always but there are occasions when pros demand a change of settings before capturing pictures or videos. This shows the experience, knowledge and confidence of the videographer that he/she is able to figure out that one specific setting may not look good through the lens of the camera. Beginners just move with the flow and will never demand a change of settings.

Different angles and poses

He/she will also ask the bride, groom, guests and other people to show various poses as to capture them in a way that has never been done before. Amateur videographers aren’t aware of the technicalities and just shoot with no angles and pose to talk about.


An experienced videographer will always be loaded with accessories and will use them when the need comes. He/she will also have different types of lenses to get the most out of different situations like night time shooting, outdoor shooting, indoors and in murky conditions. On the other hand, the inexperienced shooter may not have all the necessary accessories like the camera cover, a hanging strap and a tripod stand etc.

Even if the newbie has it, he/she may not be able to use it in the right manner and will shoot everything in one way.
