“I’m hoping that your likers might be able to help me – I am after a student photographer for my two son’s birthday parties. Its so hard to capture their birthdays when you are busy preparing the food or organising the games. We just don’t have the money to pay a professional but would love to have some good photos of the day. One is in May and the other in June. We are in Brisbane and I have already tried Gumtree – I have responded to ads but have not received any responses to my requests.¬†Are you able to help at all?” Do you know how to find a good student photographer?

  • Look up some on Facebook…. U can see their photos too n see if u like them

  • How did it turn out hope you were able to get one

  • you could ask a friend or relative to do it for you. or ask the local uni if they can recommend someone.

  • If the noticeboard doesn’t work out, you could also place a few line ad in the local newspaper wanted section.

  • Hope you managed to find one :)

  • I would place a notice up on the boards of universities & tafes. Theres bound to be people willing to help out

  • Have you tried contacting the local Tafe and Uni? They generally have noticeboards for stuff like this.

  • I would highly recommend gumtree because I have found a few things on there

  • Maybe an add on gumtree, and the local tafe..or high school even

  • Contact a TAFE, or even in Gumtree there are often photographers looking to build their portfolios.

  • TAFe students do an excellent job. Post it on your facebook page too.

  • As others have suggested, get in touch with QLD TAFE and enquire about student photographers (the newer students who are just as apt at photography would be cheaper to use). Another site that is good is http://www.serviceseeking.com.au/photography/Qld/Brisbane – you can compare quotes and prices with photographers available.

  • Putting your own ad in the local paper may have also been a good idea.

  • Agreed, on FB there are heaps of local opp shops and online “garage sale” pages look for ones in your local area and post in them, thats how i found a couple photographers to do some family photos :)

  • On FB alot of areas have a garage sale group or a feedback group and you can ask in both of these – also call the local schools
