I know a woman, who never had photography experience before, but she got a job in Portrait Innovations.?
Hi, I know a woman, no experience at all on photography, recently got a photographer job in Portrait Innovations. I wonder if they can maintain the quality of studio portrait. I know this company pretty big and growing, but I won't take picture there once I know the story. anyone got same feeling, where to find professional portrait photographers.

These box studios dont need someone with lots of photography experience, as they use digital camera's and computerized settings, to get the photos they need. Their photographers need to be able to sell higher priced sets, and follow a pose chart provided by the company.
