Sponsored Post | Bidvine for Photographers

Depending on the circles you move in one Tweet or Facebook status asking for advice or services can result in multiple responses but other times it's tumbleweed. Bidvine is a fantastic resource to help you find all manner of professionals from plumbers to personal trainers in your local area with a few simple online steps. I was offered the opportunity to test Bidvine and find out just how easy it was to obtain a quote from the professional services on offer and can share my thoughts with you today.

I decided to use Bidvine to investigate photographers in my local area with a view to using the images on Florence and Mary. It's something I've been pondering for some time in lieu of an 'instagram husband' and whilst my friends do a sterling job of producing some images for use on these pages I acknowledge they are not competing with some of the images seen on others blogs; it's not escaped my notice that many fashion bloggers are hiring photographers to help create their imagery and I was keen to explore doing the same.

To get started you type in the service you need, in my case 'portrait photography' and your post code so that local professionals can be sourced for quotes. A series of questions based on your request are asked; what type of portrait, where will the photographs be taken, what style of photography would you like, how would you like to receive images and whether you require the photographer to travel to you or you can travel to them.

All the questions you are asked have a drop down list of options so the process is very quick and ensures that your quotes will be received based on everything you need and avoiding further back and forth or miscommunication.

You will need to create an account whether by email, Facebook or Google+ and will be advised that you will your quotes shortly, in my case I was advised three days time. In face within the hour I had received two responses with differing quotes based on my budget and photographers looking to engage.

I was really impressed with the speed of the responses and how easy it was to use Bidvine, and certainly in the instance of a photographer which is somewhere I wouldn't know where to start looking locally for this type of project. I'll definitely be sourcing other services via Bidvine in the future and will be exploring the photography aspect further in the new year.

If you are looking to hire photographers or any professional service do check Bidvine as I'm sure you'll find what you need.

  3. I tried Bidvine too and was really impressed. There are so many services and the all of the quotes I received were in my price range. I often find companies try to push your budget up, but Bidvine make sure that doesn't happen. Xx
