I’m just curious anonymous user?
As a buyer you are in a unique position on a forum of pho/fauxtographers.
Are you at liberty or have the desire to say what you do, what kind of photography you require (portrait, product, wedding, etc.) what you look for, whether you work with photographers directly and on site creatively. And if so what qualities do you look for in a photographer and their photography. Your typical end use. What you require in a contract as far as licensing, etc. And maybe even some success/failure annecdotes?
Just a theory. If you would rather not say anonymous user it would be perfectly understandable. But it would certainly give a unique perspective from the other end of the spectrum that is rare to have sometimes.
