Dear Photographer: How Important is My Artist Statement?

How important is my artist statement and bio and what do I really need to include? I’m not a writer and did not go to art school and I’ve been struggling with this for months. I’ve been thinking of hiring someone to write it for me. Is this done regularly and are there people out there that specialize in artist statements for photographers? —Anonymous
