The day aims to develop your skill set further in terms of running a wedding photography business and taking those “WOW!” Hero Wedding Photographs (Signature Photographs) your clients book you for.
It will introduce you to the use of on and off camera flash techniques as well as the use of other lighting sources. I’ll talk you through how my day is planned with emphasis on the groups and bridal portraits. We will chat about the camera kit I use regularly (i.e. what I’ve kept from all the kit I’ve bought!)I’ll also be going through my post-processing techniques for the Hero Wedding Photographs. So bring your laptops if you want to join in 🙂 I’ll talk about the business aspect of running a photography business, from contracts to insurance to websites to marketing & SEO.
We will be photographing inside a small badly lit church (even with the lights on it’s badly lit) as well as the inside of a four-star hotel. We will be outside photographing around the grounds of the hotel – wide open spaces, wooded areas, tree lined avenues, lakes, quaint bridges and ruined buildings. We will photograph in daylight, during dusk and at night time – so bring your flash kit. (If you don’t have any let me know when you book; there are always ways and means of using technology to get around this!)
I’ll also be using REAL people as subjects; not models so you will learn how to talk / communicate with your clients and direct people who know nothing about posing.
We will be going through album design for real clients and I will have a wide selection of sample albums around for you to look through.
