Day One: The Business of Weddings
This day is focussed on teaching you how to set-up and run a leading wedding photography business. Among the many topics looked at we’ll identify your vision, exploring your market and setting out strategies and goals. You will be equipped with a number of marketing and branding techniques to help promote your business. We will look at sourcing products and share innovative pricing tactics, as well as how to provide a unique customer experience to maximise profit and sales.
How to shoot great images will be the focus in the afternoon. Learn how to identify and shoot for great light and how to cope in a range of lighting situations. Composition is key and you will gain an understanding of how to creativity compose your wedding images.
The attendees are then invited to an informal dinner and evening of networking. After dinner you will learn how to shoot an engagement shoot with some models in the stunning Ebrington Square. A chance to get some portfolio images for your new business, so bring your camera as you’ll have time to direct the models and capture some of your own images. Benefit from my exclusive technique for shooting off camera flash images to wow your clients!
Day Two: Shooting Weddings
The morning will be spent on location at a country house hotel where you will have a chance to practise techniques learned the following day. During the shoot with model couples, you will be given hands-on training on how to direct your subject and find great light and backgrounds.
After the wedding shoot we will return to the studio to view some images from the shoot and talk about workflow. I will discuss my own workflow and show you how to use Photoshop and Lightroom to create professional grade images.
