We all know nowadays ANYBODY and EVERYBODY is a wedding photographer. It seems like a new Facebook fan page is being created every second. How can you carve out a niche in such a competitive market, to make a good living, all while being true to your authentic self? In my workshop, we will tackle this head on. The workshop is broken up into two full days. On day one we will concentrate on the art of photography. In the morning, we will talk about posing, finding the light, metering, different film stock, and how to tell a compelling story out of nothing. We will have a gorgeous bride & groom model in a well stylized bridal shoot. I will demonstrate how I look for light, composition, interacting with my subjects and making fine art images that will stand true test of time. On the second day, it’s all about business. Pricing, albums, social media, marketing, I will share everything I have learned in running a successful wedding photography business. You will walk away with practical strategies that can be implemented immediately into your own business. Expect to have lots of one-on-one time with myself. The workshop is purposely kept small & intimate in a judgement free environment. I want everybody to feel comfortable in asking all those embarrassing (but important!) questions you might not be comfortable in asking in a big group setting. Expect to have lots of fun in a well structured classroom setting. I can’t wait to meet you!
