I’ve been doing workshops for a while and I’ve always enjoyed teaching. Sharing my knowledge with the new photographers has always been a passion of mine. Not to mention meeting other like minded photographers is always a good reminder why I got into the whole business of wedding photography to start with. Having been in this business for almost 5 years now (has it been that long??), you do lose some of the passion that we all once had in the beginning. The workshop is just a small reminder of just how great this wedding industry is! For the last Jeremy Chou Photography Wedding Photography Workshop on April 28th, 2014, we held it in Orange County, CA. The class was structured so we had about 6 hours of classroom time where I spoke on a variety of business topics for wedding photographers;
- Establishing a profitable business model.
- Must have poses for wedding photographers.
- Nailing the consultation.
- Differentiate your brand and stand out in a saturated market.
- Pricing to maximize profit.
- Upselling album & prints.
- Utilizing social media for free advertisement.
- Shooting with natural light.
Half of the wedding workshop attendees flew into Southern California from all over. We had attendees from San Francisco, Hawaii, Quebec and even Sweden! We had attendees who literally just picked up a camera few months ago to somebody who has been photographing for 10 years. I want to thank all of the attendees for making the necessary arrangement to come spend a day with me. I hope you all left with strategies ready to be implemented for your business. I can’t wait to see where you guys go from here! I also want to thanks the absolutely AMAZING vendors and models for putting the entire shoot together for the attendees. Especially Damaris Mia, the editor-in-chief of Le Magnifique who did an unbelievable job of creating this stylized shoot. My jaw literally dropped when I saw the setup!
