Wedding Photography

 

For most photographers, the idea of shooting a wedding is just a little bit terrifying. This once-in-a-lifetime event carries high expectations, heavy levels of responsibility and pressure to produce something perfect in any situation. But there is more to the process of wedding photography than stress.

 

This workshop will teach you how to capture the images that matter and to tell stories worth remembering. You will have the freedom to tell those stories in your own style, making it infinitely more valuable than being “perfect”.

 

If you have ever desired to create meaningful images in your personal style as well as getting paid for it, then this workshop is for you.

 

Over four sessions we will work through the concepts of storytelling and the tips and techniques that will provide power to the narrative. We will roleplay a wedding day from start to finish, discuss lighting, relationships, workflows and backup systems as well as learn about the evolution of post-production.

 

There will be Q & A at the end of every session and at the end of the course, you will have the opportunity to participate in a 1-day on-location wedding shoot.

 

The world needs storytellers and you can bring your newly developed skills to every wedding shoot with confidence and creativity.

 

Wedding Photography is held on a Wednesday evening for 4 weeks.
