Training for wedding photographers

This week saw the first of my two day wedding photography workshops take place at Hazlewood Castle near York. Gathering together on Tuesday morning for day one, were ten photographers varying in experience from full time professionals to those just on the verge of starting a career in wedding photography.

Although not particularly kind the weather atleast allowed us outside for some photographs of models Gabriel and Vivienne. Although you can’t recreate the pressure and time constraints of a real wedding day in a training environment like the workshop, it did give all the attendees an experience in wedding photography when the weather  is not at it’s best. During the day’s photo shoot we used various parts of Hazlewood Castle as backdrops both inside and out, and with a mixture of natural light, flash, video light and off camera flash to create different results that could be achieved in a real wedding environment including a number of images after dark.

Wednesday was the day of theory so following a review of the previous day’s photographs we looked at how through streamlined workflow, targeted marketing and online galleries you can attract, shoot and sell eighty weddings per year with virtually spend on marketing.
