Photos from our latest Wedding Photography Workshop | July 2015

2017-07-14T14:52:20+00:00 By |Flash Photography, Hotshots, Wedding Photography|

Here is some feedback from our 5-Day Wedding Photography Workshop, which took place earlier this month. On day one and day two of the wedding photography course, we focused on the commercial and marketing side of wedding photography, including developing a personal style and other creative issues. On day 3 we had a shoot covering various basic as well as creative lighting techniques; from working with natural light to more elaborate flash and artificial lighting setups. On day 4-5 we covered digital workflow; from image selections to editing, and creating wedding albums. Our main focus is to establish consistency and accuracy without sacrificing creativity by using the latest and greatest editing software, presets and online services. The "wedding shoot" is really the highlight of the workshop and I would like to share a few techniques and images we shot during the wedding course:

My personal journey to becoming a wedding photographer

2017-07-14T15:18:03+00:00 By |A Photographer's Attitude, Wedding Photography|

My personal journey to becoming a wedding photographer. This is my story... I am entering my 5th year in the wedding photography business since I shot my very first wedding and I have been reflecting quite a bit on the journey past. If you had told me 5 years ago that I would be making a living of wedding photography today I would have laughed in your face and called you a loony. I can actually remember Danie telling me this on a DPC portrait session when I did my very first course with him 5 years ago (I was part of only his second class) and thinking man, this guy obviously feels he need to say this as I paid him for the course!

Express your vision using Flash!

In the On-Location Lighting workshop I teach our students that one of the 7 reasons to use flash is to express your vision. As photographers, light is the notes we use to compose a song. If you only know half the notes the song you create will be pretty limited in tone and originality. If you however know the full range of notes you can create a masterpiece! If we are able to recognize and make use of natural light as well as incorporate artificial light where needed we can truly express our vision and create our own masterpieces!
