Wedding Photography - Hands-On Training

  • Jun 7, 2014 · 1:00 PM

To many photographers, wedding photography is a daunting task and they quite frequently shy away from taking such assignments. However, let us face it; wedding photography is the darling of all photography assignments. Aside from being part of the most beautiful day in couple's life and for better or worse forever part of their memory of their big day. The rewards in terms of satisfaction, excitement, creativity, and monetary compensation are very high.

It is however extremely difficult for new photographers to join the elite club of wedding photographers simply because getting into the club is the typical catch 22. One needs to have the experience and confidence to get into the club. However, no one takes a chance to hire inexperience photographer that is unsure of herself or himself for the job on their most significant day.

This is where this opportunity presented here comes very handy. I have been retained by a couple to shoot their wedding at a major venue in New Jersey on June 7, 2014. I have negotiated to bring trainees and/or associates to the wedding to learn and assist. Such individuals will be working closely with the main photographer to photograph the wedding from the beginning to end. They will be guided on how to take preparation photos, ceremony photos, cocktail and reception party photos, candid photos as well as studio formal portrait photos. That is correct; we will be setting up a mobile studio at the venue to achieve that end.

This experience very rarely comes by if any at all. And, if it ever presents itself to a new photographer, it comes with a large price tag attached and lots of limitations.

The participants will receive two hours free orientation training  about two days before the day of the wedding. They will either be provided with cameras, and flashes, or if their equipment is considered suitable, will be allowed to use it at the party.

Only two slots are available.

    Although I have photographed weddings and other social events. Based upon my experience I firmly believe that wedding photography has provided me with skills that I can and I do use in many other areas of photography and video. Photographing a wedding can be terrifying as well as creative and exilerating .
    I am looking forward to attending this event.
