Steve Winslow and Sophie Lane have built rewarding careers by successfully photographing countless weddings together. Join them for a behind-the-scenes education on working as a professional wedding photographer.
Winslow and Lane learned early on that building a business means building relationships. Throughout the week, they encourage you to incorporate this ethic into your own business. Classroom lectures cover equipment, business and marketing, working with second shooters, and strategies for photographing weddings out of your local area. Winslow and Lane examine the importance of self-promotion through web and print, and offer key tips for working effectively with clients. Location shoots throughout the week mimic actual weddings and teach you the finer points of engagement shoots, photographing bridal parties, wedding portraits, reception details, and posing a bride during a formal portrait. Post-shoot exercises hone your digital workflow and show you how to streamline posting web galleries, delivering prints, and accepting payment. All of this, plus instructor critiques throughout the week, will leave you primed and ready to tackle your own wedding shoots.
