Delivered by an experienced wedding and portrait photographer, this course has been designed to bring out your creative side in a professional manner and to meet the expectations and needs of a demanding client.

To attend this course you must have some familiarity with a photo manipulating program, preferably Adobe Photoshop, and own your own digital camera.

You will work outside with the models, whatever the weather, so that you can experience the pressure of working in less than ideal conditions.

The course will include:

  • essentials of wedding photography in real life
  • time management and planning with the couple
  • seeing light and different types of light
  • demonstrations with models
  • how to pose
  • introduction to studio photography
  • how to light a bride, and how to light groups
  • posing and arranging groups
  • how to identify, light and compose dynamically
  • practice sessions with models
  • use of studio equipment in a non-studio environment
  • post production and good editing principles
  • image manipulation and retouching
  • accounts, filing and office procedures.

What will you gain?

By the end of the course you will have skills to make exciting (and potentially saleable) pictures and be well on your way to developing your own individual style.

You will have learnt valuable people skills which are essential when working with clients.

You will also have gained knowledge on how to develop your marketing and business skills to find your first paying customers.
