On Friday and Saturday we had our Course Two for both weddings and portraits (different courses). Nearly all those attending had no photography experience but virtually all are now intending to start some form of photography business as soon as the course finishes.Thirteen have either paid a deposit to start a franchise or are seriously considering one.
Lindsey Hunter, one of the course members, who has attended several other courses and seminars was kind enough to approach me at the end of the day to say how much she had learnt. She highlighted the detail we include regarding the sequence of events and timings at weddings which often,when not properly planned, cause problems for both photographers and the couple.
We believe that a truly professional wedding photographer should act as a consultant to the couple to help ensure that everything runs smoothly on the day. What many people do not understand is that the photographer is the only supplier there from beginning to end, and is therefore in a unique position to help plan the day. If you are charging £2000 + for a wedding we believe that the photographer should fulfill this role and give a comprehensive service to the couple ….not just do the photographs.
