Wedding Photography Training from A Wedding Photographer who has seen it all

Back in 2009, I very nerviously headed to photograph my first wedding.  I had knots in my stomach but I was desperiate to make it work.  There was never a job I wanted to do more.  Since then, I've had the honour of photographing hundreds of weddings and engagement sessions.  I've had the honour of wining several international awards and being listed as one of the top wedding photographers in the UK.   

I'm passionate about giving others the same chance I've had to turn their love into their dream career.   I've always loved teaching others and I love that have the chance to give back to the photography community that has given me so much over the years.  

I offer several methods of training, from one-to-one sessions which are taliored specifically to you and what you need to hear, to group workshops, to blog posts and coming soon, onine videos.

In 2017, I undertook a video and podcast project with my friend and fellow wedding photographer, Marianne Chua.  The goal is to talk through a lot of techical and business aspects of our jobs on a totally free platform for people to learn more about photography and specificially wedding photography.  If you're looking for a no cost resource to learn more about wedding photography, give us a watch and subscribe!

Intriged? Here's some more information on One-to-One's...

Where are you based? 

I’m based in the North-East of London. However, I frequently shoot weddings throughout the the UK, so don't be afraid to ask if I'll be in your area soon.  

Where do we have the sessions? 

Sessions can either be done via skype or google hangouts or in-person at my home in North-East London. Subjects like lighting and flash are easier to teach in person. 

What is the advantage of one-to-one training over a workshop? 

Workshops are great for hearing about ideas and concepts that you may have never considered before and networking with other like minded photographers.  

One-to-one sessions are taliored specifically for you and the challanges you're facing.  You will always get something you need to hear out of one-to-one training.  They are also considerably more flexible and can fit around your schedule.

What can I expect? 

You can expect 100% honest and open discussion and feedback to help your passion into a career. 

Does your training include second shooting at real weddings? 

Depending where you are in your photography path, the training could potentionally extend to second shooting work.  Some of my students have come on board as assistants at certain weddings where they are were an excellent fit. 

Training with me does not guartee second shooting work with me, but if real world experience is what you're after, I'll do my best to make sure that we can find a way to make it happen for you somewhere.
