This two-day intensive Workshop with well-known photographer and author Steve Sint, offers you an exciting opportunity to learn the most important aspects of being a successful wedding photographer, from both a creative and a business perspective.
On the first day, the focus will be on photographic technique. You’ll be working with live models and mannequins, and you’ll learn how to make your pictures look better and more professional than your competition. You’ll learn what to do when the couple or caterer gives you 15 (or 30) minutes for posed pictures, how to make your subjects look better, and make your pictures pop off the page. Steve will show you how to use a second, third, or fourth flash so that your photos appear more three-dimensional and more flattering than the pictures the guests take with their digital cameras.
On the second day, you’ll find out how to make $500 an hour instead of $500 per day! Steve will tell you how to ‘make it’ in this exciting career; you’ll learn how to control your costs, save your time, generate leads and increase your profitability for success.
Participants should bring a digital SLR with a fully charged battery and a mid-range zoom lens. You will need a CF or SD card large enough and fast enough to allow for both shooting and using your camera as a visual notebook. Additionally, you should bring 3-7 prints from your portrait/wedding portfolio.
Also bring items for note taking during this hands-on Workshop.
