Now available as a series of videos, recorded at our live workshop in March 2018. This is the ultimate documentary wedding photography workshop for all wedding photographers if you want to learn the art of capturing great moments and how to tell powerful, emotive stories with your images.
The tools and techniques you need for making powerful documentary wedding images, and how to use them across every part of the wedding for powerful story collections. Through a series of easy to follow videos we will teach you the entire mindset and toolkit we use to capture amazing moments and tell emotive stories in our work.
The moments mindset and the lost art of getting lucky. Learn how to capture the shots you always seem to miss. How to work with clients to ensure you are always in the right place at the right time. How to be fearless and get close and make photos that matter.
The art of Story Telling. How to Find and tell a great story and the art of presenting it – we’ll teach you how to effectively cull and curate your work. Then how to take them and create powerful images, blog posts, slideshows and albums.
