Feedback from The Wedding Photography Shoot Workshop
I have been getting some great feedback from the first Wedding Photography Shoot Workshop. Many thanks to the participants for booking on the shoot and their kind words.
I was a little hesitant initially due to my lack of experience but Andy made everything flow smoothly and made everyone feel at ease and it was a great time. I came away with a lot more technical knowledge, more confidence in going for the shot and a new portfolio section of wedding photography images.
The course is excellent value for money and I can't speak highly enough about it. I recommend this course for anyone thinking of moving into wedding photography and wants to work with a professional to find out if they would enjoy this type of shooting as a job, or just anyone who fancies a photographic opportunity that this provides.
A very practical, well organised and informative course. It is not hard to see why Andy's courses draw in attendees from across the country. We had two brilliant models (bride and groom) for the day and covered all eventualities - outside /inside church and outside /inside reception venue. There is no better way to develop confidence for a wedding shoot than through practical experience. This course helped ensure you recognise the key challenges and know how best to address them. In particular the need to know where you want the shots (given the light). We covered flash and fill-in flash in some detail (although this is another course in itself) and the use of soft-box type lighting, and reflectors. Being with other photographers interested in Wedding photography helped stimulate creative juices and provided a great deal of inspiration for future shoots. Perhaps next time we can also cover the challenges of 'group shots'. In short, a very helpful introduction and excellent value for money.
This workshop was very enjoyable, with a good range of techniques covered. The content and training was pitched at the right level for the group, giving time for attendees to explore their own creative ideas, with support from Andy on key aspects as required. Guidance and options to consider were provided, and a good balance between structure and freedom was achieved. I am pleased with the images obtained, and will take confidence from this workshop for future wedding shoots.
I have no hesitation in recommending Andy's training as he creates a friendly, supportive and welcoming environment within which to learn.
I have spaces available on the workshops on Tuesday 17th June and Wednesday 16th July.
