Photography Training Park Cameras Training Day Report
Last weekend saw me speak for my friends at Park Cameras in West Sussex. This was the third time i had been invited to be the speaker at one of Park's photography training courses. The subject was about building and running a wedding photography business with a live demonstration, using a model, to explain about using window and how to pose a bride simply.
It was terrific to see a full house of delegates when i arrived. Delegates has come from all over the country to hear what i had to say and a couple of friendly faces had been before!
The seminar was held in Park Camera's dedicated photography training room above their showroom in Burgess Hill and i kicked off with an AV showcasing my images from the past couple if years mixed in with a few past award winning shots to give everyone a flavour of my style and approach to shooting weddings.
The morning session was primarily about the business of weddings and marketing techniques designed to help in today's difficult market place. Following lunch, our lovely model Chloe joined us so that i could demonstrate simple lighting and posing ideas that work well in any situation. Afterwards we ran through the images on large TV to show the actual unedited and untouched results.
The photography training course seemed to go down very well, with three delegates signing up for my 9th may intensive wedding photography workshop there and then!
The past few days have seem me receive countless kind emails saying how much folks got from the day and i have taken the liberty of sharing a few below as well as a couple of images from our short live shoot with Chloe. If you are reading this Chloe, thank you for your time and patience. You were great to work with and i hope to do again very soon.
If you want any information about my 9th May workshop or any of my wedding photography training courses, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Peter, I just wanted to email and say thank you for the course on Saturday at Park Cameras. You have opened my eyes a lot more to the ins and outs of wedding photography and also made me realise I have a lot of work to do before I start doing weddings myself.
Thanks again for your advice.
Thank you for the great wedding photography workshop last Saturday at Park Cameras, you have refreshed my enthusiasm and drive to swap my IT career for a photography career!!
Also if you ever need a bag man or someone to hold your iPhone for lighting purposes, I would love to help out on one of your shoots..
I attended your course last Saturday and I found it really interesting and picked up some really good ideas from you so thank you very much.
Thank you very much.
Firstly thanks for a great day yesterday at park cameras. I found your information to be very useful in my dream to one day work for myself doing what I love.
Will you be running any more training days in the future as unfortunately I can't make it in may.
Thank you for putting on a great seminar yesterday. I found the seminar well composed and very resourceful! So well done. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending the seminar to others.
All the best,
Many thanks for the workshop yesterday. I am at the very beginning of setting up, and looking to do this in parallel to my day job so knowing that you managed this is great to know.
Again, Many thanks for the informative course. My wife runs a wedding cake business and I even managed to pick up some tips that would help her so I managed to squeeze even more value out of it.
