The Wedding Photography Blueprint 2.0 was based upon an intensive 3 day course that we filmed in and around Dorset in the UK one chilly but sunny November.
As I was preparing, writing and organising the course, it became apparent that we were going to cover just about everything that anyone would need to know to get started in wedding photography.
Not only that, but in the hotel where we were holding the course, there was to be an actual wedding on the Saturday which was a huge bonus for us. It meant we would have the main ballroom of the hotel and the ceremony room completely kitted out ready for the wedding.
Perfect for practising on!
As another bonus, the couple that we used as models had themselves got married in this venue earlier that year which meant I simply had to film it to create the updated and revised Wedding Photography Blueprint DVD's. As with a perfect wedding venue, everything was within walking distance of the main venue...the hotel, the church, the reception hall and the locations for portraits and group shots.
Lastly, on the Saturday evening (which just happened to be Guy Fawkes night or "bonfire night"), the actual couple getting married that day allowed myself and the students to photograph them watching the fireworks on the beach which we cover in a little detail in the DVD's.
The chances are that I wouldn't get a chance to hold another course quite like this one so filming it was a no brainer in the hope that it could help people get started all over the world with all the information that they would possibly need inclulded.
"Just wanted to say thanks. I got the DVD course at the end of last year in preparation for a friends wedding. I gave them the photos last week and they are absolutely thrilled. Definitely could not have done it without your help. The basic camera setting you recommend in the DVD was worth the price on it's own. I didn't get a single badly exposed shot " - Lee Brookes, UK."
"Nick, Thank you very much. I purchased your Wedding Blueprint last year. Last Saturday, I did my first wedding. I used a lot of your tips and everything went better than planned. Thank you, your DVD's gave me the confidence I needed to do the job. The photos turned out better than I could of expected. Now all I can think of is, Roll on wedding number two, three,......etc etc. - Mick Lumley, IRELAND "
"I am so glad that I got that problem with PayPal sorted. I received the discs a few days later and all I want to say is "Wow, probably the best tutorials I have ever bought". The professionalism of the videos, the way it then cuts to show the result in Photoshop is awesome. You've a great manner and no ego and I can see you really want to get it across to your students. - T.H. Dublin."
