When I first started in photography, there was a lot I wish I knew.
The reason I created the Wedding Photography Blueprint was to give new wedding photographers as much help as they needed to get started including all the things I wish I knew way back when...
Now, the Wedding Photography Blueprint 2.0 has evolved to include a whole lot more information, tips, tricks and advice to not only get started but to excel in this business. I thought "what would have helped me?" and then to the best of my ability, included it as extensively as possible.
The interviews with various industry professionals offer some great and invaluable insights into the industry as a whole as well as giving some very useful titbits of information such as what photographers can do to get more work in and secure the jobs when meeting couples.
Andrew from one of the largest and most popular Photobook manufacturers goes through some of high quality, high end books that are mainly used by professional wedding photographers. He also runs through the process of creating and ordering the books which is a question I often get asked.
I have used this company since 2006 and love their range of products, as do my clients.
As well as giving his personal opinion on the future of wedding photography, Andrew explains how you can get a whopping 50% discount off your first studio order!
Melanie, the owner and CEO of one of the largest wedding planners on the south coast of England, is not just a wedding planner, she is also a budding entrepreneur and was the person who first brought beach weddings to the UK in 2012.
There are some excellent tips and invaluable advice given in this interview that you will most definitely want to see.
Jeremy is a friend and professional WPJA (Wedding Photojournalist Association) photographer that I worked closely with (and played golf with) when I lived in southern Spain.
I have seen his work go from great to amazing over the past 6 years and in this interview, originally filmed in 2008, I grill him for more than 45 minutes about his work, his photos and his thoughts on the entire industry.
It's great to hear all this from the photographers mouth, and a very successful, international one at that.
Sam and Henry were newlyweds when I filmed this interview and had just got back from their honeymoon. This meant that the entire day, including the selection process for their wedding photographer was still fresh in their minds.
I am sure you will find the information in this interview most helpful as you are hearing the thought processes and decision making reasons from an actual wedding couple.
Includes some insights into prices and what they were prepared to pay that you may find surprising too...very interesting.
This eBook has been updated from the original version and is now 124 pages long...a great compliment to the DVD's and possibly worth reading prior to watching the lessons.
Learn how to create a monthly, residual income from shooting stock.
This book has been selling well for a couple of years now all over the world. It has helped numerous people get started on the exciting journey that is stock photography.
I have been shooting and uploading stock for over 7 years now and have earned well over 6 figures from my efforts. I take you through all the necessary steps and teach you everything you need to know to get started and move forward in this exciting business.
Stock photography is a great way to supplement your wedding photography business income and I show you how to weave it into your everyday life.
This eBook expands upon DVD 7 in that it goes into more detail on how to build a solid photography business. Here is the index of chapters:
Again, the more strings you have to your bow, the better your business will be. I wrote this book a few years ago when I was a property photographer for one of the largest real estate companies in Spain shooting villas valued in the millions of Euros.
There is no reason why anyone cannot shoot stock and properties, again to supplement their wedding photography income.
This is a short eBook giving you an introduction to, and my advice/findings relating to, my/your/everybody's health
Why include this?
Well, if you are serious about becoming a full time wedding photographer, you don't have to be fit and healthy but I can guarantee it will help massively. I was quite heavy when I shot my last wedding in Spain/Gibraltar and because of this, I damaged my Achilles heel.
Shooting weddings since has been a pain sometimes (excuse the pun) as I have to carry so much gear but I rejected my doctor's advice and sorted the problem myself. Wow, what a difference.
That little lot should keep you going for a while!
"All going well here. Had a productive first wedding season with 12 weddings all in all and quite a few booked for next year. It's been a very enjoyable learning curve and something I wouldn't have been able to start on without your excellent course! - Clive Nolan"
"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."
