Wedding Photography Education
Mentoring, Workshops and So Much More
I had a bit of a rocky start to my role within the wider wedding photography community. I posted within an open forum and another wedding photographer challenged my education in a negative way. From that point on I felt the community had nothing to offer other than pitting us and our knowledge against each other.
It wasn’t until many years later when I attended my first wedding photography workshop and subsequently joined many supportive communities that I realised there was a great peer-2-peer community of wedding photographers openly teaching other wedding photographers. To say I found my calling would be making it a bit too Hollywood but I’ve always been passionate about helping/teaching other wedding photographers so the chance to put my knowledge to good use is a welcome distraction in my down time from shooting weddings full time.
Rather than to regurgitate the same old story of “This Is How I Got My Break” I instead choose to dial into different aspects of my business and then provide in-depth learnings on how we can make these better for you. A lot of people just want a hour or two to pick my brain and a 1-2-1 mentoring session is perfect for them.
I hope I can help you in some way as it would mean the absolute world to me.
Instagram Digital Workshop
90mins of Instagram Gold to Up Your Game
My crown and glory. The absolute thing I am most proud of in the world at this current time. I used to host Zoom Instagram Workshops which were great but they used to wear me out so much.
Due to people possibly sharing my video without prior consent I never wanted to record the live course nor make a professional digital copy until I realised how great it would be for people to dip in and out of whenever needed. I then challenged myself at the start of 2023 to make the digital copy and here it now stands. An hour and a half of all of my best teachings surrounding Instagram and how I use it. I’ve had such great feedback from wedding photographers and videographers.
Wedding Photography Equipment
My Go To Gear Along with Links To Buy
A lot of people constantly ask me about what equipment I use so I’ve made it easier and listed it all with a little write up and link to buy.
This also includes all the equipment information about how I capture my behind the scenes videos. All of the links are affiliate links so I appreciate any purchase made through them.
Social Media + Wedding Photography/Videography
Free To Join Facebook Help Group
Following my old in person Instagram workshops I started this group to keep people up to date on any new findings I had with the app and the way I use. After a while I realised I wanted to help provide a baseline understanding surrounding social media to anyone who wanted to listen which is why the group became a free to join group. I still update the group with new learnings from the Instagram app as well as sharing what works for me.
There are parts of my Instagram workshop I mention in here but the Instagram workshop is a lot more thorough.
1-2-1 Wedding Photography Mentoring
Based Around Any Topic You’d Like To Learn About
I know a lot of the time their is a specific issue which is holding me back from being a better wedding photographer. When this happens I seek out the best person for said issue and throw them a bit of money to alleviate this lack of knowledge. That’s exactly what a 1-2-1 mentoring session is. You’ll pick a specific topic and we’ll spend the whole time and usually a bit more chatting about how you can improve this for your wedding photography couples.
Mentoring sessions can be in Stoke-on-Trent or via Video Call. If you’re interested then please fill out the form below.
I have a wide knowledge but I believe my current biggest strengths are:
- Shooting a Wedding with Minimal Gear (1 Camera, 1 Lens)
- Organic Social Media Reach
- Pic-Time Setup and Workflow
- Client Journey and Expectation Setting
- Dance-floor Flash Photography
- Transition Execution – Moving from Full-Time Employment to Self-Employement
Another free option if you’re wanting to learn from me is to go and listen to all of the various podcast appearances I’ve made over the years.
