My next creative wedding photography workshop will be my last before the season really begins; see below for more details, and to book your place.
Date: Saturday March 21st 2015
Time: 10 am – 6 pm. Hanging out for a meal, chat and a cider or two afterwards, too, of course!
Venue: The Watergate Bay Hotel, Cornwall, UK. A really lovely hotel, right on the beach – fab views included! A great place to come for a short break / holiday 🙂
Suitable for: Photographers of any level, wanting to increase their reportage and creative wedding photography skills, push their business forward, and get more bookings (and the clients you really want).
Investment: £350, limited to 15 people. *SOLD OUT* – Please use the form at the bottom of this page to go on the reserve list, or register interest in future workshops.
What we’ll cover: Lots! I want you to get as much out of this workshop as possible, and I’ve created a schedule which’ll cover everything, including:
- How I approach each part of the wedding day
- The equipment I use
- How and why it’s so important to be creative throughout the entire wedding
- Just why no posing is ever required
- Composition; how to capture moments creatively
- Empathy; how to be in tune with your weddings, and thus really get those emotions and moments.
- How to get more bookings, and making sure they’re the clients you want.
- My background before doing this was in search engine optimisation, too, so I’ll be letting you know all about SEO. Practical, actionable advice that’ll get you ranking.
- What works for me in terms of Social Media.
- Workflow and editing technique
- …and much more…!
What this isn’t: My workshop won’t be about posing, or setting up shots. To me, that’s not what wedding photography is about. So, although some time with the just the couple is a very important part to capture, I’ll show you how I do this totally pose-free, obtaining images which are natural, yet still dynamic and creative. If you’re looking for a workshop where you can get shots of two models for your portfolio, this isn’t it. If you’re interested in capturing *every* element of a wedding day creatively yet naturally, then this *is* it 🙂
Nothing will be held back; I’m yours to ask anything of, and my goal is for you to come away not only inspired, but armed with a whole new set of skills, techniques and knowledge to propel your business. Everything I’ve done and learned to go from just starting out, to becoming one of Rangerfinder’s ’30 Rising Stars’ in the world, and two time winner of Best Reportage Wedding Photographer (WWA 2013 & 2014), in just three years of business, is what I’ll share.
Some kind words from previous attendees:
Paul Richards from Albion Row Photography wrote a lovely review on my last workshop. An excerpt: “Needless to say, I would highly recommend that any photographer attend one of Alan’s workshops if they have the chance. Top bloke, amazing wedding photographer and all round nice guy to spend a day with!”. Full review here.
“Brilliant day Alan! Thank you so much, very inspiring and I am all fired up to make the changes I need to make and go forward with my business. I would highly recommend your workshop to anyone, your sincerity and relaxed approach to teaching is refreshing!” – Cristina Rossi Photography
“Thanks so much again for the workshop. We both really enjoyed it and found it motivating & inspiring too. It really ignited our love for shooting weddings and people and really drilled it home about shooting the whole day and not just the bride and groom, I love that approach. You images are just stunning and it was really lovely to hear you chat about it and see how you do some things. The SEO stuff was of course super good too, we’re looking forward to putting it into practise.” – Anna Clarke Photography
“Thanks Alan! Great day very inspiring! My brain is still in a freeze-shock-mode looking forward to putting it all into action! Thanks again and looking forward to stay in touch with you and everyone!” – Ilaria Petrucci Photography
“It was great to come down and see you on your home turf and I think everyone got lots from the day. What I’d say about the seminar was that it was a great mix of inspiring photography and sound business advice that any level of photographer would benefit from.” – Andrew Billington Photography
“I loved yesterday, it was totally, utterly worth the 13 hour round trip! Thank you for putting together such a great session for us.” – Rabbit Hole Photography
“Brilliant. Soooo much to take in. As close to a Vulcan mind meld as you’re going to get. It was a great seminar and a very valuable experience in learning how someone else ‘sees’. I particularly liked the talk through of each image (I could have done that all day), and of course the SEO ‘bit’. Lots of golden nuggets in there! Having some printed notes to take away was very useful (obviously for the SEO), as it allowed more time to listen to what you were saying.” – Mark Leaonard Photography
“Fantastic day – thanks Alan. Great to meet everyone. So inspired to be brave enough to carve out my own style rather than sticking to what’s ‘safe’!” – Isabelle Fearne Photography
“Just wanted say thanks for a top day Alan, learnt loads, made some new friends and caught up with others. Thanks for being so generous in sharing your own experiences and the endless patience with all the questions. Nice one, thanks again” – Scott Sharples Photography
“It was a very insightful day, so much to take in. I just hope I can decipher my own scrawl into legible notes. Many thanks Alan, I feel inspired and motivated.” – Michael Poole, Luna Photography
“Thank you Alan, such a great day with excellent company. Made some new friends and have come away feeling very inspired!” – Brian Robinson Photography
“Thanks so much Al, Law School was awesome! It was an extremely interesting and informative day. It was great to hear your creative ideas and approach to wedding photography and the SEO part of the day was packed full of really useful information. I don’t think I have ever taken down so many notes from one workshop! If anyone is considering this workshop then I would highly recommend it, it’s worth every penny. Al is a top bloke and an inspirational wedding photographer.” – Stewart Girvan Photography
“I have had the most brilliant weekend! Yesterday I was lucky to be a part of a photography workshop run by one of my favourite photographers, Alan Law. It was an inspirational day in the beautiful setting of Watergate Bay, I learnt so much my head is spinning!!” – Rebecca Leigh Photography
