I have been blessed by the many opportunities I have had to develop my skills as a photographer over the years. Many of the tricks I have learned from professional, in the field photographers and photojournalists. One of my greatest mentors, a National Geographic Photographer, taught me a focus and EF lock technique that revolutionized the way I took pictures. That simple, yet incredibly powerful technique is not taught in photo schools or listed in books, and it is even difficult to find online. I also don’t know of any photo schools that teach photographers how to communicate clear, direct, and calming instructions to a stressed bride on her wedding day. Having effective communication on a wedding day, or during any photo shoot, is even more important than your skills behind the lens. Learning to be a professional photographer was never an easy task for me. I struggled to find photography teachers who knew enough about photography, communication, business skills, and marketing that I felt they were qualified to teach me. It seemed that most of the “professionals” in the industry never wanted to share a peep about what they were doing, out of fear that someone would steal their ideas. I don’t agree with this kind of thinking. Instead, I want to share all the tricks of the trade that I have learned through the years, with you. Every bit of what I have learned from creating a professional wedding photography company I am making available to you, in the most understandable way I know how.
