    One of the difficulties that wedding photographers face is the challenge of having their work published online or in a magazine publication. With so many photographers vying for the limited space available, it’s easy to see how vital this coverage can be. Not only will it showcase your creativity and talent, but it will serve as some of the most effective marketing available – because it is directly targeted to your core audience.   Noting these benefits, we offer these tips to wedding photographers looking to have their work published. While we anticipate they will improve your chances, at the end of the day the detail and quality of your photos, as well as the story your work is able to convey, will both be defining factors.

  2. What Will it Take to Break a Perception?

    April 19, 2016 by Rene Anthony

    Although the year is barely four months old, we’ve already seen a (disappointing) trend amongst several of the stories we’ve brought to you through our social media outlets – namely, a lack of appreciation and respect for the people who build their lives upon their passion for photography. While this is certainly nothing new – after all, since the dawn of time there have been people who try to depreciate a photographer’s skills – one would expect that in today’s age things would be a lot better. Or is that the problem itself? Today’s age is now so heavily oriented on camera phones, affordable point and shoots, and a gross obsession with the selfie, that people have lost their sense of understanding in what it takes to be a photographer. Even more concerning, this is something the media has (implicitly) perpetuated to the wider masses. Take for example, two leading… | Read the full article

    This is the start of a new series where we will be interviewing featured photographers and getting an insight into them and their photography. Today we start with the first person Natasha Lesonie.   My name is Natasha,  I am a portrait photographer. How long have you been taking photos? Why did you start?   I’ve been taking photos for 7 years. It started when my first baby was born. I was eager to catch every moment of her life, hands, the passion to the photography. I quickly realized that it’s not enough just to have a professional camera but it also important to study photography as an art. Little by little people started asking me to take photo of their families. Then I received a few requests from agencies and photo magazines who wanted to use my photos for commercial advertisement and even put them on cover pages. That… | Read the full article

    My followers know recently that I photographed a wedding, I wasn’t the main photographer, I was the second photographer with very specific requirements.  I had never met the other photographer before and, as you do, we got talking.   One of the things that came up was insurance.  I asked him if he had insurance, and he said yes, he had all his gear covered under his house and contents insurance.  That is something a lot of us have, you get special insurance on your contents that protects your gear when you are away from the house.   I replied, is that all.  He looked at me and I said, what about public liability insurance?  What about the insurance you get to cover you if something happens to all the photos you have taken?   It has not occurred to him that he would need any further insurance.  He was fairly… | Read the full article


  5. Finding the Perfect Wedding Photographer

    November 12, 2012 by David Lye

    When a special occasion is coming up in your life, or you want to remember or memorialize the moment, finding a photographer is your first step toward putting your memories on paper. However, depending on your scenario or need, finding a photographer isn’t always easy. For example, when looking for a photographer for your wedding, one of your first considerations is going to be regarding cost. After all, you want someone who is able to capture your most precious and candid moments while at the same time not breaking your budget. Get the best of both worlds by choosing a lesser-known photographer in your area. For example, a photographer who has just opened his or her own business is a good way to not only saving money, but finding an excellent photographer that meets your needs. Always ask to review their portfolio first! In addition, also consider hiring a student… | Read the full article


  6. Choosing a Wedding Photographer – Make a Wise Choice

    October 11, 2012 by David Lye

    Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life, and you want to capture it perfectly. That’s why choosing a wedding photographer is so important. It’s not just about price. It’s about skill, experience, and knowing just the right moment to click. Choosing the best wedding photographer for your needs also depends on several factors. For example, is your wedding or wedding reception going to be held indoors or outdoors, at sunrise, the middle of the day, at sunset, or in the evening? Such questions will determine the skills and experience of one photographer over another. Some wedding photographers specialize in outdoor, exotic locale weddings, while others have more experience with indoor shots. When choosing a wedding photographer, narrow down the list of local photographers in your area. Determine whether you’re looking for traditional indoor and outdoor shots, or customized, glamour or fashion photography. Next, determine… | Read the full article


  7. Choosing A Wedding Venue

    July 24, 2012 by David Lye

    When planning a wedding there’s so much to think about – from the decor of the reception, the wedding dress or bridal party styles, wedding cake and seating arrangements, but one of the most important aspects of your day will be the photography. A wedding photographer will capture priceless moments of your day and provide you with memories for the rest of your life. While there are so many beautiful venues to choose from, you should think about how your venue choice will work with the photography. In some wedding venues or churches, photographers don’t have a lot of room to move around – especially in the front of the venue where your vows are taking place at the altar. When there is no room for the photographer in front of the church or venue, they’re often only able to capture the special moments from behind you, up above in… | Read the full article
