    Wedding Photography

  2. Deanne Bossell says:

    Great wedding photography class
    I really loved the shot ideas. So many great setups. I hope to use these ideas for a friend's wedding or mine one day. This is really helpful and well done.

    Professional and enthusiastic
    I loved this presenters courses on Digital Photography 1 & 2 so much that I opted to begin this course. His enthusiasm for photography (and life) is absolutely infectious (not like a disease). So much so, that I would like to meet him one day and just hang out and take photos all day; that would be a hoot! This course will be advantageous as being a half decent photographer, I want to learn the mystery of Wedding photography; not that I would launch myself into it as I couldn't think of anything more frightening, but maybe after going through this course a few times it may definitely give me the educational tools I require to actually do the job proficiently. Here's hoping! It amazes and intrigues me that a lot of 'famous' photographers are actually involved in Wedding Photography; it's obviously the glamour!
