The Future of Photography – Since its birth and for around 100 years, photography hasn’t really changed that much if you think about it. You had a box with a lens attached which streams light in and records it onto a film plane and now onto a digital sensor.
In Ye Olde days of film cameras, the only things that changed with regards to technology were the lens quality and the mechanics of the camera itself, the shutter, the exposure system, the speed etc, the recording media (film or emulsion) hasn’t really changed too much over time, especially towards the end, not when you compare it to digital and its rapid advances.

One thing that I have learned along the way is to keep a diary of all events and job possibilities when running a photography business. Double booking is a no-no especially when it comes to wedding photography.
If you are just starting out it is all too easy to simply try and remember what bookings you have, even if it is just 2 or 3. This is when problems could arise.
Unless you have your bookings and even enquiries written down, you could fall victim to a double booking and this could harm your reputation and ultimately your business. Read more »

Amateur Wedding Photography Tips – Since I have been using the internet over the past 4-5 years, I have come across many photography sites, some quite excellent and some that are quite honestly abysmal. The danger with the internet is that when a “photographer” with a newly built website, is possibly someone who has just taken up photography, bought themselves an overly expensive and professional camera and then maybe stumbled across a great photo or two! They then learn how to do a few tricks or manipulations with editing software such as Photoshop and “Da-Naa” they are a professional photographer. Read more »

A well organized portfolio will be every photographer’s best asset when it comes to attracting potential clients. Here are a few tips to a winning and organized portfolio: 1. Make sure your portfolio only shows your best images!! If you have ‘deer in the headlight’ eyes caused by the pop-up flash, throw it out! As well as any studio shots with bad shadows on a backdrop or basically any badly exposed images (out-of-focus shots scream amateur a million miles away no matter how cute Suzy Q looked in it!)… ACTUALLY, if you are still producing these types of shots then rethink starting your business until your shots become business worthy!
