Wedding Photography Training Workshop

Wedding Photography Training Workshop

Well we have just had another sell out 5 day training course and what a great week it was.

The course was full of lovely ladies and gents who were eager to further their skills and prepare them for a move into the realms of a professional paid photographer.

The weather for the week was changeable, but this is not always a bad thing, it is a great way to show people that we do have to work in all weather conditions and have to be able to adapt our schedules literally minute by minute, thanks to the good old British weather!

5 Day Wedding and Portrait Photography Training Workshop

Wedding Photography Training Workshop

Our Location day wedding was at the very lovely Hazlewood Castle near York. The perfect venue for any wedding, and a dream location for photographers. The weather was fine on our arrival and remained calm until after lunch, but  as predicted by the weather man the winds grew stronger due to a an imminent storm on its way... good job I had my running shoes on to catch that veil!

The day was busy and ran at a fast pace; only stopping for a short lunch and a couple of quick coffee’s, meant that we could cover many of the best photographic locations.

April is a great month at Hazlewood, and one of the reason we run a course at this time of year. It really gives the students a full on taste of why brides love spring weddings.  

The blossom trees were in full bloom, and gave us a fantastic show when the winds blew in... a confetti style shot with a carpet of pink flowers. The bluebells made a carpet of purple in the woods along the drive, and the rapeseed fields were a riot of waist high yellow flowers...  great shots for the students!

Following the location shoot, the guys a very enlightening day learning post production and work flow. With plenty of time for questions and answers at the end, they left for the evening buzzing.

Thursday was studio and portrait day, much fun was had with the our very lovely models, Lauren and Chloe. The guys left the studio very tired... who thought photography could be so physically demanding. LOL

Friday was another opportunity for the guys to view their images and learn more about preparing work for client presentation. The day was rounded off with off camara flash and a business chat.

Well done guys you all worked so hard and your images are excellent!

I would just like to add, that at the time of writing this blog we have already received 4 5* reviews from the students on this course.  Thank you all x

The following are all 100% genuine testimonials left for us by our Customers

"Just completed the 5 day course and loved every minute of it, this couple ooze inspiration, so being a complete beginner on the technical side of photography I came away with a wealth of knowledge and buzzing with inspiration, Gary and Paula couldn't have crammed anymore information into five days and couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating, I am now hoping to book the five day landscape course, I honestly can't believe how far I have come and delighted I stumbled across this training course to explore my passion for photography"

"Just returned from 5 Day Wedding and Portrait Workshop, run by Gary and Paula Gough, at Shootsmart. The atmosphere was relaxed, and the information was presented in a light hearted manner, with plenty of jokes and stories from Gary and Paula, which helped get the information across.One day was a mock wedding, held at the lovely Hazelwood Castle, with two lovely models, and plenty of posing and setup advice, and I've come away with some fantastic pictures, which if they hadn't come off my card I would never have believed they were mine.Other days were spent in the studio, outside with off camera flash and some amazing Photoshop sessions.I've come away with a lot more knowledge, and look forward to attending other courses. Definitely recommend the courses if you want to do more than point and shoot with your camera"

I did both the Love Your SLR (15th March) and the 5 Day Wedding/Portrait Course (2nd - 5th March) and both were excellent. I bought my camera sometime last year and pretty much never used it as I didn't really know what I was doing. I'd read a couple of books in the past but nothing beats hand on experience and Gary give you that experience in droves.From photographing items such as shoes, flowers, wedding dresses etc, to people in poses in a mock wedding at Ripley Castle (North Yorkshire), to people in a studio, to off camera flash location shoots around Elland, to using and understanding light meters, The list goes on and on.I had a fantastic time at shootsmart and I would like to thank Gary and his wife Paula who kept us well fed and everything running to schedule, And Kelly who is their assistant/stand in model.I can't recommend them highly enough.
