Many Professional photographers advance their skills by attending seminars and workshops where a skilled tutor will pose and light a ‘Bride’ (very rarely a groom also!) so the delegates can learn new skills or hone old ones. Sadly, some of the delegates use pictures they have taken as examples of their own work or ‘forget’ to say they were created on a workshop, so always ask your Photographer to show you completed real weddings, not just a few great shots!!
We are part of a committee that organises seminars and workshops in the local area on behalf of The MPA and The BIPP so if you are interested in in advancing your professional photographic skills do get in touch.
