Student References

I have had the most amazing opportunity to join practicing wedding photographers at weddings as assistants.† My tutor has arranged assistant type work for me with other photographers, and by joining photographers at the weddings we have had the opportunity to be exposed to the happenings at the weddings, what the important functions are of a photographer and all the creative tips involved. I have also been exposed to the work of many professional wedding photographers, and they have all been open to discuss important aspects of the wedding photography industry.

Once mastered, is a beautiful art thatís captures a couples most intimate, emotional and extraordinary moments in that special chapter in their book of life. You witness, and most importantly, capture their softest and most vulnerable sides. This to me, is such a wonderful way to contribute to someone's happiness. This photography is somewhat the most stressful as there's no second chance to capture that split second of a moment, but at the same time so rewarding.
