RUN A BUSINESS NOT A HOBBY.

First off running a wedding photography business isn’t all about creating amazing wedding photographs.  It’s about getting out there and setting up a business that has the longevity to still be there in three years when most small business have failed.

It’s about numbers, costs, profit margins, losses, selling, marketing, advertising, GDPR, SEO, Websites and a whole load of other things besides. 

It’s about way more than the art – no matter how good you are. You can take the world’s best wedding photographs, but if you don’t know how to run the business side of things you WILL fail.

“How Much Is Enough” is a two day workshop designed to change your mind set and et you on the right road to thinking about your hobby as a business.

This Wedding photography training workshop IS NOT about getting gorgeous styled images set up by someone else. If that’s your thing – this isn’t right for you.

IT IS about YOU doing the hard work investing in your business and camera skills.

    What it Costs

    The two days costs £275pp which includes drinks, light refreshments (sandwiches) etc.   

    If you wish to bring a second photographer along the price is £500 for both of you.

    Partners (husbands, wives, boyfriends, girlfriends etc) are an important part of making your business a success, even if they do nothing else except to support you emotionally.  So partners are very welcome at my workshops for an extra £75 to cover the 2 days meals / drinks.

    WHAT DO YOU GET FOR YOUR MONEY?

    LET’S FACE IT.  YOU WANT A RETURN ON INVESTMENT.

    You get a no holds barred conversation and input from me throughout the two days. No question is off limits on how I run my business.

    You get a qualified and expert coach to guide you all day.  Group numbers are small to give you the time YOU need to get what YOU want.

    You get a complete set of the notes electronically. (This wedding photography training workshop isn’t about a great set of notes /powerpoint slides and a few notebooks & pens.  It’s about the content.).

    You get a copy of my 16-page contract and Welcome Pack (welcome letter, suggested photographs plus more).

    You get a copy of my Adobe Lightroom (and probably Capture One) preset to help speed up your workflow.

    You get a copy of my Adobe Photoshop Actions to help speed up your workflow.

    You get coffee/tea (and it won’t be to keep you awake.  This is a fast paced two-days.

    You get 12 months free coaching via FB.

    You get access to my Facebook Group – The PSG, The Photographers Support Group.  A very safe place to learn your craft.

    I regularly run workshops at highly discounted prices (£50 per member) for members as well as being on hand to help with advice etc.  The workshop topics are dictated by the Facebook Group – you ask me and I’ll arrange it. So far in 2019 we have done a day on SEO, a day on editing techniques and a half day on financial management / pensions etc

    Lightroom, Photoshop & Business Info

    As part of the workshop you also get full access to the Adobe Lightroom Presets I use as well as access to the Adobe Photoshop Actions, Cost of Doing Business spreadsheet,Terms & Conditions, Welcome Letters, Contracts and much more.  I don’t hide anything, and everything is on the table to help you start your business or improve your business.  This is held on a DropBox folder so you can access it anytime you need to, and it’s also updated regularly with new stuff!

    Off Camera Lighting Kit

    I use Godox exclusively for my On Camera and Off Camera work.  You will be able to utilise my wide range of Godox lights (AD600pro, AD360, AD200, V1, V680ii, TT685 etc).  All trigger / wireless systems will be provided.  If you wish to bring your own kit we can spend time going through that to show you how to get similar results.

    We will have real brides and or grooms, not professional models.  If you are going to run a wedding photography business you need to know how to communicate with & pose real people! And yes, I said communicate.  You will be surprised at how little communication some photographers have with their wedding couples on the day.

    My coupes have been warned that if you take too long or do not communicate with them they will walk off. Real weddings run to a time frame.

    So where do I begin. Alan sugar of the camera world I believed myself to be a year or so ago. When quite frankly I was a clicker with a kit lens, body and a Flash!

    Me and my partner opened our business a month or two prior to going to Andrews workshop, after completing an A level in photography and just knowing this path was for me.

    Lauren found Andrews workshop and we both agreed it would be a wise investment to make and boy wasn’t it the best thing we’ve ever spent money on during our photography journey.

    We arrived as two novices and left as educated and eager business owners.

    We spent the day discussing financing, pricing, budgeting, contracts, insurance and so much more!

    Our contract before the workshop was merely a single side of A4 with a dotted line. Now it’s a 16 page document specifying every nook and cranny that before would have legally finished us. Along with having public liability insurance and personal indemnity insurance.

    We also got to understand file formatting, Lightroom batch processing and all that tech geeky stuff.

    With a quick bite to eat (mac and cheese my favourite) and a general chat around a coffee table it was time to hit the big boys toys. Using Andrews godox AD600 ( I now own this bad boy) to light up a model in a wedding dress. Giving us pointers on how to interact with the client and keep them moving, as in a wedding day they will get tired very quickly.

    With this we came to the end of our day and even though slightly overwhelmed we had a path set for us.

    Now a year on our business has successfully completed almost 10 weddings and our reputation is growing rapidly.

    Through this time we’ve also increased our package prices twice, due to not only our increased demand but also due to them gorgeous nphoto albums Andrew introduces us too.

    If you’re thinking about this course just stop and ask yourself these questions.

    Do you know how much each shutter click costs you? Do you know the inverse square law properly? Do you know about public liability insurance? These are just some of the things I was once clueless on but thanks to Andrew I am now completely confident in.

    And to top it all off I have made a very dear friend. Me and Andrew are always in conversation and meet up regularly to photograph together and discuss future prospects.

    So to summarise.    DO THE WORKSHOP!
