Tyme Wedding Workshop
After 8 years in the industry we finally hosted our first wedding photography workshop!
We’ve been hosting TYMEOUT workshops for beginners for some time now.
We’ve presented at several big photography expos but for some reason the idea of teaching our peers for two days was way more scary.
We’ve always felt that until we had ‘earned our stripes’, we would refrain from telling others how to earn theirs.
Now over 400 Weddings later, international destination weddings under our belt, hundreds of late nights and many beads of sweat later we decided to share what we’ve learnt along the way over the past 10 years at this 2 day WEDDING WORKSHOP.
Our industry is so full of talented people! There’s so much information on photography out there and the accessibility to helpful tools make it much easier for photographers to reach professional status relatively quickly. Many creatives still struggle however with running a sustainable business doing what they love. This workshop was aimed to help with this.
‘The Art of Business’
We spoke about the value of your website, social media, wedding expos and working with other service providers. We then had a Skype interview with Kate from WEDDING CONCEPTS to talk about how to work with wedding co-ordinators and commissions.
This workshop wouldn’t have been possible without the amazing sponsors we were so grateful to work with.
We wanted to give the students the opportunity to shoot beautiful things that they won’t always get to shoot at a real wedding and to work with professional models to help them learn the importance of body language and posing. We chose to host the workshop in our very own natural light studio and then headed out to MORRELLS for our location shoot where we could take advantage of the soft afternoon light.
You may not know this but when we started shooting we learnt to shoot full manual mode on film, we even had a little darkroom setup at home. YES it was a good place to make out when we were dating;-) but this is where our love for photography and each other really made deep roots in our hearts.
We’ve realized along the way that staying inspired throughout a big season is always a challenge.
Shooting film can be a great way to keep your passion going. Shoot for yourself, shoot because you love this art form, shoot because its your culture!
We invited our crazy friends, Seth and Tenielle from FEATHER AND STONE to talk to the students a bit about why they shoot film and what film can do for you as a shooter.
Thank you to everyone for making this workshop such a success. We had the best time with you in our space, learning and growing together.
We are looking forward to watching your businesses reach new heights over the next few months and years.
Now we are super excited to host the next one;-)
