There are two aspects of this industry I love. First, is working with companies who care about the industry like Westcott. Yes, they're a company who needs to sell products, but there's so much extra they do in support of helping photographers become better at their craft. The content on WestcottU and their support of so many of the best educators in our industry is a prime example. Brandon Heiss says it best in the intro video on YouTube, "Westcott is much more than a lighting company!"
Second is being surrounded by talented friends who have become the leaders in imaging. Bob Davis is one of those artists blazing a trail of creativity for you to follow. He's always sharing new ideas in "how-to" technique as well as business and marketing. He never slows down on pushing the edge of the envelope and helping other artists.
While it's a chaotic period at every wedding, it's also a time when photographers have some of the very best control. It's your opportunity to capture some stunning moments. Plus, there's a level of anticipation in the air, almost demanding you pay attention and not miss the special moments.
Click on the video and play it full screen to fully appreciate Bob's tips, and then click on the "groomal" photograph above to read the complete post, including great suggestions on bridal images. Bob should be on your radar - his website is just a click away!
Don't forget - if you need lighting gear or any of Westcott's great accessories - everything you buy when you enter through the door above to their website earns 10% of what the cost to Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep. SCU is a Westcott affiliate, but we do NOT keep the commission, but send it on to one of the most recognized nonprofits in photography.
And, if you need a little inspiration - there's a lot waiting for you with a click on WestcottU below!
