Event Photography is one of the fastest growing areas of photography, the use of specialised digital equipment enables on-site proof and print services to be offered for a relatively modest investment.
However, all is not rosy in the event photography garden, the lower capital investment required to get started offering these services has led to a new breed of event photographer offering sub standard products and services. As with any industry there will always be those who want to make a "quick-buck" to the detriment of their customers and the professionals who invest heavily in equipment and training, we call them "Weekend Warriors".
Event-Photos offer a professional training and mentoring service for all its event teams and are always looking for new teams who share the same aims, to offer professional products, services and value for money.
From time to time we hold training days, usually at live events including Motorsport, Equestrian or water sport days that enable you to come and learn more about the event photography business, being able to take a good photograph is only the tip of the ice-berg but feel free to bring your camera along.
If you are interested in attending a training day drop an email to [email protected] and we'll keep you informed of our next training day.
Here is an opportunity for you to read a few of our "Course Evaluation forms" warts and all!
Comments fron Danny Rhodes who attended one of our equestrian days recently;
Just writing to say thanks for a great day at the equestrian event training course.
I have always maintained that for me, the value of a course lays in whether I can use what I have been taught. It has to be said that the shots I learned and the associated techniques - which by the way would never have occured to me independently - have been usable and more importantly saleable from the moment I left on the day.
You pointed out on several occasions during the day - sometimes very explicitly - that shots other than the ones taught would not sell because owners wanted their mounts to look as good as possible. You were spot on in this regard Ian the ONLY shots that I have managed to sell in any quantity have been the ones that you drilled in to us.
So to sum up, thanks for a great day and some great selling shots that I can use for life !
Thanks for the calm, informal and relaxed atmosphere throughout the day, in my opinion this enabled the 10 of us to take photographs without the fear of being analyzed as if taken by seasoned pro's, this helped our confidence as a group.
My impression of the training given was it was aimed towards each trainee being able to take better photos and give a real insight in to the world of event photography including equipment, workflows and marketing.
This was not a mass recruitment exercise and at no time did I feel under pressure to make any quick decisions that could ultimately have been regretted.
