We’ve all been to weddings. We’ve all seen the guy with the huge camera and tripod shouting at people to line up, pushing guests with cameras out of the way so he can get his shots. But take a more modern, enlightened approach to wedding photography… what makes the contemporary wedding photographer different? Why does he do it? How hard can it be?
I’ve decided to start writing about my experiences in the wedding photography because of several things:
- I used to write professionally
- I think the job of a wedding photographer is interesting, underestimated and misunderstood
- I think my approach to the job is different
- I have so much spare time on my hands
- I lie about the amount of spare time I have
- Please disregard everything after point 3
I have no idea what specifically I’ll write about. I daresay sometimes it’ll get very profound, intellectual and philosophical, because that’s partly me. But other times I expect it’ll be completely frivolous and even silly, because that’s also partly me. And ranting; expect that too.
So… there you have it. Don’t expect anything in particular. But then if you did, you probably wouldn’t bother to read this blog anyway. If you’re not reading this, then you smell bad, and I hate you. If you are reading it, then many thanks from the bottom of my heart, and I shall love you for ever more.
