If you follow my blog then you will know that that over the past year I have attended a number of wedding photography training courses run by Braintree photographer Jeff Turnbull, www.jeffturnbull.com. Jeff is an excellent photographer specialising in weddings and portraits but he also runs a number of different photography training courses, ranging from introduction to digital photography through to specialist courses in portrait and wedding photography. Like I said I have attended a number of these in the past, but recently I was flattered that Jeff asked me along to help out. He was running the first module of his wedding training, which included a shoot at ‘All Saints’ church in Rayne near Braintree in Essex.
There were about eight students altogether, who were a great lot. (I have to say I do enjoy the company and banter of other like mined photographers). The day itself was bitterly cold and without a doubt many of us began to feel it. The bride was brilliant though and she must have been made of tougher stuff than the rest of us, as she had on a flimsy wedding dress with bare arms and shoulders!
After the shoot at the church we returned to Jeff’s house for a very delicious lunch before moving on to bride and groom preparation shots, as well as detail shots and the cutting of the cake.
It was great for me to help out and assist others. A chance to use my training, knowledge and experience to help other who are venturing in to the business.
