This book has taken me months to write (far too long as my wife Nicki would say), and is the culmination of things that I have learned along the way in my 33 years as a full time professional photographer.
This book is the kind of book I wish I would have had when I launched my own wedding business in 2002. Even though I had spent the first 19 years of my career in daily journalism, the wedding photography business is very different. Photography skills are a given, of course, but being a wedding photographer that is merely the start. As I learned since then that marketing and sales are critical to the long term success of any photo business. It is a constantly evolving business too and you have to stay current with trends in both photography but also marketing and other business practices.
This book reviews the tools that I use and recommend, that I use and aims to help you find what you need to be in the wedding photography business (since I am a Sony Artisan and sponsored by Sony I talk specifically about those Sony tools that I use in my business though DSLR photographers can utilize their own preferred brand).
I have never been more excited about photography as I have been over the course of the past two years. The tools have changed so much and allow us to do things that I only dreamed about and wished for when I started in the early 80s!
Being able to send photographs wirelessly from my Sony camera —> phone —> to the web and worldwide publication would have made my life as a photographer on a deadline SOOO much easier.
The smaller Sony mirrorless cameras make it easier to carry them through the long hours of a wedding and are a welcome relief to shoulders and backs.
The ease of shooting professional video and audio (and even 4K video on the new a6300) allow me to enter a new realm of creative expression and allow me to be truly a complete storyteller (stills | video | audio).
It is exciting times and I hope that you will find this book helpful to you as you start a wedding photography business or evolve your wedding photography business if you are a more experienced photographer.
