Don’t Make These Mistakes When You Hire A Wedding Photographer

Producing a wedding is an expensive thing. Having a budget is a very important aspect for this kind of production, but how do you build your budget? You will spend money on the venue, the decor, the dress, the catering, lights and DJ but non of this will stay. A day after the wedding all […]

Wedding Photography Tips | 10 Mistakes Wedding Photographers Make

About a year ago I wrote a post titled 10 tips for an Indian wedding photographer which I though was a good introduction to the field of wedding photography in India. A week later I added a second post with a few more tips  on how to be a better wedding photographer and stand out in the crowd. […]

For Wedding Photographers – Post Production 07

We continue with the post production for wedding photographers Tuesday column on it’s seventh edition and back to Udaipur at high noon. It was a Mehendi party at the Guava gardens of the Leela Palace. People were hanging out by the lake  and the sun was high in the sky. I knew I was going to […]

For Wedding Photographers – Post Production 06

After a break we took from this column last week to review the Nikon D750 camera we now back with number 06 of creative post production for wedding photographers. Following the review last week it only makes sense that we look into the D750 files this time. It is in a way a bit unfair to the […]

Nikon D750 Camera Hands-On Review

Full disclosure before I start; I did not pay for the Nikon D750 so you are free to think that I am biased. I might be. Nevertheless, I am not going to try to sell you anything. This is also not going to be a statistical comparison or a technical review of the pixels and […]

For Wedding Photographers – Post Production 03

This is the third post of creative post production for wedding photographers. This time it is an image from a destination wedding in Udaipur. A good example of how an image that is seemingly not good to start with can turn out to be rather fine, albeit rather kitsch I must admit, with some Lightroom attention.

Wedding photography can be a lot more forgiving in terms of the amount of post production we apply to our images than photojournalism will ever be. Yes, we are supported to tell the truth, but no one will be mad at us it we make it more beautiful.

For Wedding Photographers – Post Production 02

Last week I posted a first in a series of posts on creative post production for wedding photographers and I’m happy to continue. I hope that this column grows to become a tool for both inspiration and technical solutions for wedding photographers struggling with Lightroom post production. As I mentioned last week, I will be sharing before […]

How to be a better wedding photographer and stand out in the crowd

You and I want the same thing. We want to be great at what we do and we want people to know it so that they come to us and pay us lots of money. However, most people are swimming in the shallow waters of mediocrity and have no idea what to do next in order to climb the next step on the ladder to success.

10 tips for an Indian Wedding Photographer

I have been a photographer for many years now but only got involved in wedding photography in India back in 2007 when I started working on my book on Indian weddings. The market of wedding photography in India was very different back then and I was possibly the only Indian wedding photographer who covered weddings in […]

How to behave with a photographer

I usually write for photographers but this post might actually be slightly different in the sense that it is meant more for the person on the other side of the line who is looking to hire the services of a professional photographer. As in everything else this is a two sided thing and as photographers […]
