p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · First wedding (Second shooter position)


Hey all,
I've been a photographer for a couple years now doing mostly portraits and newborns but have been wanting to branch out into wedding photography as I feel this could be much more diverse and rewarding. I recently graduated with a useless degree (BA in Psych), and am really at a crossroads in my life as to what I should pursue. I feel my strong passion for photography may be pointing me in this direction so Im going to give photography a thorough shot. Im very eager to get into weddings and always wanting to learn more and beter my craft. I recently did my first wedding as a second shooter over in Philly with Simon from these boards (great guy!). Here's a couple favorites from the day. Any kind of critiques or wisdom to pass down would be gratefully appreciated.

-Also I understand its not an easy business, but Im certainly willing to bust my ass. I traveled to Philly from Long Island and back in the same day just so I could get a second shooter job. Many of the photographers I tried to contact here on Long Island either never got back to me, had no positions, wanted someone with a wedding background, and actually had people say they didn't want to "train the competition"
Thanks all

With work like this you should have no problem landing second shooting jobs. Very nice!

Fantastic second shooter work. I'd hire you.

As for C&C, one of the biggest things newer wedding shooters have trouble with (I did, back in the day) is consistent post processing. Finding/developing your style is definitely a process, and evolution is natural. My best advice would be to produce each wedding consistently throughout the whole set. A few of these don't match up.

...and please number the pictures you post! It makes specific C&C much easier.
