Jonny Draper Photography presents…
A two day Masterclass in photographing weddings & the business of wedding photography
in association with…
The Wedding Industry Awards North West Wedding Photographer of the Year, Jonny Draper, is hosting a two day Masterclass and shooting experience at one of the UK’s top wedding venues, Heaton House Farm in Cheshire.
Jonny will guide you through a full wedding day, from bridal preparations through until the first dance and you will get the opportunity to photograph a ‘bride and groom’ throughout the course of the day.
You will be entitled to use the images on your blog, website, Facebook and Twitter – this is an amazing opportunity to shoot at one of the UK’s most popular bespoke weddings venues under the direction of one of the country’s most talked about wedding photographers.
The bride and groom for the day have just been confirmed and Jonny is delighted to announce that they are….
‘The Bride’ – Jen Brook:
‘The Groom’ – James Taylor:
Having worked with Jen before, she was the only person Jonny wanted to be involved in the shooting day. Beautiful, professional, versatile and great fun too, you’ll have a blast photographing Jen!
Jen has recommended James for the shooting day and having chatted to him about what he can bring to the role of ‘the groom’ Jonny is already excited to see the results of the attendees photographs! Jen and James have worked together before in bridal shoots, so you can be assured that they are hugely comfortable together and this will come across through the intimate portraits you will be able to create with them.
Jonny is also delighted to reveal that top professional make-up artist, Gemma Hallowell, will be responsible for creating different looks for Jen throughout the course of the shooting day, giving everyone a great opportunity to shoot ‘a bride’ in very different situations with a very different look each time! Matched with a selection of dresses from Love Bridal Boutique, you’ll be able to take away a stunningly diverse set of bridal images.
Jonny will spend the first part of the morning demonstrating how he edits his photographs. Using images that he will have taken on day one alongside you, he will show you how he runs his workflow, ensuring he maintains a time-efficient, yet bespoke process so that each and every wedding is unique.
“The Business” of weddings and wedding photography is the day’s overall theme.
How best to generate & convert enquiries?
How to establish and build relationships with venues, bridal shops, wedding planners and other photographers?
What part can social media contribute to your business?
Sarah Heath, Heaton House Farm’s Marketing and Business Development Coordinator and co-owner, will speak from the venue’s perspective.
What does a venue look for in suppliers when deciding to add people to their recommended list?
What can you do as a wedding photographer to establish and develop relationships with wedding venues?
As well as Sarah, attendees will also hear from Emma Draper, Owner of Cheshire’s most exclusive bridal experience, Love Bridal Boutique.
Often, a bridal boutique is the very first place brides-to-be get in touch with. Emma will explain why it is crucial for wedding photographers to have a great relationship with bridal boutiques and how they can generate regular enquiries through these relationships.
Over the course of the two days, Jonny will be demonstrating how he creates his signature images, where he finds his inspiration for each wedding shoot, how he forms his relationships with his clients and how he continues to grow his business through networking, referrals, social media, word of mouth and through a whole host of other marketing techniques.
There will be time on each day for q&a sessions and Jonny promises that no question will go unanswered.
The two day Masterclass has been designed for wedding photographers who are ready to take their business to the next level.
Whether they’re just starting out in weddings or are keen to push their business further than they have before, Jonny Draper’s infectious enthusiasm, passion and commitment to all things wedding, will leave them chomping at the bit and desperate for their next wedding to come round so they can put into practice everything they have learned!
This is a one off Masterclass in 2013 and places are strictly limited. This will ensure that each and every person gets individual attention across both days.
The Masterclass will take place on Tuesday 5th and Weds 6th March, 2013 and places are available on a first come, first served basis, so drop Jonny an email for further information and to book your spot on this not to be missed wedding photography experience!
