Off camera flash courses and mentoring

When I first started my wedding photography business I was absolutely terrified of using flash. I bought my first flash second hand and it was a canon something-or-other. I had no friggin clue what it really was, how to work it other than to pop it on top of my camera in the hotshoe and turn it on. I was terrified of pressing any buttons and going into any of the menus made me feel as if I was holding a live bomb!

After trying to use it for the first time was an epic failure it sat in my camera bag for a ridiculously long time. I decided I was a 'natural light photographer' and that flash was the devil. Fast forward a few years, a number of workshops, many experiments and failed attempts, second shooting for other flash-heavy and confident photographers and now the thought of turning up to shoot a wedding without my flash equipment would send my anxiety levels through the roof! Yes, mastering flash isn't always easy, it requires practice and patience - however, when you've got the basics right you can confidently control and create light that matches your brand. I know my style has transformed over the years and a lot of my work clearly uses flash, but it can also be used very subtly, get you out of iso10000 situations and give you the confidence to shoot at any wedding venue at any time of year. Someone wants to book you for a 4pm ceremony in December? I want you to be able to say 'bring it on!'
