I will be presenting my program Walkabout Weddings to the Indianhead PPA regional chapter on April 12. The location is still being worked out…as soon as it has been firmed up I will post more information here on the blog.
What is Walkabout Weddings? Here’s the scoop:
If you are stuck in a rut with your wedding photography or bored by doing the same things over and over, then it is time to clear your creative cobwebs and find a new direction in your photography by doing a wedding walkabout. The term “walkabout” is derived from the spiritual journey undertaken by Australian aborigines to “find themselves”. I’ve applied the term both figuratively and literally to my wedding program. If you are stuck in a rut, sometimes you need to step back, clear your mind and open yourself to new ideas and new directions. Take a little professional and personal walkabout to get recharged. I also literally apply this concept to every wedding that I do: I do a walkabout reconnaissance of the area, looking for unique, unexpected, dramatic, or cool spots to take the bride and groom and create my Urban Chic style of fashion inspired images. These serve to set my work apart from the competition and more importantly appeal to today’s brides. And you don’t need to be in a big city to create this look; the necessary elements appear everywhere, even in the most rural of areas.
So blow your creative didgeridoo and get ready for a walkabout to transform your wedding photography.
