Not blogged for a while so thought I may as well make a start this evening......
I was just looking through some files on my computer and organising and deleting some old one's when I came across this picture of Bam Nelson who is an amazing free runner. It was taken at Velocity Studios in Chorley owned by fellow photographers Nicola and Marc Huntingdon, on a training day with the very talented Gary Hill of GDH Photography.
As photographers, we feel regular training and updates is paramount no matter what style of photography you shoot as this enables us to give our clients a professional standard of business with perfectly styled photos which are edited to professional standards......after all, it's not just a matter of clicking the shutter! Time, care and consideration are taken in to all aspects of the photoshoot, styling, posing, lighting, make up, location, post processing.
Gary is an excellent mentor and is best known for his lighting and posing skills, he teaches with a passion for the industry and you always leave the session with a sense of achievement..........if you are a photographer, no matter what level, amateur or professional you really must attend his training days when they become available.
It's also important to train with various mentors as every professional will have a different style, they will have a different way of lighting using different techniques and so on........eventually we will develop our own unique style by taking little bits of knowledge and skill from those various mentors........anyway, I will leave you with those thoughts for now!
