This may seem like an odd post, but one of things that is rare at weddings, is the groom arriving in a fancy car. We always see the bride and bridesmaids arrive at the venue or church in beautiful cars, but rarely the groom.
Men and boys have always had a love for cars. We seem to obsess over them from an early age. (women too I know) so it makes sense where possible to hire something super cool for your wedding day. Anyone who does hire out supercars or film based cars please do get in touch by the way. I know of a few car companies who are great, and provide stunning cars, but they dont have super cars or cars from films (transformers) etc.
Here is a little boy from a wedding who loved the Ferrari his dad came in.
The wedding by the way was at The Secret Garden, gringley on the hill. It looks like they have a new website too so pop along and look.
So the groom arrives in this beautiful car. We took alot of shots.. well why not.
Thanks for reading..
Teaching photography skills has been a thought for some time. This year I will look at either a photography class, with a group of upto 5 or 6, keeping numbers low so I can work with everyone.
Or even 1 to 1 teaching. Maybe your struggling to get sharp images, the wrong colour and you have no idea what the other settings on your camera do. Don’t shoot in Auto forever and explore how creative you can be once you use the camera in differently and take control over what it does.
Yes, some settings allow for speed of use and can lead to great images, but for the most part its a great feeling to shoot fully manual and be in charge of every setting. I can help you see what you should see in a scene before taking a shot. Things to avoid, scene set up etc. For those with a basic skill already but want to learn how to use Off Camera Flash or studio flash I can look at that too, which is alot different to photography without flash, well in most cases. There are times when you can combine ambient light and flash to get something extra special. And in situations you may never have thought we use flash.
If this is of interest send me an email, ask questions. Its still in the thought stage so far, but 1 and 1 could be arrange now.
Hi and thanks for reading. Just a quick update today. I often get asked “do you over this or that area” and my answer is “I will cover a wedding anywhere” obviously the rates will increase a little for the travel but it means for those who live in Yorkshire but want to get married in the Lake District, or Scotland etc, you can have a local photographer there. A trusted one.
Although I’m based between Doncaster and Sheffield, I often work in Lincoln, Nottingham, Leeds, York. I really don’t mind.
I was at East Riddlesden Hall in December, great for a winter wedding, and around an hours drive. But I always add an hour to the drive time to allow for traffic issues etc.
Here are the highlights from that wedding.
