I am delighted to announce we recently signed contracts with one of the UK's finest wedding photographers - Kerry Morgan to write a book on wedding photojournalism. Kerry, up until last year pretty much kept herself to herself, but having attended the DWF convention in Phoenix decided that she should really get to know other photographers having been in the industry for 14 years! Her work is simply beautiful and anyone who has met or spoken with her will be amazed at how insightful she is when looking at images.
There are many books on PJ but very few written by a lady. I personally believe that ladies see the world a little differently from men and this especially extends to weddings. I wanted to publish a book that took readers through a wedding from a ladies point of view. Not only is this enormously helpful to men (how many guys take amazing details shots?) but also invaluable to other women for them to enhance their skills. Kerry was the obvious choice.
The book will be full of insightful knowledge and chapters will contain information on:-
- Shooting storytelling images that will connect with the bride.
- Shooting with empathy and understanding providing the couple with a greater emotional attachment to their images.
- Choosing where to shoot from for the greatest storytelling impact combined with the best light and composition.
- How feeling an image, not just seeing it will give you stronger pictures.
- How to stop shooting snap shots and start shooting pictures that tell stories and sell.
- How to create magazine style details that brides will love (as well as editors!)
- Album presentation for wedding photojournalism
- Post-production that adds to the impact of your storytelling.
“It is my belief that those that become excellent at photography do so because they seize every opportunity to be gain more knowledge about photography and educate themselves.
Those that fail do so because they spend their time defending what they think they know and are not open to learning. If they were they would almost by default become better photographers and ultimately make more money.”
Our goal at Oliver-Cameron is to publish a series of books which everyone can afford which will impart knowledge and information to the reader. It is up to you if you decide to "Invest in Knowledge" for what is effectively the price of a small reprint.
Wedding Photography - A Guide to Photojournalism is 7x5" with 208 pages. It will be released in July and is available to pre-order now from www.oliver-cameron.com for £10 with inclusive P&P.
