Love & Light

I don’t photograph weddings. I have shot precisely four of them, including a big Indian wedding that felt, for all 16 hours of it, that it would kill me. It takes a special kind of photographer to do that kind of gig and I’ve got nothing but respect for those that do. The best wedding photography takes killer instincts, a great eye, a love of story and moments, and a brain for logistics that I don’t remotely have. But if I were getting into weddings, I’d want Love & Light by Jen Bebb, one half of a couple that has been photographing weddings for 14 years and has been named among the top wedding photographers in the world by American Photo. Jen’s a great photographer and when it comes to weddings she’s been there done that over and over again – over 700 weddings. You couldn’t ask for a better guide to photographing weddings.

Love & Light is full of really solid wisdom, from the actual making of photographs, to shot lists, posing guides, and logistics help, it’s all there, and the book (a downloadable PDF) includes Evernote files of all the lists so you can load them onto your iPhone, iPad or Android for fast reference when you prep and shoot the day, checking things off as you go. If you don’t have Evernote, it’s a free app and the information you need to get it, and get started with it, is in the book.

Anyone can photograph a wedding, but doing it well, and doing it like a pro, isn’t easy. Love & Light gives you full access to the heart and mind of an experienced photographer and teacher, who levels the learning curve on what, who, how, where, and when to photograph during one of the most romantic, important – and un-repeatable days of your client’s lives.

Love & Light is over 120 pages long, includes full Evernote notebook files and if you pick it up before July 22 at 11:59 PM (PST) it’s yours for only CAD $10 instead of $12.

Study the Masters: Magnum

When Robert Capa conceived of Magnum Photos I suspect he had no idea what it would become. Founded in 1947 by Capa and Cartier-Bresson, among several others, Magnum has become a rallying place for excellence in photojournalism. Notable members over the years include Ansel Adams, Dorothea Lange, Eve Arnold, Steve McCurry, Elliott Erwitt, Ernst Haas, […]

A Beautiful Anarchy

  Colour outside the lines and make the best art of your life! To my core I believe that our lives can be lived boldly, intentionally, and as our truest work of art. I believe we are all capable of living extraordinary lives; that people like Gandhi, Picasso, or Mother Teresa, were ordinary people who […]

New eBook: Nightscape

David Kingham and I met in person for the first time recently, but even before we met I had the strong feeling he was my kind of guy. He lives nomadically in his truck with his dog, sleeping in hotels only when he’s running one of his popular night photography workshops. He’s definitely my kind […]
