If you’re looking to improve your documentary storytelling, understand a little more about street photography and how that can influence your wedding work and generally spend a day with a fantastic guy who’s portfolio speaks for itself, book yourself onto this workshop!
I first met Matt a couple of years ago and since then, thanks to his support and advice, my work has completely changed. I always used to call myself a ‘documentary wedding photographer’, but I never really had a proper appreciation of what that meant until Matt started mentoring me. Since then, my work is unrecognisable! When I first started out, there was a general acceptance that the experienced shooters didn’t ‘share their toys’. Matt completely bucked that trend and has always been so open and generous with his time and knowledge. Not only that, he loves doing it and clearly gets a real kick out of watching someone grow and improve.
Quite honestly, I wouldn’t be where I am today without him (Yes, I know how dramatic and cheesy that sounds, but it’s true)! When I first reached out to Matt for some advice, I was just getting back into shooting weddings after a couple of years off to concentrate on the ‘day job’. Two years later, I’m on the verge of going full-time with the camera and living the dream. Matt has had such a huge part to play in that. Everything about my work has changed for the better: How I approach the day, how I work the scene, my awareness of everything in the frame, how to layer a frame and how to really focus on moments. Seriously, mise-en-scene = mind blown!
So, if you’re reading this and considering booking yourself onto Matt’s workshop, stop hesitating and get it booked! I promise you, you won’t regret it.
