Are you ready to take your documentary wedding photography to the next level?

It doesn’t matter if you’ve been photographing weddings for years or you’re new to the industry – I’ll help you take your visual storytelling to the next level.

Currently I have a few spots available for One-to-One mentoring. These are fully customised sessions and tailored to your specific requirements.

Here are some examples of subjects I’m more than happy to talk about, although nothing is off limits:

  • Influence of Street Photography

  • Composition Techniques

  • How to really work a room – Terminator Technique

  • Layering the frame

  • Mise-en-scène and how what you leave out is just as important

  • Moments and how to be in the right place at the right time

  • Working with a couple and how to get natural portraits

  • Portfolio Review/Critiquing session

  • Everything you need to know about Destination Weddings

I’ll share all the tips and secrets I’ve learnt over the past 10 years of shooting weddings – with absolutely nothing off limits. As well as all the practical shooting techniques I’m happy to talk about Workflow/Editing/Photoshop/Lightroom – and anything else you might want to know.

Teaching isn’t something I take lightly, it’s a great honour to be able to impart my knowledge onto someone else and to see them grow as a photographer and establish their own business in an ever competitive industry.

Kind words…

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.

Matt Ebbage,
