I was over the moon to be invited to teach another course for local photographers in Bridgend this evening, and I’m looking forward to seeing everyone from Bridgend Photographers Facebook group very soon.
This is the third course I’ll have run for them and there seems to be a real hard-core of photographers in the area keen to improve their knowledge and skills.
The first course ran at the beginning of the summer and I spent a few hours teaching the attendees how to cope, when forced to shoot in full sun.
RandellJohnPhotography versus Uncle Bob
I’ve had to cope with my fair share of iPad toting guests while photographing weddings, and unfortunately had to remind a few guests that they are there to enjoy the wedding and not stand in as an uninvited second photographer, but the woman in this video takes the biscuit.
Please don’t be that annoying person at the next wedding you attend, switch off your phone, put your camera away and just enjoy the day.
It’s why the bride and groom invited you, and paid a professional to take the photographs.
I had the pleasure of photographing Viv and Claire’s wedding last weekend at Llansaintfraidd Church, near Aberkenfig, on what turned out to be one of the warmest day’s so far this spring.
The day started at Soul Haircutters Salon, in Bridgend town, where I met Claire and her bridesmaids for an impromptu shoot at nine in the morning.
Gez and Nicola’s Wedding At The Coed-Y-Mwstwr
The Coed-Y-Mwstwr Hotel was an ideal venue for Nicola and Gez’s wedding.
April 19th 2014 is a day I shall remember for a very long time indeed, not just because it was such a glorious spring day, but because of the wonderful memories I’ll have of photographing this fantastic couple.
Randell John Photography – Covers Local Business Event.
I had a great afternoon photographing the official opening of Llangynwyd’s Village Hall.
Originally built-in the late 1800’s, over the past decades the building fell into disrepair after its previous owner an artist passed away.
It was eventually bought by the council four years ago, and with the help of a local fundraising and a government grant from the Bridgend County Borough Councils, Rural Development Department, the hall has been restored to its former glory.
Wedding Photos – When it all goes wrong!
Photographs NOT BY RandellJohnPhotography.com
I’m publishing this post with the permission of the bride and groom concerned, and was actively encouraged to do so by them.
I thought long and hard before I wrote this very long post, but decided to go ahead with the express idea of educating anyone who’s getting married, and specifically to warn them about the inherent pitfalls of choosing a wedding photographer based on price alone.
