It’s day three of our Holiday Giveaway Week, and we’ve got another incredible opportunity for photography education. Super-star wedding photography duo, Justin and Mary Marantz, are known and loved for their authentic, evocative and timeless images, and their genuine approach to business and life. They love teaching and sharing their experience with other photographers, so today they’re very generously giving away something special to one lucky winner:
– A seat at a Two-Day Walk Through a Wedding Workshop with Justin and Mary Marantz. A $1000 value!
Read on to learn more about this in-depth workshop, and to enter to win, just leave us a comment here letting us know why you’d love to learn from Justin and Mary. We’ll accept entries all week long and choose our winner randomly next Monday, December 19th, 2011. (The first Walk Through of 2012 will be Feb 11-12, at J&M’s home base in Connecticut, and additional dates will be released throughout the year. Please keep in mind this prize covers the workshop fee only and you’ll need to cover your own travel expenses to get to and from New England.) Good luck one and all!
Here ‘s how Justin and Mary describe their Walk Through a Wedding Workshop: “Walk Through is two full days of what it takes to be a wedding photographer. The first day will be all shooting & walking through each step of the wedding day, as if we were actually shooting it. But y’know, with better vendor meals. We’ll cover everything from the getting ready to a dark church to posing the couple to shooting the reception complete with killer details. We start bright & early at our place at 9:30 am talking about the “Why” and the first day typically goes until at least 10pm, where we wind back up at home for some night shooting. Throughout the first day we cover all of those trouble spots like posing an unruly bridal party, organizing the family shots, off-camera lighting at the church & reception, what to do if you only have 10 minutes for the portraits, and how to have a game plan to shoot the reception details before the get destroyed. We have everything set up to be just like a real wedding, so this is literally a one-stop shop for all those things you struggle with. But we’re not done. Then we’re going to bring it back on the second day where Justin & I will show you everything (the good, the bad & the ugly) that we got the day before. Then we’ll launch into the “business” day side of things with creating a signature style (including how we do all of our post-processing, especially those rich black & whites), brand power, building momentum and all the workflow & systems to back it up. Because we know what you know. That the shooting side of things is just the first part of creating a successful wedding photography business. And we just wanted to make sure you were getting the whole story.” Don’t miss you chance to enter to win!
