Filmmaking For Photographers
Session description: Trying something new can be scary but good things happen when you push yourself into the unknown. Since 2013 I have introduced optional video highlights to my wedding photography business. Without any previous filmmaking or editing experience I was totally relying on my knowledge of photography and my camera to create films for my clients. I wanted to offer something different from a videographer and to tell something extra from my perspective as a photographer. I wanted to shoot entirely handheld and switch between the two freely so it didn't interfere with my photography too much. I knew that my workload was already heavy so I needed it to be manageable alongside my existing workflow.
Over the past few years I have come to love shooting videos that my clients love and that bring people specifically to my business. I am so excited to pass what I have learnt onto Snap attendees and inspire you to try something new which could be the next step in your businesses.
As photographers most of us have cameras which are capable of switching easily from stills to video so not only can you bring in extra revenue to your business but you can get more value from the kit you already own by using to its full potential. I will be sharing my tips for preparing to shoot video, shooting handheld, how to switch between and prioritise moments on a wedding day, how to manage your clients expectations, how to use video to market yourself, music choice and licensing, managing workflow and more.
I want to inspire you to take the knowledge and kit you already have and develop your style in a whole new medium.
After this session participants will be able to...
- Diversify their business without extra investment
- Manage client expectations
- Use video to market their work
- Find a balance between video and photos during key moments
- Shoot handheld with reduced camera shake
- Properly license music for video
- Create edits with narrative and energy
