10 Sure-Fire Success Tips for Aspiring Wedding Photographers @MediaNovak
Whether you’re starting a part-time or full-time wedding photography business, your first competitive challenge is to have the right photography skills. For weddings, these are primarily portrait, lighting and photojournalism. Without these fundamental skills, it’s almost impossible to shoot your first wedding successfully; and one bad wedding could make it equally impossible to grow your business.
