Become a better Singapore wedding photographer

Wedding photography is a competitive niche. You must be really good at photography and knows how to delight your customers. You cannot afford to make huge mistakes throughout your career as a wedding photographer. Customers’ expectations are very high for their wedding photographs. You can bet that failing to meet their expectations will make them very upset and angry particularly because you only have one shot to make it right. The couples most probably will only marry once in their life, or so they believe at that point in time.

Therefore, upgrade your knowledge and skills to become a better Singapore wedding photographer. Consistently improve yourselves as a wedding photographer. You will never run out of amazing things to learn about!

One of the easier ways to become a better wedding photographer is to find yourself a good mentor. Frankly speaking, it is rather difficult to get a mentor in the wedding photography industry where everyone is reluctant to share their real skills and insights. However, fret not, there is one wedding studio that is very welcoming to mentor-ships – Grandeur Wedding Studio www.grandeurweddingstudio.com. Grandeur Wedding Studio offers a mentor-ship program where amateur photographers can learn under experienced wedding photographers in the studio. The condition? The apprentice must stay with the wedding studio for at least 6 months. To me, that’s a great deal. While completing assignments for Grandeur wedding studio, the apprentice will also be learning real skills. Win-win situation.

If you do not want to get a mentor, then you will need to learn things yourself. Read up on hardcopy books or electronic books you can find online. In addition, visit photography forums for photography tips. Be sure not to trust everything you read and to validate the claims. One way to validate the claims is to experiment with the insights yourself. Do not use a new idea during an actual wedding photo shoot for your customer when you are unsure of the results.

Career As A Wedding Photographer in Singapore?

Being a professional wedding photographer can be a really rewarding experience, although it is sadly seldom considered by most people who live in Singapore.

There is a very strong sense that only if you are a lawyer, doctor or financial employee that you will be successful and happy in Singapore but that is far from the truth. What makes people happy is doing what they love… and there are some people who truly love photography, but don’t dare to chase their passion. I recommend you to go boldly after your dream.

If you already love bridal photography, you’re going to love working as a professional photographer in this industry. This is because working as a photographer will be providing you with lots of freedom. You are free to choose clients and clients are free to choose you as well. You will be able to pick when you want to work (if you cannot make it on a particular client’s photo shoot date, then simply reject him or her). Of course, this also means that you will make less income if you constantly reject jobs.

If you love seeing people being truly happy and in bliss with each other, then being a wedding photographer is the best thing that can possibly happen to you. Every day during your job, you will be meeting couples and seeing them being all blissful together, during one of the most exciting and blissful periods of their soon to be married together lives.

My opinion is that, if you love photography, go become a wedding photographer by starting off as a freelancer. That would give you tremendous amounts of working experience. Although less explored, it does provide you with lots of fun (if you have passion for photography) and freedom – which will make you happy.
