Photography and Money: The Business of a Wedding Photographer

March 19 – 20, 2012, 10:00 conference

Why is it that some wedding photographers can sell their photos for the price of a good car, while others sell them for the price of soup? How, amid frenzied competition, do some surpass others? These questions was answered by Western and Russian photographers at the conference, “Photography and Money: The Business of a Wedding Photographer,” which was held at Digital October on March 19th and 20th.

Over the course of the two days, Digital October hosted 48 seminars and training sessions on the photography business, shooting, and developing. Russian and foreign photographs made presentations, along with lawyers, business coaches, and experts in promotion and Internet technologies.

Conference attendees learned how to shoot in any conditions, develop images quickly and in a quality manner, create wedding collages, and come up with creative photography for couples. In just two days of training, you got:

  • experience that is usually obtained over the course of a season;
  • knowledge of how to make money off wedding photography;
  • a portfolio of wedding photos in exclusive interiors in Moscow.

American photo industry stars David Beckstead and Jim Garner headlined the conference. David’s presentation was entitled, “How Can You Break Loose of Standard Wedding Photography and Create Your Own Style?” Jim talked about how to win wedding photography contests and what kinds of photography most often win. A full list of presentations can be viewed on the speakers’ website.
