As fellow wedding photographers in Singapore, we have extreme pride and passion in our wedding photography jobs. It is this very pride and passion we have in our job that pushed us to constantly improve our photography skills and reach new plateau. We want to dedicate this post to the aspiring wedding photographers to let them understand whether they are cut out to be a good wedding photographer. In addition, this post is also for the general public to know more about the wedding photographers in Singapore who are very seldom featured in the different medias.
So, what makes a good wedding photographer?
In our opinions, a good wedding photographer must possess these traits:
1. Deep passion for photography
A deep passion can push you far into any industry you venture into. It gives you the motivation and power to continue learning the trades and skills needed in the industry. Without passion, you will find yourself slacking around and not making full use of the time to upgrade yourself to stay relevant in the industry. Your photography skills will only improve greatly over time if you have the passion for photography. If you want to come in for the money, then I will suggest you try other industry as they is not enough to push you hard enough to attain a good level of photography skills.
A wedding photographer must have an eye for details. He must notice the small details on the objects or the backgrounds when taking pictures. Any slight change in the details may affect the whole picture. In addition, he must also be detailed when doing the post photo shoot editing of the photographs so that he will be able to produce fabulous wedding photographs for the customers.
A good wedding photographer is also a caring one. He must take note of the couples’ energy levels and moods throughout the photo shoot. If he feels that the couples may be a little tired or moody, he should call for a short break to let the couples recharged and freshen up a little. The couples will feel their hearts warmed and be appreciative of this caring effort. This will also tighten the bond between the photographer and the couples.
You can see that we only focused on traits and personalities of the person instead of skills. This is because we strongly believe that with a good personality, you will be able to acquire the relevant skills eventually and succeed as a wedding photographer. If you possess these traits, we welcome you to join Grandeur Wedding Studio (www.grandeurweddingstudio.com) as an intern to learn wedding photography skills from the experts. Soon, you will be qualified enough to handle the actual wedding photo shoots.
