HERITAGE – WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP
HERITAGE: WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP
Croatian wedding industry can proud itself with a large number of quality wedding photographers. This is great news for anyone looking to plan their destination wedding in this Mediterranean haven. However, have you ever stopped to think where do all of these professional photographers come from? How did they get so good at what they do? How did they become „professional“ photographers?
A lot of effort and practice goes into a photographer’s job, as well as talent and education. Constantly working on their skills helps photographers stay on top of their game and in line with current trends in the wedding industry. Today, we bring the story of a workshop that took place recently, held by two prominent Croatian wedding photographers – Nina Anić and Maja Jokić.
Wedding photography is a special job, because each wedding photographer has that special kind of love, desire and excitement around photography. It is not just the service that they give to clients, there’s also that personal commitment that they bring into every business. Nevertheless, just having beautiful photos and lovely weddings is not enough. Wedding photographers need to be able to make a living from it. This was the main idea behind the workshop organized by Maja and Nina – they wanted to share their experience and knowledge on how to have a successful and profitable career as a wedding photographer.
This workshop welcomed photographers that are in different places on their career path – those who are at the beginning of their career or for those who want to raise their skills to a higher level. The goal was to share what they have learned over the years and give a wind in the back to their colleagues.
In the two-day workshop, they covered everything that a photographer needs to know about working in the wedding industry in Croatia. In order to cover all basis, a lecture was given by Ivana – a wedding planner from Promessi Wedding & Events, and Nina from Pixy With Love – who did a mock-up of a wedding dinner setup. All of the participants were able to take pictures of the setup and the “newlyweds”.
Workshops such as this one are one of the main reasons why Croatian wedding industry has so many professional photographers, who are on disposal for destination and domestic weddings. We hope to see many more of these workshops in the future.
