>Yerbury Seminar- The Art of the Wedding

>A couple of days after the wedding in Perth, it was back through to Cumbernauld, to Loxley Colour’s lab and lecture theatre.

I arrived early (unlike me) and most of the delegates had already arrived. I had bumped into Nicola, our model for the day, in the loos and she was very nice. Pleasant and chatty…. and simply stunning, with flame red hair.

The first part of the day consisted of the very talented, very affable Trevor Yerbury giving us marketing ideas and business tips. This part of the seminar could have lasted all day as far as I’m concerned. For the most part, I already impliment the ideas being discussed. However, there were a few real gems…. ideas which I will be unashamedly stealing.

We broke for lunch and then made our way outside for the posing element of the day. Our models for the day…. Nicola joined us, along with Chloe… a very very pretty girl and Steven, whom I had met at the Yerbury’s previous Loxley seminar.

This is where it began to get chaotic. There were around 65 delegates and MOST had cameras with them.
We had been told prior to the seminar that we could take “reference photos”, basic snaphots for us to refer back to for posing ideas. Great in theory, but there were just too many delegates, many of whom made their way to the front and remained there… making it impossible for a number of us to see or hear the advice being given.
This was a real shame, as I was there to learn. I like to work quickly, particularly at weddings, all of the group shots get rushed through and I like to work reportage/ candids. I really do want to learn how to pose people properly though…. in a way that doesn’t make them look like they belong in the littlewoods catalogue. I need to learn patience, to be patient with myself…. but I also need to master the posing of the human form….. something Trevor and Faye Yerbury are real masters at.

I will very definately book another seminar or workshop with Faye and Trevor…. they are delightful and I believe they think along the same lines as me…… classy, classic and simplistic images, that stand the test of time….. that is where I want my photography to be…. and I will strive to deliver.

I have added a few snapshots below to give and atmosphere of the day, and PROPER photos of proceedings can be seen here: http://www.yerburystudio.com/yerbury-wedding-photography/wedding-the-business-the-art-loxley-25th-october
