...can lead to nice gigs :)

Hi all

I've made quite a few wedding photographer promos/behind-the-scenes now, but I wanted to share with you one of my personal favs...shot a couple of weeks ago at 'Photography Farm'

p.s. if any of you lot would like a B-T-S film next year, just holler!

Nice one! Nice location too - I've done quite a few of these over the years. Seminars/City/wedding/urban graffiti etc. I even produced a complete photo tutorial mixed down from a few and sold the DVD in a photography mag.
If there's serious tuition with poses/F numbers etc they sell well.

Why not contact tog mags with all your details and a sample tog showreel? If they're running a wedding feature they'll likely want to give (they always need these) you some editorial and you could hopefully a negotiate a free ad in return.
It can only be good for bridging the tog/video gap. Many togs can be far too precious to see the HUGE benefits video can bring to their own marketing.
Instead of "hey, look at our great photos" it can be "Hey, look how we operate - Fun, friendly and classy photos too".

great advice branny, i appreciate it.... it just so happens i have a big article about wedfilm in an upcoming major photography mag, so i'll see how togs feel about that, then perhaps go from there with another article ... trouble is, i hate writing :)
