|30 DAYS OF WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY WITH SUSAN STRIPLING
Success as a wedding photographer requires more than just raw talent and the desire to be a professional photographer. To survive in this highly competitive industry, you need strong business skills and a deep understanding of your craft. In this documentary wedding photography experience, Susan Stripling will teach you how to launch and sustain a successful wedding photography business.
During 30 days of step-by-step instruction, Susan will show you how to develop your business — everything from honing your creative vision to marketing tactics to studio management. Then, Susan will teach you the fundamental shooting techniques for every possible wedding scenario by inviting you along to an engagement session and wedding day and with real-life clients — not models! During the start-to-finish documentary coverage of the wedding day, Susan will teach you how she handles each part of the experience, from photographic technique to client care, all with zero re-takes or re-shoots. Susan will wrap up the 30 days with detailed instruction on post-production workflow, post-wedding marketing, album design, post-wedding sales, and much, much more.
By the end of this course, you will have accompanied Susan through every step of a wedding and will have the skills, mindset, and tools needed to make a living — and a name for yourself — as a wedding photographer.
Susan Stripling never knew that she'd end up a wedding photographer. Though she purchased her first camera in high school she went to college to study theatre and dance, obtaining a BFA in 2001. Shortly upon her move to New York city after college graduation Susan realized that the life of a starving actor was not for her and went on to consider several career paths. She waited tables, was a receptionist at a failing dotcom, worked in a Broadway theatre casting office, and finally found her love for photography when she began studying digital and graphic design.
Upon her move to Florida in 2001 Susan photographed her first wedding and was in love. The fantastic theatre and emotion of weddings moved her in a way nothing had before and her business was born that year.
Susan has photographed weddings all throughout the US, the Caribbean, South America, Finland, France, and the Bahamas. She's been published in Inside Weddings, Martha Stewart Weddings, Grace Ormonde Wedding Style, Bride and Bloom, Modern Bride, The Knot, Professional Photographer Magazine, The New York Times Style section, Rangerfinder Magazine, Capture Magazine, Elegant Bride, in Trade Publications for Nikon USA, and Town and Country Weddings. Susan's teaching career has developed as well; she has been seen at past Digital Wedding Forum conventions, gives private and group workshops throughout the USA, and has spoken at WPPI.
In 2009 Susan won third place in the Bride and Groom together category of WPPI's international yearly 16x20 competition. In 2010 she won first place in the Wedding Photojournalism category and the Grand Award in the Photojournalism division.
