»Wedding Photojournalism & Social Documentary« mit Kevin Mullins
Der Workshop findet auf Englisch statt!
Since 2008, Kevin Mullins has been shooting a style of wedding photography widely known as »wedding photojournalism« or »documentary wedding photography«. This workshop is for photographers who want to explore the wedding photojournalism genre. It’s also beneficial for photographers who want to hone their skills for shooting candidly at weddings and even photographers who want to simply understand more about shooting families in a photojournalistic style.
This class will focus on shooting style, observation skills, gear, and post-processing. Kevin Mullins will discuss weddings, as well as his approach to »Day in the Life« family photography.
Alongside discussions about how Kevin shoots, the configurations he uses and why he uses them, there will be a focus on how to build a brand to attract the right clients, client acquisition, and education.
Through that, you will get a glimpse of how to use and understand human touch, emotion, and capturing the candid moments without intervention or staging. The workshop will also be about the do’s, the don’ts and working through each stage of the wedding to capture the storytelling images.
Later in the day, Kevin will talk about how websites, SEO and social media play an integral part in allowing him to build his business.
Kevin Mullins is a wedding photographer by trade with a passion for people watching. He wants his wedding photographs to be snapshots of real, uncontrived but tender moments in time. Weddings are where he plies his trade, but really it’s just »people being people« – they happen to be at weddings.
He shoots with small, mirrorless cameras and always with natural light only. This allows him to shoot the wedding from the inside out, rather than be the photographer looking in from the outskirts with a telephoto lens. He wants his clients to be taken right back to that moment in time when the image was exposed and see it from their guests eye view. It’s imperative to him that his clients don’t remember their wedding day as a fashion shoot with the photographer, but rather hopes they forget entirely about him – but in 50 years’ time when they are showing their grandchildren the pictures of their wedding they can point to real moments, real people, real photographs.
Kevin Mullins doesn’t pose or direct anything at all at a wedding. He sees his role as an observer and the curator of the memories: »I’m not there to make those memories, I’m there to capture them.«
Mullins is a Fujifilm ambassador and with that in his belt, he has spoken at conventions as far afield as Japan and Argentina and the USA. He has shot weddings in the United States and many countries in Europe.
