Does this sound like you?:

You’re a photographer who's been asked to take photos at a friends wedding. They asked because they’ve seen some of your nice images, but you’re naturally concerned that you’ll let them down.

You have a few weddings under your belt, and want to gain confidence, improve quickly and develop your own style

You’ve photographed quite a few weddings but want to learn some new creative ideas

...or maybe you’re just interested in learning how to become a great wedding photographer

If so, then this course is for you.

Bernie takes you through the whole day from the bride getting ready to the first dance.

Unlike Bernie’s other courses this is not a ‘live’ course, instead Bernie talks through his images of past weddings, and demonstrates how he got the shots. Every images shows the camera settings. Here’s some reviews:-

This course was exceptional, and provided just what I was looking for. I wasn’t interested in the business of wedding photography, but just the creative and technical aspects of getting memorable photos. The ideas and cheat sheets were great. Understanding his focal length and aperture choices was critical to my understanding of the process. I also enjoyed the instructor so much that I will have to take some of his other courses just for fun. I can’t thank him enough for sharing his experience. Brilliant! Royce Slick

I found this course to be the most informative and well presented online course I have seen in some time. Brad Weeks

So many photography courses have "filler" sections about equipment, planning, and editing. This course is purely about shooting, and I love it! D Murphy

I like his relaxed delivery, numerous examples, sharing camera settings and most importantly of all, his thought process on what he was trying to achieve. I also like his honesty in the fact you will not always achieve a 100% hit on your shots but not to let it phase you. Well recommended. Update Nov 2018 Watched again just to avoid skill fade and look at the quality of the images with high ISO and no flash. I have ben caught out with slow shutter speeds but really get worried about going over 2000 ISO creating too much noise and providing too many B&W images. Guess if others do it, why shouldn't I. William Bean
