This week I was very fortunate to find one of the last remaining spaces on Kevin Mullin's photojournalism photography course.
I have been a huge fan of his approach to capturing a wedding and some of his images are among the best wedding photo's I have ever seen.
The day long course took place in Amersham Studios in Buckinghamshire so although it was a fair distance to travel for a one day course, I had not ventured the furthest as there were attendees from Belgium and also one from the USA! That is how good Kevin Mullins is.
He has won numerous awards since he began in 2008 and is a Fujifilm ambassador, and has traveled around the world giving talks on his photography approach, and on behalf of Fujifilm.
I wanted to attend one his training sessions to learn more about both the style that is often referred to as 'Documentary' or 'Candid' or 'Photojournalism' photography, and also to collect advise and tips of the business of wedding photography and how to make mine develop. However it is described it is one that I'm a big fan of. I would never copy a fellow photographer but try to take inspiration from one so successful.
I'm sure Kevin wouldn't mind me adding a couple of my favourite photographs from his collection that best demonstrates this style if I provide a link back to his website.
The approach is completely candid, nothing is ever staged and so the expressions, reactions and moments that are captured are completely natural. It's all about looking out for expressions, touches and interactions.
Looking through Kevin's website as some of his many hundreds of weddings that he has shot all around the world, just makes me want to get out there and start shooting.
I love his work and will take as much inspiration from it as I possibly can.
