Welcome to the This is Reportage blog, where we'll be sharing lots and lots of documentary wedding photography goodness. Check back frequently for the latest features…
We’re thrilled to have the fab Portugal-based TiR member Hugo Barreleiro on the site today, telling us all about this awesome partying capture of his. Really interesting insights about not missing moments, shooting no matter what the lighting, but also about the difference good lighting can make – with lots of supporting images too. A great read!
In the forty-second of our regular series of ‘This Is How…’, the fab Lyndsey Goddard shares her thoughts on how she got this recent Reportage Award. It was incredibly difficult to get an award, with just the top 2% of submissions becoming Reportage Awards in Collection One (Collection Two has a few days left until the deadline, so don’t forget to submit your favourite documentary captures and Stories soon).

For our forty-first ‘This is How…’ piece, it’s a real treat to have the fab Kristian Leven on the site today, taking us behind the scenes of this fantastic capture.

We’re also proud to be sponsoring his upcoming inaugural workshop in London, UK: ‘From Photographer to Storyteller’. Kristian shares some invaluable tips here on pre-visualisation, originality and creativity, technical advice, and more – he also shares his contact sheet from this series, as well as some supporting images; a brilliant read!
It’s an honour today to have the fantastic Soven Amatya on the site, taking us behind the scenes of his recent Reportage Award. Just the top 2% of submissions were awarded by our Collection One Judges, and Soven managed to bag two of them – an incredible achievement. In what is the 40th of our ‘This is How…’ posts, Soven shares great insights into capturing feelings and relationships, a breakdown of his flash setup, focusing on connections between people, and more…
