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 absolutely delighted to have the brilliant Belgium-based TiR member Sanne De Block on the site today, taking us behind the scenes of her recent Story Award – but not only does Sanne talk in depth about that, she also lets us know how she won a Reportage Award which came from the same wedding; double-documentary goodness! We can’t recommend this post enough, with fantastic insights into working in wet conditions (so wet that one of her cameras stopped working properly – eek! – and how she dealt with the problem), practical advice on how to capture in-between moments, lens and flash info, and much more…
Excited to have the fab Alex Miller with us today, telling us how on earth he managed to capture this bouquet-catching capture – an image which very deservedly won a Reportage Award in Collection Two. Alex shares some great insights into the circumstances which led him to attempt (and totally, nail, Alex!) such a shot, observation, composition and context, editing, and some really interesting thoughts on working as a solo shooter.
Fantastic to have US-based TiR member Shauna Benoit of K & S Photography on the site today, telling us about this emotional capture of hers. Great tips about pulling back to capture more context, her flash setup and lens choice – thanks a lot, Shauna!
Brilliant to have the fab Geeshan Bandara on the site today, taking us behind the scenes of how he captured this recent Reportage Award from Collection Four. Great insights into getting in really close on the dance-floor, going for the different angles/viewpoints, lighting, settings, pre-focusing and more…thanks so much, Geeshan!
It’s with great pleasure that we can announce the final of our five judges for Collection Five: The brilliant Christelle Rall. Christelle hails from South Africa and has captured weddings in thirteen different countries in her career so far – we’re honoured to have her judging our Reportage and Story Awards for us!
