Every new year is a chance to improve from the previous years. One of my goals for 2017 is the get better at story telling. My blog posts will be a little bit longer than they have been the past years. Kicking off 2017 with Hanne and Erlend's wedding in July last summer.
This particular wedding was a new experience for me because it's the first wedding I have photographed as a second shooter. You see, last year I started doing mentoring for a few selected photographers to gain experience and testimonials so that I can start selling mentoring sessions. I had one Saturday off in July and asked to tag along as the second shooter for one of my mentor students of 2016, Lillian Nordbø. During the entire day I was covering alternate angles and tried to look at the wedding from another perspective than when I'm shooting myself. It was a lot of fun and I learned a lot. It also made opportunities to do some hands on mentoring and training in different situations throughout the day.
If you are a photographer and consider mentoring, send me a message :)
