    First, I want to thank Scott for inviting me to be his guest blogger for the second time here at Photoshop Insider.  It’s always an honor and a pleasure to make his accommodation.  Also, let me say that today’s post in no way reflects the views of “this station.”  Today’s post is meant to be more than a social observation, but rather a revelation of what’s happening in the field of wedding photography today, why it happened, and what can wedding photographers do about it. It may seem to be a “Doom and Gloom” read but is not meant to be. It is meant rather to be an “eye opening” read that I hope shakes all sense of complacency from our bones, and fires us up to do something about the current state of affairs.

    As I researched and wrote this post, I was amazed by the confluence of circumstances that have completely changed how most wedding photographers have done business for years.  Most amazing was the speed at which these confluences collided and changed things in just a matter of 24-36 months! And all these changes mean that we must do business in a brand new way if we wish to succeed.

    This post is meant to be Part 1 of a two part post. The reason, as I continued my research and writing I was topping out over 2,900 words and I still had about 1,500 to go – whew!  So, although most of this post reads like “Doom and Gloom” for wedding photography, I scatter tiny rays of hope throughout. Part 2, to be entitled “Dreams and Opportunities” or something like that ;) , will point wedding photography readers towards concrete strategies about how to grow their wedding photography business stronger and better than ever!

    I hope you enjoy today’s read in the social observation context in which it was written.  Read on if you dare….

    My name is Ted Waitt, and I'm an editor at Peachpit Press / New Riders. Since 2004, I've had the honor and privilege of working with Scott Kelby, as well as his extremely talented and hardworking team in Florida. For many years now, Scott's blog has been the first thing I read every day—and I suspect I'm not alone. I'd like to thank Scott for the opportunity to blog here. And I'd like to publicly thank him for all of the opportunities that working with him has afforded me over the years. Thank you, Scott. I've had a DSLR for just under three years now. I don't shoot nearly as much as I'd like, but I do venture out in San Francisco somewhat frequently. These solo, meandering photo walks are often as much about taking pictures as they are a chance to just get…

    ONLY SHOW YOUR BEST WORK It is an honor to be back here on Scott's blog. The last time I was here the guest blogger idea was in it’s infancy and a lot has happened since then.... but some things have stayed the same. My guest blog post in 2008 was centered around shooting Billy Idol in concert, so I though it would be cool to share the experiences I've had with them since then. I have been lucky enough to shoot Billy Idol five times in 2010. This blog post has to do with how that became possible and how it led to being able to photograph Billy Morrison at the release of his signature Gibson Les Paul at NAMM this last weekend. It really is a very simple concept. I only show my best work. It sounds easy enough in theory, but…

    Photo by Joe McNally "Terry have you ever done a post or video on your photo storage workflow?" This was a question one of my Adobe Colleagues, Tim asked me last month and after a few moments of blank stares I replied, "hmm, um, no." The reason this caught me off guard is that while I have certainly talked about photography, computers and the importance of backup over the years on my own blog, I haven't really put it all together specifically for photographers. I thought this might be a timely topic for my guest spot here. This is also the time where I have to give one of those Scott Kelby like disclaimers and say "This is MY workflow. It's the way I do it. I understand that your workflow and requirements may be different. So take it for what it's worth." Your…

    Photography is All About Exploration! You might not have been aware of it, but ever since the first moment you thought about getting into photography, you’ve been an explorer. And ever since the first time you put that camera to your eye, you’ve been exploring science and mechanics, physics, emotions, the psyche, yourself, and you probably didn’t even know it. And it’s this exploration that brings us all the rewards that communicating with our fellow man can bring and it’s a lot. And as with any form of communication, sometimes the message doesn’t quite get across the way we intended. This sends us back to looking for more answers, exploring still further with our camera. I can think of no grander pursuit! How can I, a fellow explorer, help you on your journey? The pressure is on, to write a post that accomplishes more…

    How's that for a headline? I had actually announced that today would be a "holiday no-guest blog," but then Nikon just released a 15-minute video as part of their NPS (Nikon Professional Services) Pros Spotlight series, where Joe and I discuss a wide range of photography topics, and Joe is as funny as he is insightful. There is no "interviewer" per se--it's just Joe and I, and we go back and forth discussing the topics, and it was a lot of fun (which, of course, describes any interaction with Joe). We talk about everything from our favorite lens to what we see happening in camera technology to our backgrounds in photography, and much more. Here's the link. Hope you guys enjoy it. -Scott P.S. I apparently was having a bad "hair mousse" day when this was shot, which diminished my usual on-screen beauty by…
