Effective Strategies for Destination Wedding Photographers by Kenny Kim.
|| Paid Master Class ||
Instructor: Kenny was warm and energic. It was clear to see that we shared a passion for traveling and for destination weddings.
Pros: I came away with many great and unique marketing tips to book more destination weddings in the locations I want. Bali & Aruba here I come. Kenny also expressed emphasis on being a destination wedding photographer for couples who travel to your hometown location to get married. Something I had not considered before... His portfolio is AMAZING and a true inspiration to mine. You can view his website here: http://www.kennykim.com/
Cons: This class was too short. I could have listened to Kenny all day and would have loved to hear more specifics about his work-flow.
Overall Score: 5/5

Cons: Absolutely nothing!

The roaming photographer: How to fund your lust for travel by Kristi Odom
|| Paid Master Class ||
Instructor: Kristi has a heart of gold. I was immediately impressed with the way she walked around the room and introduced herself to every student. It's easy to see her compassion portrayed in her images. There was such great emotion captured between her clients that I would say that her images inspired my work the most from the conference.
Pros: This class was such a real and honest take on Destination Wedding Photography. It was refreshingly different from Kenny's class and I appreciated the female adventurer perspective. I also came away with wanting to develop my personal photography projects in a way similar to how Kristi has.
Cons: Absolutely none, could have listened to her all day.
Overall Score 5/5
