    OK - the figure is a guess as I couldn't find Practical Photography's ABC ratings to discover how many amateur photographers read each issue.

    But the March 2013 issue carries a superb 7-page article on the subject of "Shoot your First Wedding" which begins with the premise tha "most keen photographers" will be asked to shoot a wedding from time to time.

    Great advice for anyone wanting to ensure that they do a "professional quality" job when that request comes although it does emphasise that producing top results is hard work. I would have liked to have seen more detailed advice on the presentation of the photographs rather than just the shooting.

    I can well believe that there are 80 000 new photographers plying for trade!

    Pete's right - desperate times call for desperate measures.... get all the "keen photographers" shooting weddings with help from PP!

    Oh lordy, can you imagine all the "Uncle Bob's" itching to get among those of you who do wedding photography for a living! Grin

    No - but from previous threads on this Forum, I guess many are.

    So 80,000 become 38,000 - perhaps 10% want to do this and not landscapes etc. so 4000 who then see about liability insurance, backup bodies etc etc - so this might divide by half? there are perhaps 1000 towns in England (maybe 500 more in the rest of the UK?
    So maybe 2 or 3 people in each town might consider this?

    Perhaps that figure is right, but with the vast majority of them I'd use the word 'photographer' in the loosest of senses.

    In the end the only people loosing out here are the bride and groom when they get they poor photos back.
