One thing that Concern's me, I've only done one wedding, about to do a second reluctantly(long story and last time), I'm the first to admit that I don't have the confidence, Desire or skills to do weddings, but If I had taken the original images I would not even have given them the couple(Heads chopped off) as I would be totally embarrassed by that shot. And I am pretty sure most wouldn't either.
Giving them that shot alone would open you up so does anyone else think this could be a set up!. It does not ring true.

One report suggested that the customer had been given all images, unedited, on a disk.

If you looked at the out-takes from one of my wedding shoots, you would probably have discovered some that were even worse. One very good reason for never letting a customer have all the images.

Back in the film days you could not afford to make too many mistakes.

I'm a full time wedding photographer and cant decide either whether this is a fake media stunt by another clever marketing agency, or a completely incompetent photographer. Either way the more this type of thing is promoted the better for our industry as people will hopefully take a little more care with their booking.

Just today on a regular jaunt through Google for the competition I came across another new wedding tog, and no word of a lie the photos in their gallery are worse than that, and all hidden behind the charade of 'reportage' ie a crap photographer who will just catch stuff from a distance and turn it to black and white and it will then be called art ...

There are some absolutely appalling wedding photographers in the market at the moment, but that in itself is good for those of us who take our profession seriously and is not something to be concerned with.

How are you finding the market these days, it must be getting pretty competitive.

Its VERY competitive, but i am sure in these times that's much the same for most industries as everyone is feeling the pinch and trying to get the best value for money. However thankfully there are still a base of clients out there that understand the benefit of having professional experienced photographers to record their day, and although some may disagree i think we still provide good value for money too with the amount of time and effort that we put in.

To put it in perspective there is not a week goes by without another new regional wedding photographer appearing on google and I believe from my own estimations and research that their are around 300 practicing wedding photographers in the North East and maybe double or triple that again in amateurs who book weddings. Given to remain full time takes around 40-50 weddings a year those figures are a real eye opener as in 2010 there were approx 240,000 weddings in the whole of the UK - extrapolate that down to the north east and its maybe 10,000 weddings or less leaving a handful of weddings for each photographer.
