Weddings- Commercial work is important. Whilst studying my degree, I have taken the opportunity to create a small business for myself to earn some extra money, and experience enhancing my portfolio. Weddings were a new task for me and being the photographer can certainly be intimidating, but after the events I grew as an individual and photographer, by gaining the confidence to direct a large group of people and work with the newly weds on their special day. The pressure is on to get the shots they require and it is very different to a self projected shoot that I have had to do for the degree.
