Back in 2011, acclaimed wedding photographer Lisa Devlin started The Photography Farm. The idea was simple – a residential wedding photography workshop over three days. Included was a spectacular styled shoot, invaluable processing techniques and business school with special industry guest speakers. Since then, the farm has gone from strength to strength and with the edition of Farm Elements, a two-day class travelling the length and breath of the country, it is reaching and teaching more wedding photographers than ever.
This month sees an exciting new addition to The Farm family with the launch of The Barn, an online resource for wedding photographers. Alongside FXMedia, Lisa has been filming tutorials for over a year, pulling together an amazing tool for wedding photographers wanting to fill in any gaps in their knowledge. Easy to digest video tutorials show Lisa working with a real clients all the way through from their engagement shoot, the pre-wedding meeting and then at the actual wedding.
As well as filmed practical tutorials, also included are screen recordings showing you some of the most vital PhotoShop, Lightroom and Aperture techniques for successful wedding photographers, interviews with industry experts (like me!) and downloads including client questionnaires and contracts.
The Barn is a comprehensive and ongoing resource with fresh content added on a monthly basis. Lisa recognised the need to put her particular brand of training online for photographers to access in their own time and go back to again and again. Joining The Barn costs just £55 a month and subscriptions can be cancelled at any time.
So, wedding photographers, if I was you I’d be signing up right away!
