The increasing number of same-sex weddings has created a new demand, as well as an expanded revenue opportunity, for photographers.
Boston, MA (PRWEB) September 04, 2013
Same-sex Weddings for Photographers is a new, first-of-its-kind online video training course from Kristin Korpos of Nifty Knowledge Rocks. With same-sex marriage now legal in thirteen states and the District of Columbia, an exceptional number of gay and lesbian weddings are taking place across the country. The increasing number of same-sex weddings has created a new demand, as well as an expanded revenue opportunity, for photographers. But not all wedding photographers are prepared to photograph same-sex weddings. They face difficulty in understanding how to be a gay friendly photography business, what new traditions to expect at a same-sex wedding, and how to effectively market to same-sex couples. Photographers, while eager and excited about the emerging market of same-sex weddings, may also be intimidated.
Enter the video training course Same-sex Weddings for Photographers. Just released, this course goes beyond boring old book learning and features over five hours of video content, along with a variety of supplemental business materials. It is the first course to provide answers, education, and tips on both the business questions faced by photographers entering the same-sex wedding market, as well as posing and wedding day preparation questions.
This course is available for purchase on the Udemy learning platform:
Said Korpos: "Most modern photographers, while possibly lacking the confidence, are technically ready to photograph same-sex couples. Photographing same-sex couples (with a few tips from me) is very similar to photographing any two people in love. Attempting to see past traditional gender roles and heterosexual wedding traditions is more challenging and this course walks photographers through those concerns. I actually walk students through a large selection of my personal images from various same-sex weddings. But what really makes Same-sex Weddings for Photographers so unique is my coverage of business topics. I am excited to cover what it takes to ensure a photography business is gay friendly, even so far as to provide various documents I use in my own business, along with actionable marketing strategies focused towards reaching out to same-sex couples. This is an exciting time in history. As a supporter of both marriage equality and increased business revenue opportunities for photographers, I am excited to share my knowledge with the world.”
