WHAT YOU WILL HEAR IN THIS PODCAST:
Something to avoid in videography:
Brock suggests to avoid over doing the staged and posed photos! Because he is more excited by the natural reactions on the wedding day, their team focuses on storytelling. These reactions are shown in his films, that so easily tell the story of the couple.
How to Best Handle the Photo/Video Relationship?
On a wedding day, videographers and photographers work extremely closely. The first thing to remember is that you are on the same team working toward delivering the best product to the couple. Having a mutual respect for each other and communicating well is what really helps the wedding day run much more smoothly. Open up the lines of communication with each other with even just a simple email to introduce yourself and make each other aware of any special requests. And on the wedding day, always talk through your needs and allow each other to get the shots desired!
Mistakes to Learn From:
What is a big challenge for entrepreneurs?
When you do not have a boss telling you what to do, it can be easy to miss deadlines. It is important to set your own goals and deadlines and stick to them.
Also, it can be a challenge to find the right people for your team. Finding people that you can trust to be responsible and respectful can be difficult. Take the time to search for the right members for your team! Once they get to the level you expect, it really adds to the clients' experience and business as a whole.
Advice for Creatives starting out?
Everyone has a dream job, but some people can get caught up in the dream aspect rather than the job. When you turn your passion into a career, it is still be a job and you still have to perform the less glamorous tasks.
“When you are up high, do not get too excited and when you are down low, do not get too down.”
Things change so quickly in this industry so try to find a middle ground with a level prospective. In the wedding industry specifically, one of the best parts is being able to meet and form relationships with other people who are like you…so cherish those relationships!
