Feedback from previous workshop attendees.

I try to attend at least 2-3 workshops a year to improve myself and to push my wedding photography business to the next level, so far, Steven Rooneys workshop stands head and shoulders above them all, from purely a hands on and learning point of view. If you are looking to gain more confidence in using Off camera flash your search is over. Steven Fearless Rooney is the go to man to learn more about off camera flash!…Fact!

I attended this workshop as both of us were really struggling to understand how flash works. We watched tonnes of YouTube videos but never really understood what to do. Steven explained flash in such a sensible clear manner that enabled me to understand how it works. You can only build on something from the ground up, when you know how it works. I now feel that we can put this into practice and build on the knowledge. So excited to get the speed lights and lots of bits n bobs out to create effects now! And have been putting some of the LR/Photoshop bits into action as well. Well presented, clear and have recommended the workshop to lots of photographer friends!

Steve delivered a course that was both interesting and fun whilst at the same time really well structured and thought out. I came away from the course feeling more confident and keen to try some new ideas out. Would 100% recommend.

This creative wedding photography workshop is a mixture of creative off camera flash techniques and creative and speedy editing. I will talk about my mindset and my approach to being successful in an increasingly competitive market place. Here are a just a few things that will be covered. You are welcome to bring a camera but it’s not essential.

  • Practical demonstration of creative off camera flash techniques
  • How I use OCF for each part of the wedding day and which light modifiers to use
  • Practical demonstration for creating bokeh and texture in portraits
  • In camera multiple exposures and digital composites
  • Speed up your workflow and get your life back
  • Creative editing in Lightroom and Photoshop
  • Self critique and choosing images for competitions, blog, facebook etc.
  • My own approach from enquiry to delivery

What will you get out of this?

I’ve been successful in the wedding photography industry for the past 11 years. I went full time 5 years ago and have been fully booked each year since. So I have a lot of knowledge and experience to share.

I was listed in the Fearless Photographers top 10 of 2016 and ranked number 1 in the UK by Wedding Photography Select 2014, 2015 and 2016. I’ve judged the Masters of Wedding Photography  competition and the WPS competition. And I used to be a teacher. So hopefully you’ll see that I know what I’m talking about and have the ability to pass my knowledge and skills on to you.

I edit all of my own work to a high standard and it usually takes me between 2 hours 45mins and 4 hours to edit a wedding. This speed is a result of thinking and working smartly and has come about as I have 3 children and not much time to edit.

I like to challenge the norm and question everything. I hope to pose some challenging questions and provide inspiration and motivation to keep you going for a good while.

Feedback from previous courses:

Steven is at the top of his game when it comes to the use of OCF. There was so much to learn and I will adopt certain parts into the way i approach weddings. If you want to learn from one of the masters go on this course! Andrew Griffiths

I have wanted to improve my off camera flash skills at weddings for a while. Steve showed me how he uses OCF at weddings and how it’s achievable to create incredible shots with minimal setup. Steve knows the subject inside out and he shares all his ‘magic’ on the course. I cannot wait to shoot my next wedding and to apply what I have learnt. If you want to improve your OCF skills, book on this course! James Tracey

Steve’s OCF workshop was absolutely brilliant. Really good theoretical content, great tips for the wedding day and a good chance to try some stuff in practice. Highly recommended! 🙂 Andy Zofka
