'Video Guy' Hard at Work

Does the photog ever snap you working and then let you have the shot? It's happened quite a few times to me - I find them useful to present the 'human' side of my business :)

Re: 'Video Guy' Hard at Work

Quite often the photog will take a shot of me working but I have never had one send me the image!!

For the same reason I never ask a photog to shoot DVD cover images for me ..you will never get the image!!

Re: 'Video Guy' Hard at Work

Chris -
The trick for DVD covers is to ask the bride. When *she* asks the photog for a few hi-res originals to be emailed to me for the covers, it always happens.

I can't remember the last time that didn't work for me. And I always give the photog attributions. So everyone's happy.

+ Tim.

Yep, ask the bride if you need photos for any reason. I shoot my own now, but back when I didn't, I rarely had trouble getting a full CD from the bride.

They always snap me from behind which shows my bald spot.

Re: 'Video Guy' Hard at Work

Getting old sucks Danny!! Remember the good old days when we all had a big mop of hair and the word bald wasn't even in our vocabulary !

Correct ..the photog has to obey the bride BUT most photogs take ages to even look at the photos and we deliver the bride's DVD's in 7 days so I take both Nikons anyway and just shoot 6 shoots that suit my crop too for DVD disk images, DVD covers and also menus. That way I have the pics immediately so there is no holdups
