This post is long overdue, but something I’ve been eager to share with you. I am excited to introduce my clients, fellow wedding vendors, and friends to my 2015 second shooter, Graydon!
I met Graydon at Madison College (formerly MATC). About once a year, I’m invited by a professor to meet the students and participate in their spring activities for first- and second-year classes. This usually involves critiquing portfolios or presenting a bit of info about working as a professional photographer. It happens right before the spring Portfolio Show, and I really enjoy getting to see some of the work coming out of this awesome program. In the meantime, I’m always on the lookout for talented students who might be interested in assisting or second-shooting for me.
It is always my preference to have one really great, really dedicated second shooter per season. If I can keep them longer, I will. Since I began my company, I have been really blessed to have some wonderful people on my team. These budding photographers have been eager to learn, excited to serve my clients alongside me, and passionate about creating great images for my clients to compliment my work. This year, that guy is Graydon!
I know my clients are going to really enjoy having Graydon along on their wedding days. He’s hard-working, fun to hang out with, polite, professional, and talented. When he came over for a final interview, he showed me an impressive collection of shots from a wedding reception where he had to step in and take over for a photographer who became ill and needed to leave. Once he showed me what he could do under pressure, I was ready to welcome him to my team. The work he has done so far is great, and I’m pretty pumped for the rest of our season!
Friends and clients, please join me in welcoming Graydon to my little corner of the Madison wedding industry. Can’t wait to see what’s in store for us this year- it’s going to be a good one!
