#58 Sam Hurd: The magic of creative wedding photography

October 23, 2019

Welcome to episode 58 of Shoot Edit Chat Repeat, the podcast for people photographers. Hosted by two leading UK portrait photographers, Vicki Knights & Eddie Judd.

This week we are chatting to renowned US wedding photographer, Sam Hurd. Sam is known for his creativity and pioneered prism photography and the technique known as Ring of Fire.

Here are some of the topics we cover…..

– Why Sam creates all of his techniques in camera and not in post-production

– His favourite creative techniques, and why he chose to share these with other photographers

– His advice to photographers who feel like they’re stuck in a bit of a rut and want to try and be more creative

– What advice he would give to wedding photographers who have been given a huge shot list by their couples rather than being trusted to be creative and get on with their job

– Why he isn’t a fan of photography awards

– Why he switched from Nikon to Canon mirrorless

– Whether he believes photographers need to have multiple streams of income in order to stay in business

And lots more!
