About The Class

Learn wedding photography the Marcus Bell way! Marcus Bell is coming to creativeLIVE to teach how to prepare for the wedding, shoot emotional documentary images, and create the 'weddingscapes' that Marcus's clients love: a beautiful combination of wedding portrait and gorgeous landscape. Even if you're not shooting in majestic outdoor locations, he'll teach how to approach urban, boring, and common locations with fresh eyes, making the best of even the most mundane by finding the best light. Marcus will also teach what makes a good photograph and post-production techniques to create award-winning images and pictures that sell!

    I can honestly say this is my favorite Creative Live workshop ever. I had to purchase it just to be able to rewatch whenever I want. Marcus is very passionate and relatable in such an inspiring way. My confidence has grown 10-fold. I found it helpful that he not only shares what he does technically but he talks about how he thinks as well. I especially loved the fact that he drives home the point of making an emotional connection with your wedding images. I also came from a photojournalism background and found myself relating to so much of what he said about needing to learn different styles and be able to interweave them thoughout the day in order to tell the story. Wonderful!

    Marcus is so passionate about wedding photography. Truly inspirational, definitely worth watching. He's really made me appreciate the value of wedding photography. To be honest I haven't found the sections were he shoots the 'pretend wedding' particularly good. But there is so much more in terms of the raw emotion and sentiment to be taken away from this course. You really will see wedding photography as a true art form after watching this.
