Jerry Ghionis Workshop


After my last wedding for the year, my totally understanding and beautiful wife let me go for a week to Melbourne without her, so that I can attend a wedding photoshop workshop with Jerry Ghionis.

Jerry Ghionis is identified as one of the top five wedding photographers in the world, his work is really nothing short of brilliant.  One can look at his work and say wow they are beautiful and the location is stunning -  but that is because he shoots model brides in million dollar mansions.  But the fact is that Jerry has the ability to make any girl (of any size) look and feel like a supermodel, and turn the most boring hotel room into a mansion – and all without the help of photoshop.

Yes I am starting a bank fund so that I can book him for my daughter’s wedding.

The workshop with Jerry was an incredible working experience.  I have attended several workshops in the past few years, and I think I learn’t more in 3 hours with Jerry that I learn’t from any previous workshop.  Over five days (that started at 10 am and finished at midnight) my head was exploding with knowledge.  If you can only attend one photography workshop in your life, attend his, it is worth every penny, even for the huge payback to the wife for leaving her alone with the kids for a week (yes I am going to be paying for this for years to come).

So now during my break from weddings, I am madly photographing anybody I can, to try and practice and keep all this knowledge alive and well.  And as Jerry notes, like anything you can only get good with practice practice practice.  So if you want a free photoshoot, please message me on my facebook page.

You can follow my progress on my facebook page, and I will dedicate a few posts to the beautiful people I photograph over the next few weeks.

Below is a few photos from the workshop
