    I am interested in gaining experience. Feel free to check out my portfolio ... I have a lot of experience, but not in weddings. It's not necessarily the area I'd like to head towards ... but I would really like to shadow someone simply to get experience with quick-fire posing, groups and a high-pressure/one chance environment.

    Forums are not the best way to get into this field... face to face up close and personal is the way I did it... worked for me both times. ;)

    Google searching are probably the best way to find someone whose work inspires you in your area, and then open the lines of communication

    Hey Sue, I was just thinking... how good are your networking skills? In other words, how many of your local "competition" do you know face to face? Do they know you? Are you on good terms with them?

    If not, this is an EXCELLENT reason to start doing it, that way they get to know you and could call you if they knew you were available to 2nd shoot!

    I'm doing some networking this week as well. This weekend is the bi-annual wedding show in Montreal. I already have the names, numbers, websites of EVERY photographer and videographer there... guess what I will be doing? ;)
