    1. Why did you choose Wedding Photography? I was always the one at family gatherings with a camera so when people in my large family started getting married, they asked me to be the photographer.

    2. Did you start out as an apprentice or started slowly by doing your "cousin's" wedding? Exactly that - first wedding I shot was my cousin's wedding. 2nd was my brother's. :p

    3. Do you get nervous since this is a one time event? When I first started doing it, I was nervous to the point of being sick. Once I had a system down, I much more relaxed. My biggest fear... equipment failure or forgetting to bring film. :LOL:

    4. What type of camera do you use? - Medium Format, SLR, DSLR? And which would be your primary and/or seconday camera? When I started, I used my Minolta 3xi. Now that camera is my back up and I shoot weddings with my Bronica ETRsi.

    6. Film / Flash Card / Both? Film for weddings - always. I haven't been brave enough to try one with my 10D yet.

    7. How did you build up the confidence? Shoot lots of them. Portraits too. Look at other photographer work for posing ideas and then develop your own style.

    8. Source of inspiration? I look at other photographers work but really my biggest source of inspiration is myself since I am interally competitive - always trying to be better than before.

    9. Has your style changed since you started out? Definately! My first weddings used all of the canned wedding poses. Now, I have my own style and poses. Very relaxed but still formal. I spend a ton of time with brides and grooms before the big day so that their wedding photos really reflect who they are.

    Excellent!! :thumbsup:

    Just one more query; what is holding you back from attempting a 10D wedding?

    In a lot of ways, I'm still getting aquainted with digital. I've shot film all of my life and as nice as my 10D is, I really just love the richness that I get with professional quality film. Plus, I'm so familiar with my Bronica, it really is my favorite wedding date. ;) I might use my 10D next wedding for a few test shots.
