Outside the Cake Box Weddings is a series of articles blog entries at Airship37 wedding venue Toronto focusing on unique weddings. The title suggests that there is a trend right now for couples to seek an experience with their wedding that is a little more unique and customized. What is your experience with this?
It’s no secret that the wedding industry is very seasonal for the area we live in. Even though I have shot weddings in the winter, they are few and far between. My winters primarily consist of teaching at Sir Sandford Fleming College in Peterborough, Ontario. To produce the quality of images in my photography that I expect, I have become very proficient in Photoshop and this is the subject that I started teaching at Fleming. I have also taught the school’s Digital Imaging course to both college and high school students which combines the art to photography with the digital editing element of Photoshop. Since I also have an undergraduate degree in Computer Science and Mathematics a door also opened for me in the Math Department. Being able to teach Math in the off season as well as photography related subjects has been a nice fit with working full time in the profession.
