True photojournalism? How many do it?
Feb 6, 2005

What's your defination of a wedding photojournalist?

How many can be truly classified as photojounalistic or reportage wedding photographers if so many of their imges are posed, directed, etc?

I know my self that is what I lean to and advertise and tell my clients that is my style, then when the actual wedding comes, that changes some how.

I tell them that I will take a few posed shots with the family and friends, then there are so many that show up for pictures you end up doing traditional wedding shots.

What percentage of pictures are allowed that are posed for directed allowed to still be considered a reportage style photographer?

In the true sense of the word, nothing should be posed, but you are in the background recording all the moments as they happen, not as you make them..

thoughts?
