TESTIMONIALS
— 01 —
"His personality draws the best from his subjects."

From our first meeting, I was keen to work with Tec. His personality draws the best from his subjects. He has the natural ability to put people at ease.

— NATHAN WILLIAMS, EDITOR IN CHIEF & EXECUTIVE CREATIVE DIRECTOR OF KINFOLK MAGAZINE

"I loved being let into his head on a wedding day."

Tec is a brilliant storyteller. I loved being let into his head on a wedding day, seeing how he moves around, scouts for the right location, and the mental shot list that he creates. His confidence is infectious and empowering.

— KATIE GIBBS, DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHER

"Whatever Tec shoots appears more grand, more humble, more whatever it is."

There’s something about Tec’s work that feels so grounded; his images have depth, contrast, impact, and a certain earthiness. Whatever Tec shoots appears more grand, more humble, more whatever it is. It’s as if he takes the essence of his subject and brings it out twofold. He finds a way to make the most mundane things special.

— SARAH WINWARD, FLORAL DESIGNER

"It was a really eye opening experience."

If I had the ability to photograph my own wedding just how I saw it, I would have done it just like Tec did. After working with him, I felt confident that what I was doing as a wedding photographer was even deeper than I thought it was. There is meaning behind it—not only making beautiful images, but capturing the day just as the bride would if she were able to. It was a really eye opening experience.

"Tec is so open, honest and encouraging in everything he shares in his course."

Tec is so open, honest and encouraging in everything he shares in his course. (He even talks all about his lab and his colors which is so interesting!) I finished the course feeling really inspired to get back in the saddle again and challenge myself as a photographer.

— HANKE ARKENBOUT, FILM PHOTOGRAPHER

FAQ
I've already purchased "Wedding Photography with Erich McVey." What's the difference?

Tec’s journey has uniquely shaped how he approaches his craft. His experiences, opportunities, and perspectives are true to who he is, and he’s a pretty one-of-a-kind guy. While there will be some similar ground covered in his wedding course, Tec takes a deep-dive into how he got started, what happened along the way, and how he thinks about his business and work as an artist, which is very different from Erich’s experience. Tec also has a wealth of insight into commercial photography, which is especially new content that he shares in great detail in The Commercial Course.

FAQ
'I'm just getting started' or 'I'm an experienced photographer'. How do I know if this course is right for me?

The experiences and lessons which have shaped Tec’s career can apply to anyone, whether you shoot film or digital, you’re someone just starting out or an established shooter looking to challenge yourself creatively, or a photographer wanting to move beyond the world of weddings and break into the commercial market. This course was written with a range of experience levels in mind. For a detailed breakdown of the topics covered in The Wedding Course and The Commercial Course, visit the What You’ll Learn page.

FAQ
I've been to one of Tec Petaja's workshops before. Would I learn anything new from this course?

Definitely! Tec’s courses, The Wedding Course and The Commercial Course, share his years of experience in both the wedding and commercial photography industries. The combination of PDF chapters and behind-the-scenes videos give you an up-close and personal look at how he approaches all aspects of his craft. The added bonus is that you can work through the content at your own pace and pause and rewind as necessary. You will also have the opportunity to gain insight into the world of commercial photography; something typically not covered in Tec’s in-person workshops.

FAQ
I'm a digital photographer, but interested in learning how to transition into shooting film. Would this course be suitable for me?

For those new to film, we’ve included a Quick Guide to Film in The Wedding Course to catch you up on any of the lingo that might seem foreign. Then there’s the videos and written content where Tec shares all about his camera equipment and the film he works with, and finally you’ll love the detailed interview with Richard Photo Lab where you’ll hear answers to everything you’ve ever wondered about working with a lab.

FAQ
I don't work professionally as a photographer but I really enjoy taking photos and would love to learn more about photography. Would this course be suitable for me?

Absolutely! This course is filled with practical knowledge that will help you improve your photography skills, regardless of your level of experience. Tec also shares his photography journey in great detail from when he was first starting out, so you’ll also be able to learn a lot from his experiences. There’s also plenty of practical tips about camera equipment, learning to work with film, composition, techniques for creating great images and more.
