Purchased together, Wedding Photography and Commercial Photography, with Tec Petaja is a 500+ page online course covering everything Tec has to share about his years as a commercial and wedding photographer. This experience is less like a magic formula for success and a lot more like a front porch conversation with Tec, covering all of the stepping stones that led him to where he is now and what he’s learned along the way.
In the weddings course, we’ll look at how Tec found his unique look, developed a consistent brand, and grew his business to attract his ideal client. We’ll explore how he approaches engagement shoots and weddings, and how he keeps his post-production workflow simple. Through a conversation with Richard Photo Lab, we’ll take a deeper dive into the intricacies of film photography. Three instructional videos peppered throughout the course will give you an over-the-shoulder view of the way Tec directs his couples to capture a real story, how he shoots a wedding step-by-step, and what’s in his camera bag.
In the commercial course, Tec uncovers how the creative process of shooting for a commercial brand differs from capturing a wedding. He talks about building a portfolio, making industry connections, and collaborating with brands like Kinfolk, Airbnb, Afar Magazine, Joules, and more. Two instructional videos give you a behind-the-scenes look at what it’s like to be on a commercial set, and through a conversation with a commercial agent, we’ll lay out the hard truths about getting started in commercial photography, and offer some steps you can take now, no matter where you are in your photography career.
