A Conversation with David Ziser: Master Wedding and Portrait Photographer (Part I)

David Ziser is a famous wedding photographer who regularly lectures on the craft. Hailing from Cincinnati, Ohio, David has photographed weddings for years, and was one of the first photographers to make a full transition from film to the digital world. Besides lecturing, David also offers lots of tutorials on his blog, Digital Pro Talk.

Starting a Wedding Photography Business

The second most-asked question I receive from photographers is, "How did you start your journey as a wedding photographer?" I photographed three weddings in October of 2006, then shot 38 weddings in 2007...all without formal training or money. When I began, I dared myself to dream and fail. My husband, JD, and I planned that I'd give this whole photography thing a try for one year, and if it didn't work, I'd go back and reclaim my scholarship to law school.
