Is it possible for one to limit one's style too much? Confused? Let me explain. I love weddings and photography. Always have, even as a kid I loved going to weddings-they are such a special event. I would beg to go whenever we knew someone getting married. And I have loved photograpy since age 12 (15 years). But in my experience as an assistant for a digital traditional/photojournalist style photographer I found several things I hate. I personally can't stand a ton of flash photography at a wedding. I don't like how some photographers use huge telephoto lenses during the ceremony, nor do I like having to carry them. Yes, I know, I was the assistant and I can hire one, but i was his first one and he had done it all himself previously. I can't imagine trying to keep up with that volume of gear and focus on the photos too! Using his DSLR's and flash on every shot it was so obvious that we were there, there was no way to hide it. And his formals which he did after the ceremony, were all lit with large strobes and power packs. That was a pain! Carrying them and having to tear them down as quickly as possible before we could leave for the reception. So my question is how much more difficult would it be for someone starting on his/her own to do something similar to Jeff Ascough or George Weir? Using Leica M's and predominatly black and white photos? I love the cameras! And due to a back injury from a car wreck I won't ever be able to carry a ton of gear by myself. My thinking is to promote myself based upon my photos, and the fact that I would act primarily as an observer during the day, not a coordinator. I want to feature real life photos, not posed. And how would you market yourself to a higher level clientale? I live in a relatively small town of 65,000 but am only a few hours away from all of my states major cities and would definetly be willing to travel. I guess that's all I have for now, sorry it's so long, but I REALLY appreciate your help. Any comments or criticism, will be appreciated, just be polite!
