zen and the art of wedding photography

Wedding photographer Jay Doherty has a unique approach to work, one informed by a laid back, philosophical outlook on life.

Having spent many years living in sun kissed California, developing an eye for an image by photographing fellow skateboarders and surfers, Jay returned home to Donegal to start a family and reconnect with the rugged Irish coast.

He has since established himself as one of the country’s foremost wedding and portrait photographers, recently named Northern Ireland Wedding Photographer of the Year at the PPANI Awards.

A maverick among many, Jay prides himself on gaining new clients primarily through word-of-mount, and we’re happy to have him deliver the next original Engage Live class: Zen and the Art of Wedding Photography.

In this transformative two-hour class, Jay talks about the importance of developing a healthy mind and body to facilitate a happy, healthy business.

Jay’s work-life routine involves eating healthy, jogging in the mornings and spending time talking with clients, rather than endlessly posing them, to achieve a calm atmosphere on the biggest day of their lives.

In this new Engage Live online photography class, you will learn about:

  • The power of PMA (positive mental attitude)
  • How to overcome adversity
  • Maintain motivation
  • Empathise with others
  • Create a business and portfolio that represents the real you
  • And check out lots of Jay’s amazing work

If the thought of another wedding season on the horizon fills you with dread, this Engage Live class is a must watch.

In Zen and the Art of Wedding Photography, learn to do what you can, where you are, with what you have – live the dream and get paid for it.

This new class will be added to the Engage Live library at 11am on August 31. Pre-order the class content now and save £10.
