You’ll learn about all the gear Cliff takes to a wedding and why it earns a place in his bag, you’ll see how Cliff interacts with the bride and groom as he builds a rapport that helps to put the client at ease and keeps the focus on their big day, and you’ll gain the benefit of Cliff’s insights into how he approaches a wedding shoot, what his priorities are, and how he prepares for all the unpredictability that a wedding presents. watch trailer | watch course
