TESTIMONIALS

Nottingham-based Crash Taylor is one of the most sought-after wedding photographers in the country thanks to his unique shooting style and unrivalled enthusiasm. When the party’s over, the cake’s been eaten and there are only empty champagne bottles to show for the ‘biggest day of your life’, you can count on one thing to stand the test of time – the wedding album. For this reason, choosing a photographer is one of the most important aspects of organising a wedding, and despite all the competition out there Crash Taylor is at the top of his game. With weddings, portrait shoots, movie-making and teaching courses all filling his busy schedule, it’s fair to say that he’s completely obsessed with photography and everything about it.

- Andrew James, Editor, Practical Photography Magazine

Crash Taylor’s workshop is like having your stereo tuned to inspiration FM, whilst sitting next to the speaker with the volume on max.
You don’t just hear what he has to say – you feel it. It resonates inside you, switching on an immense desire to explore, create and improve your photography.
As well as infecting you with his good vibes and high end technical skills he also unselfishly parts with invaluable marketing and business knowledge.
You’ll come away with the confidence to grow your business and photography to a level you previously wouldn’t have thought possible.
If you only attend one workshop this year then make sure you go see Crash.

__________________________________________________________________________

Crash Taylor’s workshop was one of the best investments I have made for my business this year. I walked away with way more knowledge than I though possible in one sitting, a deeper understanding for the importance of marketing in my business and an excitement to begin my journey into the world of wedding photography. Its hard not to catch on to Crash’s complete dedication to his art. He is an inspiring person to listen to, and his enthusiasm and passion for what he does day in and day out (literally, he does photos walks every day! DEDICATION!) translates into everything he does.
I highly recommend this opportunity to learn and grow as an individual and as a photographer, there is nothing that is off limits with Crash and he definitely goes the extra mile in everything he does!! Thank you Crash, so so much for putting yourself out there and making yourself available so others can learn. Your input has been priceless. I cant wait till I can get involved in more workshops with you!

What can I say about Crash Taylor’s workshop… ‘The art & business of digital Wedding photography’
Firstly I have to say that as someone with years of background in sales, and over 30 years too as a photographer (though only shooting Weddings for about 2) I was really hoping to learn very little, such that I could then rely on my current plans, thoughts and hopes as a way to advance my business with just the added tip from Crash – how wrong was I !!! Crash laid bare his entire method of not only how to approach a Wedding, but everything from his gear, how to shoot it through to how to process it and even how to present it to the happy couple. I was simply not expecting such honesty & openness from a ‘stranger’ as it’s more akin to what you’d hope & expect from a good friend
Once the deepest secrets of Crashdom shooting was explained Crash turned to the detail (in minutiae) of how he landed in Nottingham only 4 years ago and immediately set about first entering then dominating his local marketplace; attaining a market position & income most Wedding photographers would love but can’t believe is possible for them, and because of that lack of belief – they are right. We explored leaflets, networking, Blogs, Facebook, paid advertising & Crash’s own box-of-tricks he hands to his potential clients; not from theory but from Crash’s own hands-on experience. Lastly we turned to how to sell one’s services to the couple, and yet again there were some interesting Crashy twists that are easy to see will work & work well for anyone applying them
Crash’s service level to his clients is based on ‘Exceeding Expectations’, and his workshop certainly exceeded mine by far more than I could have hoped. If you are thinking of attending anything Crash offers, and you should, then be prepared and take more notepaper than seems reasonable, you’ll need it as knowledge & inspiration flows fast and freely
I was already a Facebook Fan of Crash Taylor Photography, now I’m a Fan of Crash himself – thanks Crash

“If you’re looking for an injection of inspiration, style, creativity, and know-how, or like me, a kick-start with your photography – then Crash Taylor is your man! He’ll tell you straight everything he knows, and more importantly, everything he feels. His love for photography is infectious. Believe me, you come away from one of his seminars feeling invigorated and ready to take on the world. My head is still buzzin’ with excitement a week later!
One of Crash’s maxim’s: ‘Surround yourself with greatness!’ Get yourself to one of his seminars and you’ll know what he means! Learn from a master photographer who is at the top of his game. You will not be disappointed.”

“As being a big fan of Crash and admiring his work, I decided to attend his workshop in March 2010.
I can say honestly that all my expectations were fulfilled. I was especially impressed by Crash’s passion, creativity,
sense of humour and ability to share all his secrets. I left home empowered and with priceless knowledge ready to apply.
Miraculously right after the workshop I got an enquiry for a wedding. I would highly recommend to attend Crash’s seminars
to anyone who wants to be more than just an average wedding photographer and move his or her business to the higher level.”
