David Ziser, whose wedding photography is considered by many to be the finest in the world, has lectured on the subject of weddings to over 16,000 photographers in nine countries around the world.

The seminar will be devoted to challenging one's creativity, and enhancing his/her wedding photography as an art form.

Main topics to be discussed in the seminar will include a discussion of Ziser's style of photography and how he is constantly enhancing images that continue to be exciting and self-motivating.

The program will also include a discussion of compositional dynamics of the image with special emphasis on Line, Shape, Form, and Color as key ingredients for producing superior photographic images.

Although the seminar will revolve around Brides and Grooms, everyone who has ever taken a class with David knows that his ideas and concepts are founded in quality, contemporary portrait techniques. Therefore, the photographer specializing in portraiture should not miss this opportunity either, and is encouraged to participate and stretch his horizons in the seminar as well.

The seminar will not be strictly photography. Ziser will also briefly discuss his sales strategies. David's wedding average in 1979 was $375. In 1987 it was $3200. He currently has raised it to over $10,700 per wedding, nearly four times the average of his local market area.

David will discuss the "secrets" of producing award winning photographs on every job. In 1988, one of his entries scored a perfect 100. David also received his Fellowship Degree in the American Society of Photographers in 1988. Only 55 photographers in the world can claim that distinction. In 1990, his image entitled "Moonlight Serenade" was accepted into the American Photography Hall of Fame.

David believes that we photographers are too often wrapped up in photographic equipment and cook-book technique, unfortunately missing the intangible qualities of what our photography needs to capture most for our client - romance, sensitivity, and beauty - the essence of his photography.

David Ziser's program will spark your creativity and enthusiasm
the way no wedding program has ever done before.
