There are wedding photographers – and then there is Bradley Hanson.
In this episode, we chat to Bradley who reveals the approach behind his image and the art of photography. He shares his thoughts on starting out and how he felt shooting his very first wedding, essential gear, setting expectations with clients, pleasing the client and pleasing yourself, muscle memory and shooting intuitively, and developing a unique style. This show is all about inspiring and learning from the best in the world – and with 19 years experience and 600 weddings Bradley has lots of great stuff to say in this interview.

I first discovered Bradley Hanson when I stumbled across the excellent podcast he co-hosts with UK photographer Ian Weldon.
I love the way Bradley see’s his images and talks about the art of photography. I find myself reading his blogs and wishing I had thought of that!

About Bradley Hanson
My connection to photography began at age 10 when my parents brought back a beautiful Voigtlander camera from Germany. Since 1999, I have been a professional photographer serving in Minneapolis, MN, Seattle, WA and international destinations. While weddings are my first love, I also apply my style to portraits, promotional images, live music, commercial and editorial work for a number of clients and publications. I regularly travel for weddings, and have been commissioned to photograph weddings all over the world. Over the past 19 years, I have photographed over 600 weddings, from as few as 6 guests in Seattle to over 600 people in Seoul, Korea.
Every other Wednesday I do a podcast called Outerfocus with UK photographer Ian Weldon about the history of photography. Each week we discuss a photographer in history while interviewing a current photographer about his/her work
“I learned early on that showcasing a portfolio of images that speak to me will attract the kind of clients who share the same visual aesthetic.”
