Second Shooter for wedding Photography

At any major one off event you would want to ensure you manage to capture everything that is going on.

This can be a tall order for a lone photographer. So to have another photographer present as your “wing man” can be a real benefit.

Not only will it help with sharing out the stress and worry, but the good old “two heads are better than one” will also come into play. It is always best to have a “Lead” photographer and a second. Not that the Second’s job is any less important, but it’s good for the clients to know who to concentrate on at any given moment.

The Second’s main task is to help arrange the larger group shots especially at weddings and such, (it’s not always possible to have the guests sort themselves out), and to communicate with the organisers in general. Also another pair of eyes helps as the main photographer may get plinked to just what is in front of them. The second photographer may be able to spot better opportunities for a great photo elsewhere.

The other main role for a Second shooter is that whilst the Lead is taking the formal photos at say a wedding, the wing man is free to go round and take impromptu “emotion” shots of the other guests. These shots will help capture the magic of the occasion and can prove to be a great asset to any album.
