89FutureDoc says:

This brought me so much inspiration! I actually sat back and thought about
why I became a photographer! Thank you for showing this presentation I will
never forget why I do what I do!!!

Baris Cihan says:

This is one of the best photography videos on youtube which I´ve seen.
Almost 2 hours but no second is useless. Thanks for sharing you´re way of
work, Joe. It inspires me enormously.

Marcus Woida says:

Listen to it. It’s way more than talking about wedding photography.

In this video wedding photography is just a means to an end.
Joe Buissink tells a lot about what photography actually is.

Tony Fernandez says:

wide. Thanks for this video, playing this with 2 to go from my first

picture tells a story. Love it! Thanks B&H

E Miff says:

I have watched countless photography presentations and I have enjoyed all
of them. This presentation is by far the best of them all, you captivated
me throughout and I hung on every word. Thank you for practically two hours
of total enjoyment. I sincerely hope you do more presentations because I
learnt a great deal from this one.

DeMond Younger says:

The best ever!!!!!

This video made my cry a few times. It strangely… or not so strangely…
made me feel all the the love I have for my pets. I am shooting a wedding
on Saturday and it is my 3rd digital but 7th overall and this video gave me
soooo much inspiration! It made me really proud to be an amateur in this
art form and proud of the work I have already done. I definitely thought
about what I bring above other photographers. I think the reason a lot of
people don’t think about that is that they are afraid they won’t come up
with anything. I was…. but I did and I want to thank you for that!

I think the greatest lesson to learn from this is that it doesn’t matter
WHAT you sell exactly, is HOW you sell it.
There are FAR better photographers out there, with a lot more technical
skill than Joe. I am looking at the photos from the sunset beach ceremony –
the angles are not the best, there is some obvious HDR look due to the fact
he shot with no additional light or reflector against the sun, the
composition is often not at it’s best, sometimes due to improper focal
length, the place and the weather looks absolutely stunning and had an
incredible potential – but these are the things only another trained eye
could see, another photographer or someone “in the business” – not wanting
to sound “braggy” but most of the clients have no idea about straight
horizons, rules of third, perspective distorsion etc.
Surely some other photographer could have pulled a WAY BETTER job there,
but in the hearts of the clients, these are the best photos in the world,
absolutely perfect. And that’s pretty much the most important thing.
Joe may not be the best technical and skilled photographer, far from it,
but he is one of the most sought after and ( I reckon ) expensive
photographers in the world, because I have rarely seen someone talk with so
much passion and soul about his work – regardless of profession ( not just
photography ). He simply takes you and dives you in an ocean of emotion and
feelings just by listening to him – it’s simply impossible for him NOT to
be successful. It’s very obvious he loves his work and not only he believes
what he is talking about, he also FEELS IT and makes the client feel it too.
It was an absolute honor to see this workshop online and I’ve learned more
about life and soul, about expressing to clients, about making them feel
unique, than I did about pure photography as a profession.
If I had the money, I would probably pick someone else as my wedding
photographer for the reasons stated above, but hell, it was very inspiring
to hear him talk. This workshop will not make you a better photographer (
like many others might ) – but it will show you what it takes to actually
be a GREAT MAN – a great performer and why not, a great salesman.
Congratulations mr. Joe Buisink, it’s been … emotional !

Just wanted to say thank you for a wonderful presentation. Did not learn
