Is it better to work with someone on a wedding shoot or by yourself?
Pargesparrow 15 uur geleden
You both have that possitive vibe. I think of Dwight from the office everytime I see your cheeks ๐Ÿ˜‚

I'm going to be honest Matti... I found your guys' Vimeo years before you started NLblock and that was a huge inspiration when I started shooting weddings. I loved your work and was pivotal to growing my wedding work. It was crazy when I was watching your channel regularly and you mentioned your weddings!

Ok one very important ? I have is, even tho the 12 pro is better images and video my ? Is is it even noticable when viewing on the phone itself since the screen resolution is the same? I can see the difference alot more if viewing on a large monitor.

all of your tips were pretty much exactly what I have been doing with my wedding videos. I was thinking them before you said them because they're so true and right! I had to do so many free ones to build a portfolio and even did my first wedding not knowing what I was doing but like you said, I faked it till I made it haha just takes lots of hard work.

This was such a timely video. Iโ€™m exactly where you guys were at during the start. I have a wedding or two under my belt and a few other projects, but trying to get momentum both as a freelancer and as a NLblockr. Appreciate the advice! Also, Iโ€™d I also went to Bible college and then returned for my Mdiv. Would love to hear about that part of your life at some point!

I'm in my 4th year of building my video company. I do most of it solo bringing in other freelancers. First year was about $15k, second year was $30k, last year was $20k (thanks Covid) and this year I'm aiming to hit $40k. My best path to success has been building referrals with weddings (wedding shows are a waste of money unless you're massively good at hard selling), and commercially my biggest success has been building partnerships with marketing companies and website developers to have them sell to their clients for a commission and I fulfill the orders. Those are really what I've been working on since the pandemic started and it's starting to bear some fruit. Partnerships are key, especially if you're not big into the sales process yourself. I still undervalue my time quite a lot. I'm starting to turn down the penny pinching clients. Had a few last year that just sucked the life out of me and really broke me of accepting the penny pinchers.

Yeah, but what about prints? Specially large prints. I see a lot of comparisons like this around but none show the final product, prints. Which are the reason real cameras are meant for. Posting on IG is nowhere near a 13"x19" print, sorry. Let alone the device functionality. I enjoyed the video, bro. Cheers.

I don't have color issues with my premiere exports (at least I believe) but I do have problems with youtube. Once I upload it, some colors of the video look twice as saturated ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ So annoying. Have anyone ever had the same issue?

Currently building mine up right now, and just getting into the phase of charging what I deserve to be paid. The importance of personal connection like you mentioned is so important. I've been recommended for most of my work through simple Word of Mouth or clients sharing our project on social media. Even on social media, I switched up my focus from my business IG to my personal IG and the engagement has literally doubled since I made that switch

Bringing out the BOOTS! My cousins and I used to RIP it (or at least try) back in the day. A week or two ago one of my cousins bought the new release of the retro Razor Cults after not being on blades for like a decade. They are SICK! It's got me wondering if I might strap up and go see if I still got it (just need to up my health insurance coverage first - I'm in the US). Lovin' the vibes of the videos as bros. All about family my dude.

Ryan Lawless

Honestly, of all the things that I've seen the two of you do over the course of your respective NLblock journeys, your inline skating skills are the most inspiring yet. Your confidence and competence shine through in your skating. Did you find that the discipline and dedication to mastering inline skating transfer over to mastering photography and videography? I would love to hear if there was any cross-pollination from one to the other in your opinions. I think it would be fascinating to hear your skating origin stories. Great video today.
