    31 This is Reportage. Conversation with documentary photographer Alan Law

    What makes documentary wedding photography so special? Why do some photographers dedicate their careers to the unpredictability and scriptless craft of documenting, not directing, wedding photography? In this episode, we sit down with Alan Law, a UK wedding photographer and founder of “This is Reportage.” Join us as we discover what sets documentary photography apart from other genres of wedding photography.



    What’s Covered in This Episode:


    Alan’s Journey. How he transitioned from traditional to documentary photography.


    Philosophy. Alan’s belief that wedding photography should tell a story, not just make people look good.


    Community Building. The creation and impact of “This is Reportage” and “This is Reportage: Family.”


    Authenticity. The power and freedom of capturing life as it happens.


    Challenges. The emotional rollercoaster of comparing work and striving for authenticity.

    About Alan

    Alan is a wedding photographer based in Cornwall, UK – the part of England that’s ‘supposed’ to see some sunshine. As well as shooting his own weddings, his passion for the documentary side of what we do led him to create This is Reportage, the worldwide community and awards-body celebrating the art of natural, un-posed coverage, and, later, the documentary family photography version, “This is Reportage: Family”. He also thoroughly enjoys teaching, and has run 27 of his own workshops throughout Europe – and couldn’t avoid the lure of the pun by titling his workshop ‘Law School’.
