The two biggest challenges facing portrait photographers are how to guide the subject into a pleasing and effective poses, and communicating and directing them to achieve real expressions. This class breaks these areas down into essential and usable techniques. The use of hands, head tilts, props, and hats as well as hiding physical defects is demonstrated. We will demonstrate many classic and effective poses for men and women, individual and couples, kids and families.


The photographer/subject relationship is delicate, so the art of listening and asking questions is a major factor in gaining the trust of your client. Through the use of scripting and practice sessions between the participants, we will discover the best ways to relax and relate to your clients. We discuss how to overcome both the photographers’ concerns and the client’s fears or nervousness, the discovery process, building the teamwork and speaking respectfully to the client in order to guide the photographic session.
