COUPLES POSING AND DIRECTING WORKSHOP

FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS

pinimage

 

With over 8 years in this business, I remember the early struggles with directing clients to get images that are flattering and natural. I have been there, and fast forward to now when this is my FAVOURITE part of a wedding day! Having creative control should not be scary! I want to teach you how I break down posing in a way that makes it easier to direct different types of clients, get them to trust you and relax in front of the camera, have an arsenal of go-to poses and lots of other tips and tricks for different couples and situations! Avoid those moments of “what do I do next?”, that awful brain fog that stops you in your tracks when you only have 10 min to get more portraits at a wedding! My goal is to give you more confidence in your couples shoots and weddings! Also, we will end with a live shoot portion, where you can watch and learn a bit and then get right in there if you like!!

This workshop is for photographers, hobbyists or professionals, who work with couples!!

I will be keeping this workshop intimate so that I can have as much interaction as possible, so seats are limited!!
