Posing for Photography


As photographers we are constantly approached by clients of different looks, shapes and sizes. Your role is to understand the needs of your client and produce position best suited to them and their situation.

Whether posing individuals, couples or larger groups, understanding correct posing construction techniques can really finish off that look you have been looking for.

We take a broad look at the industry and take a walk through constructing individual, couples and group photography. This workshop also teaches you to set up scenarios to produce more of a candid and emotive styled look which can be applied to weddings, studio or creative styles.

This workshop is for any MODEL or PHOTOGRAPHER looking at expanding their shot portfolio. We look at correct lighting, appropriate angles and photographic techniques for an range of different positions with the assistance of a professional model

In this workshop you will be assisted by two or more active working industry professionals while learning in a full studio environment. There will be a model provided to work with and you will take photos on site
