Have you ever been in a situation where you are photographing a client and after your third or fourth pose you totally blank out? That's when panic hits and you go back to your first pose.

Well, I've seen this happening way too many times. That's why I created this class. To help you to NOT stress about posing anymore.

If you're waiting for a class where I'm going to teach you pose #1, pose #2, and so on, this is not the class for you. Instead, I'll show you the fundamentals of posing, what makes a good pose, and even more importantly, how to direct your clients to quickly achieve the desired pose. I truly believe a lot of issues with posing comes from not knowing how to properly give directions.

Well, your posing frustrations end right after this class!

Key take-aways:
Why memorizing poses never work
2) What makes a good female pose
3) What makes a good male pose
4) What to look for when posing groups/families
5) How to handle height differences between couples
6) How to effectively direct to quickly and painlessly achieve the desired pose
