On May 4, 2018, I am offering my first ever workshop.
The title of this workshop is Strike a Pose: learn how to pose for a portrait.
The purpose of this workshop is to teach women, especially professional women or entrepreneurs, how to get portraits (whether personal or branding portraits) that portray them in the best light.
I see clients struggle with this issue all the time, men and women alike. They are confident and natural when talking with me, then suddenly, when the camera comes out, they stiffen up and forget what to do with their arms. The problem I see many women struggle with is the confusion around how to pose for their portrait – they feel like they are supposed to look simultaneously cute, sexy, flirty, skinny, shy, confident, ambivalent, intelligent, cool, confident, strong – and that confusion can zap the confidence and muddy the results. I would love to show you what to do when a camera is pointed at you, and remove the fear and confusion from the equation.
In this seminar, I plan on addressing the following topics:
- What to do in front of a camera – modeling 101, but for non-models
- How to take charge of your public image
- How to pose for the occasion – get images that help you move toward a goal
- Gender bias in photo posing guides and how it impacts you
- Insights into how pro photographers pose people, and why
- How your fear of looking bad in photos … is making you look bad in photos
I would love to see you there.
