If you like to take photos of models it is not only the composition and the light that you should take care off.

If your subject does not look right, the shoot will not be “The one”.

Posing is a skill that every photographer looks at in a model but it is a skill that photographers need to learn too.

Knowing how to direct your model will open the opportunities to finding a model for you as anyone can be “The star”, not only professional models, IF YOU KNOW HOW TO GUIDE HER.

This workshop will help you to understand:

  • How the camera sees.
  • Directing techniques for face and body.
  • Adjusting the pose and angles.
  • Creating the Mood & Drama.
  • Movement.
  • Posing Curves.
  • Showcase the strength & cover the weaknesses.
  • And more…

During the Workshops the participants will have the opportunity to practice by directing the model/s themselves.


Equipment required: Any camera that you know how to use will work. The workshop is about directing models not about photo techniques. We can work with both, strobes and continuous lights.
