About This Class

Often sincere and emotion evoking photographs come from the in-between moments of the shoot. Although the person in front of the lens holds the ability to deliver an amazing image, in my opinion the photographer is equally responsible for capturing these authentic images. It truly is a team effort.

In this course I will teach how I accomplish these types of documentary-style photographs that show the true story, make clients feel comfortable and get those more personality driven and emotion evoking images. We will go over the steps I take before I even meet the client, how I working during the shoot and the one thing that binds it all together: trust.

Coming from no experience myself, she gives a great overview on basics with your model. This is really a 101 in the subject with good examples on application. Thank you!
