About This Class


Every face has its beauty.  But how to do get these faces to relax, open up, and get creative with us so we can take their portraits?  In this class I’ll be giving you some tips from my experiences on how to allow the person you photograph to feel relaxed in front of the lens, and trust you as a photographer.  When your subject feels comfortable being photographed by you, you will be able to capture something that goes beyond their faces.  You’ll be able to capture their style, their personalities, and at times even their stories.


My class is for anyone who has an interest in this topic!
