Workshop 304—The Art of Posing: $79

The Art of Posing for Models & Photographers

To be a successful model, you really only need to have ONE skill: posing. Yet few models really know how to do it, or even spend much time trying to learn. Most think that it is the job of the photographer to do it for you. Not so! Of course it is a team effort, but this is the model’s responsibility!

So we are here to help.

Here’s the rundown:

Observe how a great photo shoot should flow as Andy photographs an experienced model.
Part One:
Andy takes you through a guided tour of good and bad poses by critiquing actual photos of models he has taken. By seeing what is right and wrong, you can take this knowledge home to practice. And the photographers can pick up tips to pass along to models on future shoots.

Part Two:
The experienced model will demonstrate great poses for both commercial and editorial advertising. Learn what the agencies (that will hire you) are looking for! Models will be shown how to move from pose to pose while the photographers get some pointers to share with models on their next photo session.

Part Three:
Andy explains to photographers how to work with models to make them feel at ease and how to work through each phase of a shoot. The models learn how to think through the eyes of the photographer, (as well as the client) to achieve a successful shoot.

Part Four:
Photographers may bring their camera and hot shoe flash to work with the models as they pose. Models and photographers work together to practice what they’ve just learned. Both parties can use the photos for their portfolios.
