Many Photographers focus on learning how to TAKE photos, but they freeze up when they have to pose and direct their model during the big photoshoot! Join professional photographer and instructor Todd White for an in-depth exploration on how to interact, direct and collaborate with your chosen subjects.

• Choosing your model
• First meetings
• Collaborations
• How to verbalize your expectations
• Posing verbiage
• Getting comfortable BEHIND and IN FRONT OF the camera


This class is suited for photographers of all skill levels wanting to improve their portrait photography by improving their interaction and communication with their subjects.

Maximum Enrollment: 15
Minimum Enrollment: 4

Schedule and Format

This class is three hours long and takes place in the Precision Camera classroom. This class combines theory and implementation elements for creative shoot concepts. The first 90 minutes of class are spent going over the basic elements of inspiration and creativity for photoshoots in a lecture setting. We will discuss the difference between a model and a muse, and discern which is needed for particular projects. We will also discuss how to properly lay out shoot expectations and communication for booking photography subjects. The final 90 minutes will be hands-on, practical photography exercises. We will discuss verbiage for posing and establish a working language with your photography subjects. We will go over a few exercises to get comfortable BEHIND the camera, as well as in front of it. There will be an open photography portion to close out the class.
