The posing Minor

LEMME GUESS...

Every time you leave a session you feel SO defeated because you could tell your clients felt awkward.

You're stuck in a rut using the same dang prompts over and over and over again...

Getting the dudes to loosen up and relax feels like trying to fit a round peg into a square, let's be honest.

The struggle bus for you is creating real relationships with your clients before their session. You're lost on how, and it's showing big time in your photos.

Even when you give your client's prompts, they always default to the "Cheese!" pose. *Cue facepalm.

You struggle when you know your client's aren't vibin' with ya. Your goofball attitude doesn't cut it every time.

Natural + vibrant posing is the holy grail of your life; yet... it's just not happening with your clients.

You want your clients to understand you DON"T want their photos to look like fake barbie doll mannequins.. but that's getting lost in translation somehow.

POSING THE WEDDING PARTY

05

In this first 16+ minute episode of the course, we teach you everything we know on how to email, communicate, and set expectations with your client's BEFORE a shoot. While yes, this course is on posing, but we believe about 80% of getting those candid, authentic images you dream of, happens in the work you do before you ever pick up your camera and the session begins. Episode 01 teaches you exactly how to communicate and set expectations with your clients beforehand.

Episode 02 kicks off the "in the field" series that the rest of the course follows. In this 40+ minute episode you get to watch as we pose our couple, Mark & Jamie, for an entire session. During the shoot, we pause to teach and explain directly to camera how we're posing them and why. At the beginning you even get to watch how we help them pick out their outfits for the shoot. Learn the exact strategies we use to consistently get fun, real, raw photos that are the opposite of staged.

Episode 03 is a 40+ minute long episode following Lindsey in the field shooting a family session. We'll give you action prompts to use when on families so they don't look like a J.C. Penny catalog, but instead show the raw, beautiful moments within a family session. We give you our best tips on how to specifically handle meltdowns, and what to do when the children don't exactly listen to direction. If you specialize in families this one's for you.

In Episode 04 you'll get to follow Evie in the field on a real life portrait shoot. This episode teaches you the top strategies we use when photographing individuals to bring their personalities to life in front of the camera. In this 40+ minute episode we break down how to pose seniors (or any individual portrait) in a way that still brings life, movement, and fun to the image. From different prompts you can give them, to knowing how to encourage them, this episode leaves nothing out.

Episode 05 is a meaty 47 minute long video following us posing an entire wedding party. If you ever get to the day of a wedding day and freeze when it comes to knowing how to get formal AND fun photos of the entire wedding party, we gotchu. We show you exactly how we pose the entire group, just the bridesmaids, and just the groomsmen. Then at the end of the episode we start a timer without cutting, while Evie shows you how she'd photograph the entire party if she only had 10 minutes on a stressful wedding day. 

POSING WEDDING COUPLES

06

The final episode in The Posing Minor covers how to pose a couple on their wedding day. Follow us for 40+ minutes photographing a bride & groom. We teach you how to pose a couple in a candid, movement based way even while wearing a suit or wedding dress that is more restrictive. At the end of the episode we start the timer again without cutting, while Lindsey shows you how she'd photograph the bride & groom portraits if she only had 10 minutes on a wedding day.

I'M NEW, IS THAT OKAY?

This course is already a mini course (it's actually the entire Season 5 from The Photo Major), therefore we do not sell individual episodes within this course. The tools taught in each episode can benefit every photographer no matter what specific niche of photography you're in.

The Posing Minor is different from the majority of posing guides or courses out there for a couple of reasons. This course doesn't just focus on posing one type of photography client, but many. We go in depth on how to pose couples, families, seniors/individuals, wedding couples in their formal attire, AND wedding parties. Rarely EVER are all of those different scenarios taught together in one posing course.

The other thing that makes us different is that for each of those different clientele, we LITERALLY bring you along documentary style while we shoot full sessions in each video. Every video in this course except for Episode 01 - Intro to Posing is 40+ minutes long. We don't just tell you what to do with your clients to get authentic, candid posing. We quite literally SHOW you because we believe that most people learn best by watching.

What sets this course apart from others?
