Posing with Roberto Valenzuela

Roberto Valenzuela takes you through the building blocks that can create any pose, instead of limiting yourself to memorizing poses or following rigid posing rules. This one on one session will take you on a personal journey so you can achieve great understanding of posing as a crucial part of being a successful long-term photographer.

Everybody wants to look their best and they rely on their photographer to use his/her expertise to make sure they do. Remove the anxiety many people feel when they have to pose their clients. For many photographers, after learning to compose an image and even light it properly, a portrait can still fail if the pose is not natural, elegant, natural, and serving the needs of both the subject and the photographer.


You do not have to be at any level in particular to get the most out of this class. Roberto will teach his posing system from the ground up the same way to the class so everyone is on the same page and understands the building blocks of posing perfectly. In terms of equipment, you should be familiar with the basics of your SLR or mirrorless camera. The perfect preparation for the workshop would be to read Roberto's book Picture Perfect Posing beforehand.
