Newborn Posing Classes
Congratulations on taking the first step towards improving your newborn photography! With a 1:1 posing class in my studio, you'll receive the personal instruction you need to learn fast. It took me a long time to develop my workflow and consistency with my posing as I'm completely self-taught. I wasted a lot of time and money trying to figure stuff out on my own. Don't do what I did. Schedule a posing class! I'm extremely particular about my work and I'll teach you to be the same. If you want to learn to get your posing and flow perfect, then my posing class should be just what you're looking for! Fill out your registration form here.
Perfect Pose 1:1 Posing Class in Calgary AB
NOW AVAILABLE TO PHOTOGRAPHERS LIVING AND WORKING IN CALGARY!
Perfect Pose posing class has been designed to focus on helping you achieve flawless beanbag posing and an efficient transition flow. I also include styling, wrapping, prop posing, calming and soothing baby, studio lighting and angles, shooting angles, handling and getting variety with difficult babies, Mom & Baby posing and more! You'll have the opportunity to watch me pose and shoot 2 full sessions with 2 different babies, and you can shoot each pose for your own portfolio. Classes take place in my SE Calgary (Alberta) studio. I shoot with a strobe but since the class is posing based, natural light photographers are welcome. Classes are available any day of the week. The start time is 9:00am and we will be working with the models until approximately 6:00pm, with an hour break for lunch and Q&A. Then we will spend the final hour on editing and using my Photoshop actions. I recommend you have some knowledge of working in Photoshop prior to the class. Snacks, drinks, and lunch will be provided (we order Skip!). You'll also take home a swag bag full of beautiful props! I include my Photoshop action set, my posing videos (Perfect Flow and Perfect Wrap), a posing guide, and you'll have access to a private online group.
A Perfect Pose posing class is best for a professional photographer who already has some experience photographing newborns. You should have a professional level DSLR (full frame is recommended) and a good understanding of shooting in manual mode as I won't be teaching camera use. But I will explain the settings I use so you're able to get the best result in my studio. We'll go over my choice of lighting and my preferred lighting angles. I recommend bringing either a 50mm or 35mm prime lens (or both), extra memory cards, batteries, charger and a notebook/pen. The retainer is 50% of your class. The balance is due one month prior to the class date. Save $100 by paying in full at the time of booking (more than a month in advance of your class). Register here. You may pay your retainer through Paypal, or an e-transfer to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This half day class is taken after a 1:1 class, either the following day, or at a later date. It will help to solidify what you've learned. You will shadow me through a full session with a model baby, and then we'll have a Q&A afterwards. I highly recommend taking the refresher to ensure you retain the information taught. A 50% retainer is taken at time of booking. Refresher classes are only available if taking the posing class.
