July 13th Via Zoom Joe Edelman

The Psychology and Techniques behind Photographing Beauty

80% of photographing people is psychology. 20% is the art and science of photography.


Cameras, lenses, lights and modifiers – these are things that photographers love but these are NOT what makes a great portrait or beauty shot. Photographing people for any reason is a relationship game and the gear must take a back seat to the interaction between you and your subject. Photographers routinely go out of their way to learn how to sell to their clients, but they don’t put the same effort into learning how to interact with their clients to get the desired results in front of the camera.


Together, we will take a deep dive through my entire process and I will share with you how I plan and execute a shoot. I’ll cover everything from shoot prep with my subjects and makeup artists and I will review lighting, shooting, communication and posing techniques and much more.

June 8th via ZOOM - Angela Hughes, Modern Senior

High School and Destination Seniors

In my program I will share inspiration from my beginning to where I am now as a photographer.

Through this journey we will explore the success and failures along the way which will lead us into what is now a thriving business built by single mom of two.

We will explore the overall experience...

- the squad and how it began

- building relationships with my seniors in the parents

- destinations senior sessions

My bio - my life began the purpose and meaning the moment I learned that I was going to be a mother.

It is through those eyes are discovered my passion for photography.

It has been a journey with a lot of bumps and bruises along the way, but everyone of those bumps led me to where I am today.
