If you want to learn and discover the fastest way to create family portraits that clients love to buy and pose for, than this product is for you….
I’ve been shooting families since I was 22 years old. Back then, I started photographing in a busy, high volume franchise type photography studio. And at the height of the Christmas season no less, with an endless flow of bookings. What a way to learn, and learn fast. Here’s two facts I learned from over 30 years of photographing families:
1-They are lucrative and the backbone of a successful portrait studio. Every serious portrait photographer needs to create sellable family portraits.
2- They are tough. As in, not easy. Families are so varied and unique, in many ways (especially when you’re starting out) they are as hard as shooting weddings.
Boy, did I get thrown in the deep end!
And was I nervous. Since I was so young and inexperienced, I had to learn, and learn fast. I suppose there is no better way to get good at something but to jump in whole hog, head first, learn to swim, baptism of fire sort of experience…… is there?
I believe there is.
You see, no one back then was there to show me the ropes. Sure, I knew enough about exposure and lighting to get by on, but on posing families, I was on my own. A complete newbie. I could have saved a lot of grief and struggle has I had a mentor.
One important thing I did learn in all these years of photographing weddings, babies, children and families, is that families is my favorite of all sessions. There is something very special about the family unit. Another thing I also discovered along the way is that there is no easy, blueprint, simple, 123 solution to mastering, teaching and sharing the qualities needed to create great looking family portraits.
But I tried to do that anyhow. Even though families is a huge universe and much tougher than appears on the outside (hey, I’m being honest here-even though I could potentially be shooting myself in the foot), I pulled it together and brought every single element, strategy and technique that I personally felt was and is essential to teaching someone else who wants to master family portraits. Especially posing.
And what I created is what I believe to be the most comprehensive guide to working with and posing families available on the market today. The Profitable Studio Family Success system…….
