How to go from taking average photos to creating awesome portrait and lifestyle images – for pleasure or profit.
This world class course will show you how to direct like a pro and reveals the secrets top photographers use to produce such stunning images.
If you want to create magic in your portrait photography, you need to connect with your subject. Whether you’re shooting women, men, groups or children, you need to know how to direct and pose them so they look natural – and amazing.
When it comes to shooting people, it takes more than great technical knowledge and smart lighting skills to really get the perfect shot.
It can be frustrating when you know that you’ve done everything right. You’ve found a great location, the lighting is sublime, your gear is working perfectly, you know the ideal F-stop and shutter speed to use – but your shots just turn out …. okay.
Well, all that is about to change.

Whether you’re a newbie or a professional, this course will improve your photography.
How can a course cater to newbies AND professionals? This course does because it’s not about the technical aspects of photography. It’s about directing and posing your portraits.
It doesn’t matter whether you are the most technically proficient photographer on the planet – or whether you picked up a camera for the first time last week. When you learn the right directing and posing skills, you can use these skills immediately, no matter what level you’re at. And you’ll see a marked difference in your shots.
You’ll learn professional posing and directing techniques – the same techniques Gina has used with Daniel Radcliffe, Justin Bieber, Claudia Schiffer, Rebel Wilson, Rachel Griffiths, The Dalai Lama and many others – that will apply regardless of whether you have an entry level or pro camera. (And if it’s good enough for Harry Potter, it’s definitely right for you.)
When I first started out in photography, I spent so much time trying to get the technical stuff right – you know, the lighting, the aperture, the softbox, the shutter speed – that it took me a while before I realised that I was missing a really key ingredient.
That all important connection with my subject.
I realised I couldn’t just plonk them in front of the camera, issue a few directions and hope that one of the frames was going to turn out.
When I took the time to really connect with my subjects, I ended up with shots that graced magazine covers or were used on massive billboards that I would stare at while driving down the freeway.
The secret is that you don’t have to spend a lot of time to connect with people. (Sometimes I’ve been allocated a mere five minutes to shoot them!) You just need to understand what you need to do in order to get the shot you want.
Over time, I developed a proven framework to get the best out of people. And I worked out a series of “go to” techniques to take amazing shots of men, women, children, groups and couples. I’ve used these techniques in all my photography – and it gets results every time!
I’ve worked out how to deal with insecure people, arrogant people and everyone in between – not only to produce shots that they love, but that look great as well.
But it doesn’t have to take you 25 years to learn these techniques. Why? Because I’ve packaged everything I know about directing and posing people into this course. Think of it as a comprehensive guide that will change your photography forever.
No matter how good you are technically, portrait photographers often face the same dilemmas.
