No matter what the circumstance Gina’s approach helped me with posing and lighting every type of portrait. I’m truly grateful for everything I learned from her and use this knowledge every time I pick up my camera.
"Not only does Gina demonstrate the importance of technically producing sound images, her ability to relate to people was exceptional, allowing me to realise how crucial such methods are to running a photographic business. I am extremely grateful to Gina for her positive outlook and providing me with the confidence to take further steps in my career."
"I was moving from web design into becoming a headshot and portrait photographer. The most valuable part of learning from Gina was watching how she operates. It’s all about the interaction and soft skills. She has a talent for working with people she has never met before. The experience vastly improved my confidence to keep evolving professionally and to work harder than ever."
"Before I discovered Gina Milicia I was pretty much taking really crap photos and crossing my fingers! Which was terrible as I’m an artist, and often a good photo is the only way for someone to get close to my artwork. Since putting Gina’s tips to practice I’ve been more confident with my photography and sending my pics to press for editorials. I love her fun, practical approach to teaching too, it makes learning actually exciting!"
"I learnt the rules for taking better-than-good pics, but at the same time, to experiment and dare to be different. I learnt to look at a subject and frame it in a number of ways, visualising the finished product and imagining what it could be.
"The most valuable part of the experience was learning that if you want to be a better-than-average photographer you cannot be shy (or even just a little daring), you have to be confident in your own ability, and a touch of ‘crazy’ can sometimes be a big help. Gina is well qualified to teach all those things. It changed my approach completely. I now see excellent subjects I have never noticed before. I can now produce pics that tell their own story and enhance everything I write."
Gina knows how to make one feel comfortable and at ease in order to capture the essence of a great portrait. It is poetry in motion. The choreography is magic to watch, Gina's skills and technique (as well as her monologues - her comic timing is genius) will remain essential in my routine, always.
