You love taking photos. It might be a hobby or you might already be a pro. But when it comes to shooting people, it takes more than great technical knowledge and smart lighting skills to really get the perfect shot.
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.
It can be frustrating when you know that you’ve done all the things right. You’ve found a great location, the lighting is perfect, 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.
Why? Because this comprehensive course will change the way you shoot and direct – forever.
It’s designed to show you the secrets used by top photographers, smart hacks that show how to really get the best out of your subjects – whether you are photographing the girl next door, a supermodel, or a football team.
I’ve spent the past 25 years shooting everyone from high profile A-list celebrities, to CEOs to the guy who runs the corner store.
I’m absolutely passionate about portrait photography and my work has been featured on magazine covers, billboards and in editorial spreads and advertising campaigns from over the world.
You are going to learn so much from this course and will be able to put your new skills into practice immediately.
And you can get started straight away. With over 74 modules – filled with 3 hours and 30 minutes of instructional videos – this course is full of practical examples and ideas that you can swipe for your own photography.
You can use these tools to improve and enhance your photography right now. Your shots will never be the same again.
No matter how good you are technically, portrait photographers often face these dilemmas:
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.
Your photography is about to transform. You’ll be using your new skills on your very next shoot. Are you ready?
You’re about to learn how to take extraordinary portraits because I reveal the techniques and strategies you need to know in the online course “Calling the Shots” (with immediate 24/7 access). Here, you’ll quickly learn how to pose and direct your subjects and create more awesome photos than anything you’ve done up to now.
The best part is that you can take these techniques and use them to enhance your own shooting style and creative vision.
When you enrol, you’ll be given instant, 24/7 lifetime access to a private training community featuring 74 training videos to give you the skills you need to transform your photography.
You will also receive invaluable cheatsheets and resources to help you:
Specifically: You’ll get all the training and tools you need to up-level your photography immediately and ensure your images look like they have been shot by a true professional.
These instructional videos are the core of the course and they will change the way you shoot. You’ll have access to 74 training videos, arranged into specific sections, each focusing on a targeted area.
You will get immediate access to the videos, and you can choose to binge-watch in one go – or dip in and out of them as you need to. The best part is that you have access to these videos for as long as you want. So you can come back to them whenever you need a refresher.
And here’s the thing …
It’s not just me talking to you on camera. This course is not about theory. It’s incredibly practical. If I explain a concept, I always show you a real life example. That’s the best way to learn. Because you can then take that example and apply the same technique to your own shoots.
Whether you’re a newbie or a professional, this course will improve your photography.
Can’t see how a course can 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 I’ve used on the likes of 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.)
I’m an expert in photographing PEOPLE. Not fruit bowls. Not dinner plates. People. And now I want to share everything I’ve learnt about posing, directing and connecting with people to help transform YOUR photography.
This course is designed to help YOU become a better people person. I reveal my posing hacks and techniques, providing you with a step-by-step guide on how to connect with the people you’re shooting – regardless of whether they’re professional models or regular ‘people on the street’.
You’ll develop your very own blueprint:
This course helps you get the best out of your subjects every time you’re behind the lens – whether you shoot weddings, family pictures, corporate shots, portraits or lifestyle. It’s your comprehensive guide to taking the guesswork out of your shooting.
“Within a very short space of time, you were able to demystify the art of photography and give me a simple and clear understanding of how things work. More importantly you have reignited my passion for photography as an art form and as a vehicle to express myself. As if teaching me to be a better photographer wasn’t enough, you also introduced me to the mind blowing magic of Lightroom. WOW WOW WOW. Now I don’t just get to shoot pictures, I transform into artist mode and get to develop them just the way I want.”
“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.”
How much would an amazing training like this cost? Many people would say it’s invaluable. But seriously, I know people with photographer qualifications that have cost them thousands of dollars. When I teach these skills in live mentoring workshops, I usually charge $3500 a day.
However, I’m passionate about sharing these skills with as many people as possible. Why? Because I’ve been doing this for over 25 years and it has blessed me with an amazing life that has taken me all over the world. So now I want to help other photographers achieve the same success.
Today, you’ll receive this training – with all the added bonuses – for only $297 (though it’s soon expected to go up to $397).
Think about it. This could change your portrait photography forever. You can be THAT photographer who takes “WOW” photos of people. You can easily recoup your investment in just one job.
You just don’t come across a course like this often. So take action and sign up. I’ve mentored many photographers in recent years. And they all say that learning about connecting, posing and directing from me has transformed their photography – and their careers. This is going to change the way you see things and the way you shoot – and I’m certain it’s going to inspire you to become an even better photographer than you already are.
