Have a good camera, but can’t take good photos of people, consistently?
Struggle with bad light and harsh shadows?
Feel helpless when people don’t know how to pose - and you don’t know how to direct them?
Spend too much time retouching your photos, because you can't get them right straight from the camera?
Only Natural Light
You can take gorgeous, artistic portraits without having to pay for a studio, and without any lighting equipment.
In fact, without any additional equipment at all.
Just you, your camera, and your model.
And in any weather - sunny, cloudy or rainy.
You just need to know where to find great natural light around you, and how to use it.
The best natural light is often in the most unexpected, ordinary places. Places you wouldn't even think of. You would pass them on the street, without even looking.
Perfect Without Editing
Most people photography courses will teach you how to take a decent shot - then how to manipulate it to perfection in Photoshop, often beyond recognition.
I don't do that.
I teach how to make your portraits perfect straight from the camera, so there is no need for any editing.
How to create a finished image in the viewfinder, before pressing the shutter.
How to show people's real beauty, without digital manipulation.
There are 3 essential components of great people photography. These are the three things that you always have to get right to create beautiful images of people.
And these are the 3 steps of my system. A system that you can use yourself to get results like mine within days.
Results With Anyone
You don’t need professional models to create images like these.
You can get those results with complete amateurs.
You just need to know how to direct and pose them.
How to engage and interact with your model to get the best out of them.
How to make them relaxed, comfortable and confident in front of your camera.
How to capture emotions, natural expressions, and personality of your subject.

Which one do you think is the most important?
You probably guessed it right. It is your skill.
It's funny how many people invest their money in the exact opposite order.
