7 Reviews for Family Posing Series
“First thing first, it's a terrific course. It has changed the way I think and act, posing a family or a group of people, and it made a lot of difference to the final output I get from the shoots. I have not even completed the second course from the list of courses, still I had learnt so much. The instructor, Michele, is very enthusiastic, easy to watch and with a tinge of humour. She definitely have a knack to teach people. I would definitely recommend this, and as usual, thanks always goes to Sue and the Portrait Masters team.”

“Michele's course for Portrait Masters Family Posing is quite possibly the most comprehensive posing course I have ever taken. She breaks down every aspect of family portraiture and puts a classic and contemporary spin on the indoor, outdoor studios and location shooting. It is a Master's work for the emerging masters in her genre.”

“This series is a practical and well laid-out approach to mastering the challenges of creating dynamic group portraits, presented with Michele's trademark upbeat and enthusiastic style. She gives clear explanations of the practices, followed by live sessions with real people...it's a great investment in a solid education for anyone who works with groups. And I do - thank you!”

“I'm only a fraction of the way through the videos and can't believe how much information and detail is included. Watching these videos is giving me a great boost of confidence that I can master my family sessions. Thank you Michelle and all those involved in this creation. It's incredible!”

“Purchasing Michelle's Family Posing Series is one of the BEST decisions I've made! Excuses VANISH when you watch Michele turn alley ways, block walls, and metal buildings in to AMAZING backdrops for individual and family portraits. (Even during times when the sun is harsh and high in the sky!). Use of the scrim to allow a client to sit without damaging clothing, and stacked to allow greater diffusion will be a game changer for me, moving forward.
I appreciate the way Michele interacts with her subject(s) using humor and a playful personality. Her 'technical' comments are AMAZING, providing insight for settings and technical choices. I also appreciate the right/wrong images to show how tweaking a pose slightly can make a HUGE difference in capturing our subjects in the most flattering way! I am feeling like a grateful sponge soaking up every bit of this course. Don't miss the chance to learn from one of the BEST! THANK YOU, MICHELE!”
