Planning and Executing a Successful Shoot with a Couple (Cody Harris)
Limited Capacity seats available

This demonstration program will be a combination of posing/directing a young couple mixed with prompts and tactics I use to not only connect with my couples, but have them honestly connect with each other. I will run through my typical pre-shoot process for attendees and explain how I improved the couple's experience even before the shoot. For example, I am hands on with planning locations, time, expectations and getting my couples excited before the shoot day. I will go through how and why we choose certain outfits and colors while staying true to the couple's personal style. I will also explain how I build rapport with every couple before our shoot. During the shoot, I take the class through my process and explain not only what I do, but WHY I am doing it. I believe there are specific tactics that work and make a shoot go smoothly. I will also explain the many little things I am thinking about in relationship to lighting, composition and being able to visualize a photo without losing touch with my couple. At the end of the day, the photos are for the couple and it takes balance of skill and personality to fully execute an honest, emotive session that is fundamentally sound or more importantly, visually stunning.

This outdoor boutique program will take place on the grounds of the plantation.

Learning Objectives:

1. Be able to build a system of communication with your couples that ensures maximum comfort and trust.

2. Learn to effectively plan and envision a shoot while making it a collaborative process.

3. Recognize the elements that make visually pleasing photographs with true emotion.

4. Discover how to establish a genuine relationship with your subject."
