The Perfect Photoshoot Playbook will help you plan, participate in, and get the most out of your professional photoshoot. You will learn how to begin planning and searching for the right photographer, you will create a shot list that resonates with your brand, you will learn what clothes to wear (and avoid), and you will even learn some best practices and tips on how to manage, sort and use photos online after your shoot is over.
The course has 3 sections: before, during and after your shoot. You will learn what to do from day one through the end of your shoot and beyond. Get the most out of your photoshoot. Make all the time, energy and investment work for you in the best ways possible.
I created this course from the perspective of a professional photographer with over a decade of experience. I've gathered and shared everything I know about what works and what doesn't work for a professional shoot to help you get the most from your shoot!
