There is an art to posing models—an art that photographers must develop in order to succeed. Beginning models in particular rely on the experience of the photographer to guide them to flattering poses, but even experienced models need the photographer to fine-tune their look in each image. When creating images for a model's portfolio, each pose must showcase the model's best attributes, conceal any problem areas, and appeal to her own aesthetic sensibilities and personality. Additionally, each image must be designed to appeal to the kinds of clients whom the model is hoping to gain employment. These may include designers, magazines, jewelers, and other professionals in the industries where models are employed. In this book, Billy Pegram presents the skills needed to achieve these goals. Concise text paired with dozens of step-by-step photos show you what to look for—and, more critically, what to avoid—when photographing models. A must-have for any photographer creating fashion images or fashion-inspired portraits.

  • Evaluating the model to determine her best features and any problem areas
  • Establishing a basic pose, then refining it through small adjustments
  • Posing techniques to make each part of the body look its best—from head to toe
  • Getting the right expression and mood in your images
  • Tips for working with new models
  • Specific posing guidelines for models seeking work in a variety of specialties—from catalog work to swimsuit photography
