Cameras, lenses, lights and modifiers are all tools that photographers use but these are NOT what makes a great beauty shot or portrait.

Great images require planning and collaboration and are the result of great problem solving. Joe will take us through a deep dive of his entire process, and he will detail how he plans and executes a shoot. Covering everything from shoot prep with both his subjects and makeup artists sharing his communication and posing techniques as well of some of his favorite beauty lighting arrangements.

He will even include some tips on how you can incorporate these types of images into your portrait business to increase profits!
