Anatomy of a Photoshoot
Do you want to see exactly how a photoshoot is done, from start to finish?
Do you want to learn all the little, sneaky tricks and techniques I use in a photoshoot?
Do you want to steal my best ideas for making sure your own shoots produce amazing results?
This guide is for professionals and amateurs alike who want to delve deep into the anatomy of a photoshoot.
I will walk you through two days of shooting with the outstanding model Maja Stina, a worldwide published model and performance artist.
Within this guide are hundreds of small tips that I have learnt and developed from years of shooting professionally for models, publications and fashion editorials.
You will learn how to use natural light, artificial studio lighting and how to combine them both.
I will show you advanced lighting techniques and tricks to create stunning images with ease.
You will see in detail how to work with a model to both create scenes and then develop posing techniques which really bring your story and vision to life.
All the images are shot on location and you will see how to read a location and then shoot to maximise the features and minimise the distractions.
I will show you simple post processing ideas for improving the impact of your images.
I would like to thank Maja Stina for her cheerful willingness and hard work in creating these images.
Maja is an absolutely outstanding model. Beautiful, intelligent, artistic, multi-talented, there are not enough superlatives to describe Maja and how wonderful it has been working with her.
You can find out more about Maja at
Images taken by amateur photographers of Maja at my workshops have been winning awards in national and international competitions. Some of those images taken by very inexperienced workers.
When you work with someone as striking and beautiful as Maja it is really hard not to get great images. In fact, you are really faced with two problems - which images do you not use and how can you possibly do justice to her?
But that is misleading - you really should be asking those questions on every shoot. So this book aims to show you the kind of thinking you should be going through on your shoots regardless of the model, their experience and beauty.
Topics covered include:
Planning the shoot
Posing for effect
Using Different Materials
Shooting for Impact
Shooting for Subtlety
Use and misuse of Props
Every photograph is documented, with details of thinking, concept, technique, camera settings and more.
170 pages, 200+ colour images, 15,000 words.
This is one of the most complete and thorough guides to you will find for a photoshoot.
This is one of the books I am most proud of - it really is like looking inside my mind as I shoot. I think this is a book you will read again and again - and each time you will take away something new from your reading.
It is a no-holds barred look too, sometimes things don't work as I intended. I explain why and how they could be corrected.
I look at the best moments and explain how you can re-create them.
Every page is full of practical advice
On each page and with each image I pick one practical aspect to discuss. You can see the image and read about the exact on-set things I did to capture the image.
This is not f-stop this, shutter-speed that - but the really crucial things. Why you should step left. Why you should crouch down. Why you should say this. Why you should look for that.
This is a practical book for teaching your brain and your eye to see better photographs from the start. This is not a technical book - though you will learn technical information.
You will see how to master composition, framing, posing and directing to achieve stunning imagery.
