Poding & Directing - Online Class - Ben Sasso
"This is the most in depth posing class I've ever seen! Prompts, videos, angles, posing flow, theory, etc. It's all in here and every single piece of it has helped me. I come back to it before every shoot!"
CODY
"Easily digestible, tangible material with a huge focus on creating images with heart! The Posing and Directing class has made directing so simple, and so much more meaningful than it ever has been for me.
Hands down, the best investment I've ever made into my art!"
CLARK
"There are a lot of classes from lots of different photographers about posing. This one blows all of the rest away! I’ve been looking for something more directing and motion based to move my posing, and this is exactly what I was looking for! This is going to completely change the way I shoot. THANK YOU!"
JENNA
"Bringing out genuine moments and real emotion just became so freaking simple for me! Thank you!"
MEG
"I was feeling stuck with posing. I felt like every session, I was doing the same exact thing with my clients and it lacked so much personality. There are things in this class I would have NEVER thought of. So many variations of the same poses, so many tips and tricks, and so many ways to get your client engaging in different ACTIONS. I’ll never go on another shoot without my book of notes from this class. EVER!
AMANDA
"This class doesn't skimp on anything. It's filled with practical prompts and cues, tons of tips for getting people to invest in the shoot, and downright inspirational articles on posing theory (and the behind the scenes videos were crazy insightful). I'm seeing honest connection in my images during every shoot now! Thank you!"
EMILY
"I thought my favorite part of this class would be the prompts and videos (which were amazing) but the posing theory section blew me away! I love how much thought Ben puts behind his posing and he lays it all out so clearly in this class. It's all gold."
DIANA
"This class is amazing! I took about 10 pages of notes and can’t wait to try these techniques out at tomorrow’s wedding. I’ve been shooting for 4 years now, and am constantly looking for new ways to energize my shoots, and bring new life and strong connections to my images. This posing class nails that. Thanks Ben!"
CAROLYN
"This is one of the most simple, yet best educational decisions I’ve made. I completely ate up every single word Ben had to say regarding posing and directing. This is a GAME CHANGER for me!"
JULIE
"Honestly, one of the best classes I’ve taken in my photography career. All of the tips and tricks bring so much more into a shoot, and to have them all in one place is phenomenal! I truly believe this class will bring my work to the next level, and It's brought me so much inspiration.
Thanks for the killer class, Ben! It’s SO worth it."
