Taking the Fear Out of Group Photography

While most of the photographic industry has gravitated towards headshots and mini-sessions, Bert has focused on groups of all kinds. His studio, located in the Chicago suburbs, is known for their family group photography as well as corporate and event groups. From a group of only two to his largest family group of 83, Bert can show you how to easily and efficiently get groups organized and photographed in a short time which keeps the clients happy. This is a working workshop so be prepared to ask questions and get your group posing hat on!

The day will start with a discussion on how he works with groups to not only organize, but communicate and sell while he is shooting. He will walk you through his easy to use "Eight Levels of Group Posing" and his use of chairs, stools, benches, and posing blocks to make things flow. He will talk lighting and posing for both fun, casual groups and traditional or corporate groups.

There will be various models/groups used to demonstrate the techniques and styles. Attendees will be encouraged to get involved and get hands on while Bert mentors and assists you in getting it better.

There will be a 45 minute break at 5pm for pizza and refreshments at this great location provided as a part of your workshop fee. Then we will continue to work until sunset at 8pm and after. Bert and his crew will stick around afterwards for anybody who wants to continue the conversation, or enjoy a cold brew after a great day of learning!
