New Tutorial Video! For a limited time, "Photographing Models" is available for pre-orders… If you pre-order now, save over $50 off of the release-date price.

As a photographer, my work depends less upon gear and equipment than it does my ability to communicate with my subject. I have shot with high-end cameras, but I have also had repeated success with “toy” cameras, Polaroids, and the camera on my phone. The lighting in my work consists of anything that emits light: the sun, candles, flashlights, neon signs, paper lanterns…and the list goes on. My “studio” is most often a simple blank wall with a window nearby, casting light onto the subject.

I have always found that successful shoots have little to do with equipment – rather, they are the result of thorough and effective communication between the photographer and the model. The ability to effectively convey your ideas and give direction during a shoot is vital. This 2-hour video focuses primarily on the importance of communicating and interacting with your subject, from conceptualization to the successful result. Topics include:

- Finding models to work with
- Planning and conceptualizing shoots
- Etiquette
- Giving direction effectively
- Establishing rapport with your subject
- Equipment

Join me and model/photographer I-Got-Shot as we discuss the often-overlooked details of how to get the best results when working with models.

Pre-order your copy today for over $50 off the release-day price of $150…


JaimeIbarra's Profile Picture
Jaime Ibarra
Artist | Professional | Photography
United States
I am an accomplished Flamenco guitarist/composer, a graphic designer, and (for the past few years of my life) a photographer.

I have traveled to many points on this planet. I possess a hyperactive imagination, along with an obsessive need to create. I have a tendency to romanticize just about everything in my life. Oh...and I hear colours (synaesthesia). Simply-put, my 'style' is the visual amalgamation of these things.

What a talent! Interesting costumes and backgrounds that catch the eye and the imagination yet don't detract from the subject (very hard to do). Exquisite lighting - beautiful women. All that and an accomplished guitarist. You must have to fend off the ladies with a stick!

Thank you :)

(And I have the best lady in the stick needed) ;)

Hey! I was curious if you're the photographer of a piece called "Ascend". The model has short dark hair, long legs, and she's barefoot. It says you're the photographer, but I don't see the image in your profile.
