Coaching in Posing and Appearance on Photos/Videos
(for "new faces" models, public figures, actors, ...)
Photographing quite a lot of both amateur and agency based models as well as "normal people" over the years, I think I developed a rather good sense of what works and what doesn't, what looks good - and why - and what doesn't. How to look cool and strong versus lovely and adorable, how to appear slimmer on photos, etc. etc.
Having occupied myself quite also with the theoretical aspects of this matters, I firmly believe that there is some element of "craft" which can be learned - not some magic or pure talent - to be successful in front of the camera (following the teachings of legendary Monte Zucker, his student Clay Blackmore, and many more renowned contemporary photographers like Lindsay Adler, Roberto Valenzuela, or Peter Hurley, to name just a few).
I offer shootings tailored specifically to new faces models just starting out in the industry or anyone who needs compelling portfolio images: Concentrating on posing and little details (hands, weight distribution when standing and so on) and giving feedback, analyzing and comparing photos immediately after they are created.
One of the things which makes posing hard for upcoming models is that often poses which feel silly look good poses which feel good look...well, not so good. Moreover models/clients often get to see only the very best of many hundreds of photos taken during a typical photo shoot. In my opinion that's not too ideal for the person photographed, as you often learn much more by "mistakes" - photos that do not work - and realizing why they don't work as good as the final selects. Developing an awareness for the impact of little things quite naturally leads to more convincing posing over time.

Delivery and Prints
Edited photos are provided both in social media friendly resolutions as well as high quality full resolution (usually about 7500 x 5000 pixels) versions.
Selection of your favorite images (which will be edited) possible by providing low resolution previews which can be comfortably flagged online in a browser (password protected web space).
I don't offer self-made prints. Instead I can highly recommend the professional printing service of WHITE WALL, which delivers very superb quality prints in a variety of sizes and canvas types etc. For a small fee I'll take care of sending data to White Wall (or any other service you might prefer) optimized for best image quality and you'll get prints delivered directly to your place by DHL.
Aquisition of a complete set of raw images possible. (But be prepared that a whole shooting usually comprises of 30 to 100 GB of raw data).
I adopt triple-redundant backup of data at different places (unless you don't like this). So you will be able to request more edited photos months or even years later if you should decide so.
Please ask for an individual offer. In most cases an hourly rate of 110,- € excluding VAT applies. Of course there will be adjustments for longer assignments.
