Go on location with commercial photographer Douglas Sonders as he takes you through his approach to advertising photography – an approach that has led him all over the place from hanging out of a helicopter to hanging out backstage at the Grammys. You’ll get Douglas’ unique take on everything from client interaction, pre-production, and assembling a creative team to his lighting techniques and method for coaching portrait subjects to get the reaction he needs. Then, meet Douglas’ personal retoucher and expert compositor, Justin Paguia for the post-production process.
In this course, Joe McNally brings viewers along on a day of corporate photography. During this day-long shoot, Joe gives a series of examples of executive portraits and boardroom setups. During these lessons, Joe talks about finding solutions to portraiture. He discusses lighting set ups, how he manages people, how he tackles lighting problems, and how he keeps the clients happy, with an emphasis on making them and their brand look good.
