I am a pretty experienced portrait photographer and am just moving into fashion shoots and weddings. I bought this book as I wanted some inspiration for new poses. It is absolutely BRILLIANT. Not only does the author demonstrate lots of really good poses, he explains (really well) why certain poses work for certain ages/body types etc and why others don't. There are examples of poses that work and poses that don't so you can see what a difference a change of pose can make.

I've seen books on posing before that are virtually all text, and the text hasn't been very useful, and I've seen books that are really just a collection of photos of different poses for you to try to replicate. This book has the best of both - USEFUL text with plenty of photos. Very glad I added this one to my collection!

I loved this book. I am relatively new to portraiture and found it very informative. Jeff explains how to pose your subjects so as enhance the overall look of the client ie make the waist look slimmer, how to position hands and hide the not so flattering bits like the necks on more mature persons.

An easy learn format for the busy individual. We watched as a group which only enhanced our interaction and discussion regarding topics presented in DVD. Unfortunately a rather male orientated stance is presented. A female co-presenter and some male models would have offered a more balanced view. The DVD is a good starting point (or review) to learn the foundations of posing for portrait photography. The content will improve your portraiture. Very recommended.
