What the hell am I going to learn?
First and foremost, you are going to get to hang with us (which is pretty cool...but we are a little biased...) in a sweet house in West Central Florida (TBD, but we promise it will be kick ass) learning how to shoot, light, pose, market, and sell to gorgeous curvy babes.
In addition to honest, straightforward advice on how we both became successful boudoir photographers with an emphasis on plus size women, we want to help you feel more confident in your work thus, empowering more women and spreading the good word of boudoir!
Marketing & branding
This is one of Teri's strong suits and is one of the reasons she quickly became recognized as a leader in the industry, becoming a speaker at the Canada Photo Convention in 2017. Teri has used her "WHY" to help build a business that is bigger than photography and helped her hone in on the clients that she wants, instead of pandering to everyone, thus leaving her and her clients 100% satisfied. Teri will cover the top 7 elements that are essential to marketing her business (and don't be surprised if she gives you homework.)
Lindsay quickly became a force to be reckoned with, as she zipped to the top of the boudoir industry. Her passion for boudoir combined with her savvy sales instinct, makes her an excellent teacher when it comes to getting your dream paycheck and selling the products you want. Lindsay is well known for her ability to sell wall-art like it's going out of style (which it isn't btw) and she will share the secrets she uses to persuade her clients into the best products for them to preserve their timeless images. Demonstrated in a mock sales session, you will leave with an understanding of how one of boudoir's top photogs is slaying!
Posing & Lighting
Both Teri and Lindsay have an approach that clients find extremely sensual, sexy, and appealing. While both of them have their own distinct method of coaching and providing direction, their images reflect confidence, empowerment, and sensuality that has won both of them countless awards. As Lindsay and Teri are plus size goddesses themselves, they have come to understand the importance of learning how to make the body work to achieve beautiful lines and flawless formations.
In addition to posing, Teri & Lindsay both work with all types of lighting to give their clients the best versions of themselves possible. From Ice lights and ring lights to the beautiful natural light provided by the sun, Teri and Lindsay will go over their methods for harnessing the light and working with shadows to help their clients feel sexy and strong.
While I don't want to take away from the educational part of what we are going to teach, everyone is always curious about the shooting aspect. We will provide you with fully stylized models and explain our styling (as this goes a long way with plus size clients). For the shooting aspect of the day, you will have the opportunity to work in groups and one on one with the model in 2 settings: inside our stellar accommodations & the beach
After some research, I found that out of 100 websites I surveyed proclaiming that they love to photograph women of all sizes only 30% had photos of plus size clients AND of those 30 websites that had plus size clients, only 15% of them showcased MORE than 5 varied images of women with curves. Our aim is to have more photographers filling this gap as their is a large niche of babes wanting to feel good about themselves, but don't see themselves represented so they don't book a shoot. These shoot out sessions are your chance to add to your portfolio and galleries on your website and capitalize on a necessary market.
The first sessions of shooting will take place inside using available light. Lindsay and I will split ourselves off as "team captains" and work with a group of people each and the switch off to share our experience and advice. The accommodations will be chosen once we see how many attendees we have because we don't want to be too cramped, but I promise it will be glorious, sexy as hell, and ready for some babes to arch.
The second location will happen on the beach. This location is usually the most sought after and it will provide good experience for how to work with clients in a more public setting, with given light (hard and soft) and how you can settle their fears and get them to commit to their poses and really rock the shit out of their session. In addition, you are going to go home with some KILLER images that you probably won't get anywhere else.
