lesson 1: Executive Portrait Part 1 (free course preview)

In this first lesson we join Bill on location in the boardroom for a series of executive portraits. These portraits need to be elegant, simple, powerful, and fast.

9min, 36sec
lesson 2: Executive Portrait Part 2

You can vary the feel and the mood by moving to a seated pose, bringing in the reflection from the table, and having the subject make subtle changes in expression.

7min, 41sec
lesson 3: Executive Portrait Part 3

The final shoot in the executive portrait series takes us out on to the balcony, where Bill demonstrates how to balance light from the strobe on the subject's face with available daylight for a very natural looking outdoor portrait in a corporate setting.

2min, 5sec
lesson 4: Mother and Child

Creating environmental portraits is not always a walk in the park. In this lesson Bill creates a series of outdoor portraits with a mom and her three year old son. Being able to remain flexible and creative even when things don't go as originally planned is the key to getting the shots your client will love.

7min, 28sec
lesson 5: Portrait of a Chef Part 1

A working kitchen is a challenging setting for an environmental portrait due to all the reflective surfaces. Bill demonstrates a few different ways to approach this scene.

7min, 27sec
lesson 6: Portrait of a Chef Part 2

A slight change in camera position can make a big difference in conveying a sense of the scene and helping to tell the story of the subject.
