Boudoir Masterclass - Friday 13th January

What Women Want From Boudoir 1.00 - 2.30pm

The number of talks on Boudoir at SWPP in January demonstrates how it is becoming an increasingly popular and potentially lucrative part of a photography business.

Having shot a lot of boudoir sessions - both for private clients and as part of my training for Aspire Photography Training - I know it is one of the things I most love to shoot. But why? For various reasons but probably most significantly the positive impact the images have had on women's lives and well being. And on a creative front because I love the female form.

I have a very strong visual aesthetic about what I think boudoir is and how I want to shoot it. Yet I see a lot of boudoir imagery that is more glamour than art. The truth is that boudoir is a very difficult discipline to do well and very easy to get wrong.

I've been thinking a lot about this whilst putting together my Masterclass for SWPP.

I'll be sharing my experience of shooting the genre for the last 2 years - how my work has evolved, tips on posing, lighting, styling but most importantly what the women who come to me want from a session. And the importance of shooting outside client work to improve your imagery.

If you are thinking of attending then let me know what YOU want to get out of it - send me an email: kate@katehopewellsmith.com
