This is a terrific, packed video series by Bernie on posing people for portraits! Great learning opportunities include live video shoots of Bernie posing and talking to the subjects, explaining and showing us what works in various poses, and what doesn't, tips & tricks on using body position, triangles & lines, and many other techniques to get great shots of groups and couples. Bernie tells you what works, shows why it works, then provides downloadable reference handouts of various poses & photos we watched him set up. My head is swimming with ideas to try!

stars-5Bernie gives best value
I have purchased all of Bernie's classes. This posing class is like all the others. He provides excellent materials and with his British home style humour, he makes the instruction both educational but fun also. He breaks the sessions into short sections to ease repeating sessions to review valuable tidbits over and over

stars-5Family posing
The content is both comprehensive and informative, including the instructor's delivery which makes the course interesting and engaging. Bernie never fails to give value for money in all his courses. Enjoyed being with you Bernie.


These reviews are for my other courses, the posing course has only just been published

Loved this course>
The course presents so much information in such a simple to understand way. I learned so much and highly recommend this course to anyone who would like to sharpen their photography skills. I would definitely take any another photography course offered by this instructor. .I only wish I could have given the course 10 stars. I have taken several other courses at Udemy and loved them, but this one is my favorite.


Recommended for quick and easy to understand photo skills.
I've tried reading books and I've tried searching online to improve my photography skills. I've learned way more and have better understanding in the past 3 days than I have in the past 6 months. Wish I'd found this course sooner so I didn't waste money on the books

stars-5Absolutely Brilliant - recommended
I have learned so much from watching these nuggets, without them some things would never have occurred to me. Because these are bite sized it allows me to dip in and out when I have time and I don't get overloaded with too much information. They are concise and clear without any waffle - they tell you what you need to know and situations of when you should use it.
I've recommended this course to some many folks whether they've been taking photos for years or are just getting started. I absolutely recommend this to everyone who wants to take better photos and doesn't have too much time.

stars-5Great course!
This was an amazing course! I especially liked the lectures on top shade and leading lines which I have used over and over again. Thanks for such a great course!

stars-5Fantastic Course!
a very comprehensive and useful course. I would recommend this for beginners (little knowledge of camera/DSLR usage) and intermediate photographers (knowledge of camera concepts but still not getting the shots you wanted). It closes in on a lot of knowledge gaps as well as fine tunes already known concept

stars-5Great course! Learned a ton!
Great course that covers tons of different topics. A perfect course to get started!

stars-5Excellent Course!
I am a bit more advanced than some of the lesson's in this course but I did learn a lot from Bernie and really look forward to taking some more of his classes. If you are a beginner with a DSLR then this course is an absolute must if you want to get that camera off of auto mode.

stars-5Love this!
I love Bernie's approach. Such a great instructor, makes all concepts much simpler and a very refreshing presenter. Well worth it!

stars-5Simply Great
... and 'simply great'describes the course the lecturer and content.
If you imagine being out with Bernie on a shoot and asking what would be the best settings for this situation you have all the answers to give you a more than average chance of some great Photos.I would like to go to the next stage, is that possible?
Thank you Bernie I really enjoyed being with you.

stars-5Something for everyone
No matter your skill level you should find plenty of information in this course that could teach you some new tricks. Bernie's presentation style is easy to follow and understand and this enables him to get his points across clearly. If you take this course I suggest that you also invest in Part 2 which carries on from where this one leaves off.
