  • Amazing course, Lindsay presents a ton of great content in a relatively short amount of time. She's got a great lively personality and keeps it fun and interesting. Great job fielding all kinds of questions on the spot - she really knows her stuff!
  • First off, I absolutely love the way Lindsay teaches. She shares a LOT of useful information and brings it in a light and cheerful way. There are plenty of examples and photos along with her descriptions. It's a pleasure to watch! This was my first course on posing and I learned a lot. Would definitely recommend this course!
  • Excellent work! Often I knew when my portrait photography was missing something or when it just wasn't quite right but I couldn't put my finger on why. After this class, I've been able to identify why some photos looks great and why others were lacking. Lindsay expertly (and humorously) communicates how to pose clientele and gives hundreds of tips on how to improve your skill. She is excellent in her field. Give it a go!
