WE HAVE TWO WORKSHOPS FOR LADIES:
THE WORKSHOP TAKES 7 HOURS (INSTRUCTION + PHOTO SHOOT) AND CAN BE DONE IN ONE FULL DAY OR TWO PART-TIME SESSIONS.
IT AIMS TO INCREASE YOUR SELF-ESTEEM.
IT USES PHOTOS TO GIVE YOU COMPLETE AWARENESS OF YOUR BODY AND OF WHAT YOU CAN DO TO IMPROVE IT.
IT MAKES YOU FEEL PRETTIER AND IN CONTROL OF WHATEVER YOU WANT TO CHANGE.
IT TEACHES YOU HOW TO POSE IN FRONT OF A PROFESSIONAL CAMERA, WHILE WE ANALYZE YOUR CURRENT LOOKS, SUGGEST NEW POSSIBILITIES (COLORS, HAIRSTYLE, MAKEUP) AND HELP YOU FIND WHAT WORKS BEST FOR YOU.
The product of this "rehearsal" will help you achieve goals related to your image, and aspects of your personality that can be perceived through the way you dress and move.
On the first session, after having answered some questions about your expectations, we will define your goals. You may have tons of beautiful headshots, but would like to learn how to express more confidence, sensuality and charisma for some specific need, either in your personal or professional life. We also would like to know what bothers you about yourself. Are are you satisfied with your weight and the general appearance of your body? Any features that you would like to emphasize or disguise? Everything that's important to you will be included in the program.
DIFFERENT EXERCISES WILL HELP YOU IMPROVE YOUR FACIAL EXPRESSIONS AND DEVELOP YOUR MOVES IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA. IT'S ALSO VERY RELAXING AND FUN AND HELPS BREAKING THE ICE.
Once we identify your strengths and weaknesses, we'll "play" in front of the camera. It's just a rehearsal, using the exercises that you've learned, so we can experiment with your different facets for the real photo shoot.
The next step is to find out which colors enhance your skin, eyes and hair, and which angles value your features, making you look young, confident, sexy or whatever you have defined as your goal. Continuing with the photo shoot, we'll discover which positions bring out the best of your bone structure and muscles.
BY GETTING TO KNOW YOU, WE'LL COACH YOU ON HOW TO WORK WITH YOUR BODY'S BEAUTIES AND FLAWS.
FOR EXAMPLE, IF YOU ARE ABOVE YOUR IDEAL WEIGHT, WE'LL GUIDE YOU TO POSITION YOURSELF IN A WAY THAT YOUR FACE WON'T LOOK TOO FULL, OR IF YOU ARE BELOW YOUR IDEAL WEIGHT, WHAT YOU CAN DO SO THAT YOUR CHEEKS WON'T LOOK SUNKEN.
SOMETIMES, SIMPLY IMPROVING YOUR POSTURE OR LIFTING YOUR CHIN DO THE DEAL. IT'S WHAT WE CALL "NATURAL PHOTOSHOP".
Once we have figured out what works for you, we're ready for the real photo shoot. During the session, there will be breaks to show you each batch of photos, and offer you more suggestions and techniques to improve your performance.
We work every days of the week, including Saturdays and Sundays.
PRODUCT + SERVICE:
AT THE END OF OUR WORKSHOP, YOU'LL RECEIVE A DIGITAL PHOTO PACKAGE THAT WILL REFLECT NOT ONLY THE BEST OF YOUR IMAGE, BUT ALSO OF YOUR PERSONALITY.
WE GIVE YOU FULL RIGHTS TO USE THEM IN YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA, RESUME, OR ANY FORM OF DIGITAL OR PRINTED MIDIA. AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, YOU TAKE WITH YOU THE "THERAPY" - THE JOURNEY YOU WILL HAVE GONE THROUGH.
REALIZING THAT YOU HAVE CONTROL OVER YOUR LOOKS WILL BRING THE INSPIRATION TO ALWAYS TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF: KEEP ON YOUR DIET, EXERCISE AND EVEN COMMIT TO SOME HIGH MAINTENANCE TREATMENT.
You can escape the mirror, but photos are like a document. They last forever. And good or bad, they force you to deal with the fact that you either you look good or you don't.
If you come work with us, your pictures will also have history. They will remind you of our chats, the goals you have stablished, your efforts to do that great job and your results. So if you keep them around you, even when you are tired or under stress, I can assure you that you will think twice before seating in front of the TV with a huge chocolate bar. lol
If you look great, keep doing what you are doing. And if you are not in your best shape, but you came to us, it means that you want to look better. So, look at your pictures every time you feel lazy or discouraged, and keep working to get to your goals!
PHOTOGRAPHY THERAPY DOES WORK. IT WORKED FOR ME, AND TO MANY WOMEN I HAVE HAPPILY WORKED WITH THIS PAST YEAR. MY BOOK "ME, BEYOND THE MIRROR" IS ABOUT THE POWER OF PHOTOGRAPHY TO STIMULATE OUR MINDS, AND ALL THE SUCCESSFUL STORIES OF WOMEN WHO REINVENTED THEIR LIVES BY REINVENTING THEIR LOOKS.
One of my "mantras" after Phototherapy is : "We cannot change other people, but if we put our minds to it, we can do a lot to change ourselves!"
Thank you for visiting our site. And we are here to help you!
