If I had to choose one and only one book about posing, Picture Perfect Posing would definitely be my choice! Roberto’s approach is simply brilliant and never have I seen a system that clear and well explained about such a complex element of photography.
This book will teach you the ‘’language’’ of posing and how to use it in each and every situation depending on what you want to achieve. No more remembering poses, no more guessing and no more wondering what to do with each body part.
This will definitely help you step up your game and gain more confidence in front of your clients, whether it is a wedding or a commercial shoot.
I believe that no matter at what level of expertise you are, you can still benefit from this book.
Many thanks to Roberto Valenzula for being so transparent with his techniques and for sharing all this great knowledge.
About the Author
Roberto Valenzuela is a photographer based in Beverly Hills, CA. He developed his unique teaching style by following the same practice regimen he developed as a professional concert classical guitarist and educator. Roberto believes that it is not talent but deliberate practice that is at the core of skill and achievement. He has traveled to every corner of the world, motivating photographers to practice and break down the various elements of photography in order to master them through goal setting, self-training, and constant dedication.
Roberto serves as a judge for photographic print competitions in Europe, Mexico, South America, and the most prestigious international photography competitions held in the United States through Wedding and Portrait Photographers International (WPPI) in Las Vegas, NV.
Roberto teaches private workshops, seminars, and platform classes at the largest photography conventions in the world. He has been an international first-place winner three times and has been nominated by his peers as one of the ten most influential photographers and educators in the world. His first book, Picture Perfect Practice, became a bestselling photography training book, and it is sold worldwide.
Aside from the world of photography, Roberto is a high-performance remote-control helicopter pilot, a (not so good anymore) classical guitarist, and a table tennis fanatic. He is also a major foodie and is still searching for the most amazing red wine and the most pungent cheeses. His search for the perfect steak is over; he found it in the Japanese Wagyu.
