A Boudoir Photographers E-Book

I am a photographer that shoots boudoir, and who also runs 1-2-1 mentoring and practical boudoir photography workshops for other boudoir photographers. And on the 25th March this year (2019), I will be releasing my first boudoir educational e-book course. I love helping other photographers and sharing my experiences and knowledge gives me great fulfilment. It’s not always possible for photographers to attend my studio due to distance, and 1-2-1 Skype mentoring isn’t for everyone. Plus, who doesn’t love a good work-book at hand anyway?

The e-book covers the many aspects to creating beautiful boudoir photographs in great detail. It can be worked through at your own pace, and can be used as a guide whenever you feel the need. In it I share a fountain of knowledge that I have gained through years of practice. It’s jam-packed with formulas which work for me and how I create my images. I’m not saying it’s the only way to photograph boudoir, as there is no right or wrong way, but it’s the way that works best for me. I really will be sharing my greatest secrets!

Who is it for?

This e-book is designed for anyone who already photographs boudoir, or who is thinking about getting into boudoir photography. Most principles can be transferred to other genres too, such as portraiture in general, as the light work and practical exercises will work just the same. There are no rules as to who and why.

What is specific about this e-book is how to work with both real clients and models; how to help them feel more at-ease in-front of you and your camera, how to take flattering photographs of all body-types, how to use a woman’s vulnerability to tell their story, how to produce the type of images you want to and show to attract your dreams clients, and much much more.

What will you get?

  • You will get an in-depth e-book with visuals including camera setting info, my processes, work-flow and formulas.

  • A step-by-step workbook guiding and encouraging you into creating the images you desire filled with practical exercises and techniques to follow with tips.

  • There’s also some great bonuses thrown in, which include; two Lightroom tutorials, how to prepare yourself emotionally before a session, my actual client preparation guide and brochure, and what’s in my camera bag.

If you are interested in this e-book please feel free to sign up (at the bottom of this post) to be the first to hear when it’s available.

A gift for him - boudoir photography

Many women come to me for a boudoir shoot for many different reason; some because they want an extra special gift to give to their partner, presented beautifully as tasteful artistic images of themselves looking and feeling amazing in a beautiful bespoke album or print set. Others are celebrating a milestone and wish to document this time in their lives. Some are a birthday gift to themselves, or they have been bought the shoot as a birthday gift from their partner or friend.  Or they are getting married and want to surprise their soon-to-be husband the night before their wedding.  Whatever the reasons (and honestly you don't even need one), I have seen women completely transformed during a shoot. It's so empowering and inspiring to see and I can't think of any better way to show you how amazing and beautiful (inside & out) you really are. 

There is absolutely no need to feel nervous (although this is natural) and you are in safe hands. With the option of being pampered and spoilt before the shoot, this allows you time to relax and look forward to creating some beautiful images.

Get in touch for an informal chat with no pressure, and hopefully together we will capture you embracing who you truly are.

Thanks to the beautiful Sophie who came to me for a boudoir session (with her pooch Bella) & for allowing me to use her stunning photographs for this post xoxo
