…So, Max was in earlier and we had a chance to sit down and go over the shots.…And that was great.…I really enjoyed that a lot.…And now I've heard from Ashley, and she has…sent me two shots that she likes via email.…So, we're going to work on those right now.…One shot is for the wall, actually let me show you what she…wants to do for the wall, which I think is a very good choice.…And then the second shot is what she wants to use for her yearbook photo.…So, what I'm going to do is, because you look…at the shot and you're going, wait a minute…that's a horizontal shot, you told us earlier that…it had to be vertical, and that is true.…

In this course, photographer and educator Derrick Story details the art and the process of modern senior portraiture, from working with the subject and his or her parents to plan a shot list, to shooting indoors and out, to delivering the final shots. Along the way, he examines gear and workflow considerations, including lighting, sharing proofs, and post-processing.
And because senior portraiture is a potentially lucrative business, the course concludes with a discussion of various business angles, including developing a pricing strategy, connecting with local high schools, marketing through social media outlets, and more.
