Couples Boudoir Workshop


Having difficulty posing or communicating to your boudoir couples ? Not sure how to work with a couple ? Then look no further than my Better Boudoir Bootcamp's - Couples Boudoir.

Photographing a boudoir couple can be intimidating and vulnerable for both the photographer and client. This hands on course will begin with Tammy demonstrating how she works with her clients while teaching lighting, posing and communication by using an experienced couple with a live shoot . It will then be followed by the “hands on” portion of the workshop where Tammy provides guidance to the attendees as they photograph real life clients themselves.

This 6 hour course will include the following itinerary:


I will provide you with an experienced couple to work with and go over the following :

Styling - Learn how to communicate with your clients on styling for their bodies. How to work with the hair/makeup artist to create a look for your client(s) .

Working with the female & male client - 
- How to use various poses for every body type to bring out their very best

- How to use available light to flatter them the best ( we will have two sets to demonstrate this )

Following along during a live shoot , you will watch as I communicate with the couple to create simple sexy poses to more intimate styles without removing their clothing . 

You will have a chance to practice what you have learned with our models, time permitting.

Lunch Break

Lunch / refreshments are provided , if you have allergies please advise when booking or bring your own bagged lunch


I will provide you with a real life couple of mine to work with and photograph with all you have learned in the first half of the course.

Working with the real life couples -

- How to make them feel at ease during this seemingly uncomfortable time .

- Using natural light, I will demonstrate and pose the clients on how to flatter them the best and bring out their chemistry . You will then take turns utilizing this knowledge to pose and photograph them .

We will also go over basic marketing and pricing to be successful in your business .

Question and answer throughout the course .

Skill level requirements : Must know basic camera functions. Beginner or intermediate photography.

What to bring : Camera,lenses , battery and memory card. Notebook and pen .
