  • And An Exciting Announcement!!

If there is one thing I love above the off-season, it’s the chance to get things done that I’ve been trying to get done for a whole year!! Today I’m announcing a BRAND NEW FREE MINI-GUIDE DOWNLOAD!!

This isn’t going to be a long post… why you may ask? Well, because it’s very simple to explain… you can do SO MUCH MORE in the locations that you’re shooting in! You really can.

Instructing a 30 year old man to pose in a certain way took A LOT of confidence! … And sometimes I didn’t have it because I didn’t know how to pose a man like I knew how to pose a woman!
