A master photographer shares techniques for stunning group portraits

Filled with images by accomplished portrait, fashion, and wedding photographers, this is a resource for photographers seeking inspiration for their own work when capturing group images. Designed for ease of use, the sample portraits in this guidebook are grouped according to the number of subjects included—working from small groups of three up to larger groups including 10 or more people—and within each section, the portraits are further subdivided into how much the frame shows of the subjects, from close head-and-shoulders portraits to three-quarter-length images and full-length shots. The hundreds of samples provide inspiration and are easily replicated, allowing photographers to customize the source material to meet any type of need.


“A breathtaking collection of 190 color images and plenty of top-quality advice.”  —Shutterbug on Professional Portrait Posing

“The book is gorgeous, informative, and easy to understand.”  —San Francisco Book Review on 500 Poses for Photographing Brides
