Register The goals of a portrait are to provide an impression of a person's physical appearance and/or to reveal aspects of the person's identity.

The studies will primarily focus in two aspects: 1) photographic techniques such as composition, lighting, and posing; photos sessions and environments; 2) people skills to approach, interact and develop good portraits. This includes but it’s not limited to generosity, collaboration, empathy, trust and assertiveness.
The goal is to understand two basic principles in portraiture:
“The human first, the photographer second. “
“No two individuals are the same; no two photo sessions are the same”.
