Tamara Lackey and Joe McNally recently taught together in the remote Amazon Rainforest in Ecuador and join forces again to teach photography in the North - the Lofoten Islands of Norway. The Northern Lights are on the "bucket list" of many, and now we are excited to announce an opportunity of a lifetime.

Tamara Lackey Posing Playbook 5-Star Reviews

Anyone who has photographed children knows: kids don’t really do posing. But, as the photographer, it’s your job and your responsibility to deliver lasting, impactful images in which kids look great. More importantly, the goal is to create photographs of kids that are authentic, engage their spirit, and convey their unique personalities.

So how do you get beyond the “cheese” smile? How do you harness the wild energy of a kid who won’t stop moving? How do you create energy and dynamism with a kid who just seems…bored and not into it? How do you do all that and achieve a compelling composition with flattering light and the proper exposure?

Tamara Lackey has been photographing children and families for years, and in The Posing Playbook for Photographing Kids, she teaches you her strategies and techniques for successfully posing and photographing children. The book begins with a discussion of “organic posing,” an approach to directing the subject that focuses on making small adjustments that build up to a successful shot. Tamara moves on to the psychology of photographing children, covering how to read your subjects, work with different personality types, and elicit genuine engagement. She also discusses gear, accessories, composition, lighting, and camera settings.

With all travel details seamlessly managed, we will explore the Maasai Mara Game Reserve in Kenya, a stunning preserve with the highest concentration of big game seen anywhere. Halfway through our adventure, we will fly via private charter to Uganda, the Pearl of Africa.
