Australian fashion, portrait, and lifestyle photographer Julia Trotti made this helpful 11.5-minute video that provides tips and tricks for photographing men who don’t have any experience with posing and modeling.
One example pose covered by Trotti is having her subject lean against a wall in various ways.
“Sometimes when taking standing photos of males, photos can look a little too straight and kind of square,” Trotti says. Leaning up against walls “can cause a really nice shape to the body that’s not quite straight.”
“These posing tips are great for general portrait sessions, groom portraits at a wedding, engagement shoots and senior portraits,” Trotti says.
