The Posing Issue

Introducing our first ever posing issue! In this special July/August edition, you’ll learn from the pros—Lara Jade, Kristie Lee, Ana Brandt, Tamara Lackey, Jen Rozenbaum, Roberto Valenzuela and Danielle Libine to name a few—on how to do posing right, whether you are working with professional models, regular people, adorable newborns and kids, or even pets!

Plus, don’t miss an interview with the amazing Vicky Papas Vergara, who directed and photographed our stunning cover image. This super talented Melbourne, Australia-based portrait artist swept the WPPI awards earlier this year (literally taking home every honor in the Beauty/Boudoir category, as well as becoming the first recipient of the inaugural Bill Hurter Excellence Award)—and it was only her second year submitting work!

“This is one of my very first studio shoots I ever did, so I spent a bit more time making an effort to do something really pretty, beautiful and elegant,” says Papas Vergara. “It was also my first time shooting full length, so I was very aware of silhouettes and shapes.”
