How to Capture Expressive Headshots Workshop
Raleigh, NC
February 23 - 24, 2019

When I branded myself The Expression Coach™, I didn’t do it because it was a catchy title. I did because I actually coach my clients on how to express real emotion whenever they are in front of the camera. I took on the title, Expression Coach™ because I help people tap into their nonverbal communication skills to express a feeling that captivates the viewer. And now, I want to teach you how to become an Expression Coach ™.

My 1-1/2-day workshop “Speaking While Silent - How to Capture Expressive Headshots,” is designed to help you learn the foundations of how to creative the most expressive headshots ever!

You will learn how to ask the right questions and gather the right information you will need to coach your clients through their headshot session. You will also learn some of the important techniques in guiding your client to acheiving dynamic expressions.


Nonverbal communication accounts for more than 60% of how we receive and transmit information in conversation. We rely on the face, eyes, mouth, posture, gestures, and head & body movement to either send or receive nonverbal cues. Both our conscious and subconscious minds are at work when deciphering the messages that are being delivered by those with whom we communicate. Most of the time we interpret these signals as feelings.

When it comes to headshots, your client’s ability to use nonverbal cues to send the right message and communicate a real feeling to their target audience is imperative. When there is a lack of communication in a headshot, it becomes a missed opportunity to establish trust and convey a compelling message that captures the viewer’s attention.

Until now, unless you followed the blueprint of a handful of master headshot photographers, your ability to get your clients to express a positive feeling was extremely challenging.

But what if I told you that you could help your clients communicate various alluring and appealing unspoken messages in a headshot? What if I said that you could get one person to express many different nonverbal messages that would resonate with very different audiences? What if I told you that you can learn many essential techniques that can help you create your signature style for capturing the most expressive headshots your clients have ever taken?

Well, my friend, it is now possible!
