Mike Larson speaks to Nashville Jan 27th | Photo Tips

Yesterday we had an incredible afternoon with the Nashville PUG and the fabulous Mike Larson. Mike, is on a twenty city speaking tour of Pictage User Groups (AKA: PUGs). He is sharing his story, posing techniques, and business insights to all portrait and wedding photographers.

This has been my fourth time seeing Mike speak and has by far been my favorite. The first thing you will notice about Mike is his intense passion. He strives for complete excellence in relationships with his clients, in his quality of photography, in his business operations, and in his ability to be a leader to his staff as well as the photography community.

Hearing Mike speak always inspires me to be a better leader in both the Nashville photography community and the community of photographers we are a part of throughout the country. Whitney captured this photo of me looking very studios.

My good friends Chris & Tosha Barber we’re gracious enough to model for the afternoon. Due to the blistery cold weather we spent most of the time indoors as Mike shared his techniques of having the models come up with fictitious scenarios to talk about. Of course Chris had his wife and the rest of us in stitches while Mike captured their reactions.

We eventually all braved the evening weather and headed outdoors as Mike continued to share some posing and lighting techniques.

If you are a photographer and have not heard Mike speak, I encourage you to do so. You will leave with greater insight and inspiration. If you have never been to a PUG come join us in Nashville each month or find one in your local area. You will not be disappointed with this amazing gathering of photographers.

I hope to see you soon!
