If you follow my work, you can see I do a lot of work with high school seniors. One thing to keep in mind is that if you work with clients around this age, they have likely not been in front of a professional camera much. First and foremost, you need to make them feel comfortable from the beginning. Since I am shooting sports then that’s usually what I talk to them about. Whether they are getting ready to start their season or just finished, I keep the conversation about them and their goals or what they accomplished that year. That being said, you also don’t want to talk TOO much and get in the way of shooting, so it is good to learn to do both at the same time. Because you aren’t working with a professional model, keep in mind the quicker the shoot is over, the better. Letting it drag on will cause them to lose interest and zone out. With this in mind, I always try to use a minimum of two angles with each setup.
