Derek Heisler - Directing models vs. posing them during photo shoots

Creative Director and Conceptual photographer Derek Heisler explains the benefits of directing your models rather than just posing them during your shoot. Here's a small bit from his talk in Toronto May 11th, 2017. We want to thank Canon Canada and Vistek for sponsoring the event.

It's about the car, the girl and the road.

It's about the car, the girl and the road. All distractions we need. The open road gives us the freedom to stretch our wings and refresh. The car gives us the power we need to travel through miles and miles of thoughts. And the girl, the girl. Music reminds you of her, glimpses of her smile in your peripheral. She's the angel and the devil on your shoulder on an adventure we all need to take. Take a deep breath, this is what life is about.
