You might ask how I am able to get such wonderful cooperation and professionalism from my photo subjects. It has a lot to do with the way you present yourself when asking people to pose for you and when directing your shoots. Always have a calm and commanding presence without being overbearing. Here, as you can see, I am being taken very seriously by my subjects. You have to BE the professional, an believe it. When in doubt and it seems all composure is lost, I just sob pitifully, often that is all I need to bring the photo shoot back under control.
