It's All in the Details

Join Kristy Steeves as she shares her unique approach to posing bridal couples, seniors, children and families. Her tips make it easy for photographers to understand how to pose men, women and children, and get beautifully sculpted images for their clients through posing and lighting techniques. She delves into the details on individual body parts starting with the head and going all the way down to the toes. Her basic foundations will also help photographers who enter print competition as well as those interested in becoming Certified Professional Photographers. This session will be more than a lecture; models will be on hand to help demonstrate effective posing to improve your images.



Kristy Steeves graduated from Indiana University with a double major in journalism and political science. While in college she took two photojournalism classes and absolutely loved it. Despite her love for photography she pursued her goal of becoming a news reporter. She worked as a television journalist for 25 years. During that time she won four prestigious Emmy awards for her story telling, including news reports on a 9/11 rescue team at the World Trade Center, an in depth look at the dangerous lives of drug dealers and a police SWAT team drill competition. Her love of photography eventually lured her away from television. In 2009 Kristy made a life changing decision and switched careers. Now, instead of being in front of the camera, she is behind one. Kristy is a Master Photographer and a Certified Professional Photographer. She specializes in studio portraits and weddings. In November 2016 Kristy won first place awards at the state competition in Ohio for having the highest scores in both the children and general portrait categories. In 2015 she won the J. Anthony Bill award for having the most outstanding portrait in the state of Ohio. She has been an Ohio Top 10 Photographer. Kristy has  also been a Gold and Silver Medalist at the International Print Competition and Kodak Gallery award recipient at the Northeast District Competition.
