Why you need it?

Everyone agrees: Body Language is really important when it comes to portrait photography,
but no one explained why or how to use it… until now.

What makes this book unique?

There are a lot of very good books about body language and many that offer advice on how to run your photography business, but none who mix the two. 

This book is tailored to photographers allowing you to learn only the body language cues that are important to still photography, and as a certified body language trainer, I also show you how to use your own body language to boost your photography business.

Based on the latest science and years of research, and trial and error, everything in this book has been tried and tested in my studio with high success rates, and I know it can do that for you too.

What they are saying…

A few words from Professional photographers and editors about a photographer’s guide to body language.

The power of this book is in the range of physical vocabulary it brings to photographers and their clients that can both put everyone at ease and bring out the right image for the job. This book will help anyone, pro photographer or otherwise get closer to the results they need and with ease.

What I learnt is going to help me with my investigative photojournalist work, and I will be recommending it to my students.
Danielle mixes her great expertise with her body language certification along with her many years of shooting experience. This book is not only good for the professional photographer but also for any aspiring free lancers who would like to make their business and portraits work. Happy clients = happy portraits. A good read and learning experience for anyone.
Danielle Libine’s book fills a gap in the existing very rich technical photography guides. She writes a short but very clever little book with many useful tips to make better and accurate portraits and how your own body language can create a better working relationship with your client.

Although the target market for Dee’s book is photographers, I gleaned tons of useful information about how to hold my chin to disguise the ole’ chicken neck, how to show confidence and power without crossing my arms in front of my delicate innards, and what to do with my hands, which, believe me, I’ve always found a mystery.
Ann Sheybani, annsheybani.com
Everything in the book is useful. This is a perfectly practical guide to one of the most difficult aspects of portrait photography – the client’s connection with the camera, with tips and tricks that will make your next photo shoot shine. I’ve found that, as the photographer, I’m more confident on my side of the camera thanks to my new-found knowledge and this confidence transmits to the client’s resulting pictures.
This book was instrumental in helping me understand why I continuously got good, but not great, portraits. (…) I applied some of the techniques and very quickly noticed an improved experience in how my subjects interacted with the camera; more natural to say the last.
