Artists want to break out – do something different – break traditional rules and create works that are fresh and new. So how do we break the rules of posing to create images that are fun, creative and still make the client look fabulous?
As artists, we want to stand out, be original, and have a style all our own. We desire to be recognized by our images, and not blend in with the crowd. Because of this need, there is a growing trend to be hip and unconventional.

They need to add to the greater purpose – to make your client look great!
