How to Pose Swimwear Models

Joey Wright teamed up with Fstoppers to create a full length tutorial on swimwear photography. This short excerpt from the tutorial focuses on posing. If you’re not working with a professional model, this video will help you quickly spot and correct common posing mistakes made on set. This skill applies to every genre of photography, not just swimwear shoots.

I love how he communicates with her.. That is key when getting portraits..

your6FIGUREmentor says:

I know that girl! LOL! She’s my Fashion Model/MBA student mentee’s best friend!

Linusphotographie says:

Nice Video

Omkar S says:

You’re tearing me apart Lisa

jootai says:

So what is the command for her to start sucking yo dick?

Keith Snyder says:

This was a pretty helpful video. The talk with Lisa was great to see how to go about it. I haven’t done much people photography, and I got pretty nervous on a project I’m working on with some people who aren’t even models because I want to be clear but not come across as bossy. The “grabbing your chin” and “grabbing your face” is much better than the pointing around I was doing! I also didn’t realize that discomfort was a good indicator.

Alexander Merker says:

awesome video guys, thx for that!
btw. which song is this, playing in the beginning. liked it a lot!

My burnt Diary says:

I m intrstd in modals photography …soo tell plzz what shud i go for doin …??

daniel junior pilote says:

Absolute legend! Seriously this piece of tutorial is way better than most of the other videos ive seen on this!

Garry Vancauwenbergh says:

Selling your own vision on a DVD and asking 300 bucks for it is insane.  If youlook well, you see directly that Lisa worked with him before. The show must goes on , this is typical for USA.

Ahmed diamond العامري says:

good combination music as usual with the girls movement but old

edgon says:

Interesting but $300 is too expensive.

Oliver Rensch says:

Lisa is very Hot 😉

Jared Kinley says:

Seriously you guys did awesome I sent this to a few people models and photographers because we all need to know how to pose!

Zirnigais says:

Very useful video !

Elvis says:

The gestures are great!

Subodh Khanal says:

Who else came just for the girls? 😛

Eli says:

This is an outstanding tutorial. Whoever is going to dislike it is an idiot!

Doug Smith says:

Overall I enjoyed the video. It reinforced somethings that I try to do already but I also got some great tips that I had not thought of. The squinting discussion was something that I do not agree with, but I almost feel that it was more of a semantics issue. I did not feel Lisa was really squinting. I think James Madison’s suggestion was good.

That said, I did find the first part of the video, while informative, a bit off-putting. The first thing I found a bit odd was you talking to her and she never saying a thing, just occasionally nodding her head rather mechanically. I would have preferred if you had talked to the viewers; more like the second half of the video.

The other thing that you did during the video that I felt gave a totally wrong impression was when you reached over and moved her into the position you wanted. While I am sure that you have probably worked with the model a lot and she was probably fine with it, I feel for a tutorial it gives the wrong impression to photographers just starting out. I always ask permission to touch the model or the model’s hair, even models who I know very well and who are more like family.

Pieter says:

Excellent tutorial. And that girl is gorgeous.

Pedro Hoffmann says:

Lisa you are gorgeous!

bla40955 says:

Awww…I tought Mela was going to appear on this one 🙁

Bryn Price says:

Does anyone else think that when Joey is posing Lisa it is like he is talking to Alexa? “Lisa, swing your left knee out from your body” 🙂

schalazeal07 says:

I learned a lot! 😀

szido says:

I watched the BTS videos, and I thought Joey was just a clown. But no! He is a real professional. 🙂

Bill Buffet says:


Fabrizio Evans says:

Joey is awesome! 🙂

Johnny Tig says:

She is looking Really Good

Romain M says:

Great advices, thanks !

David Styv says:

Amazing part of lesson. I must say of the posing lesson videos i’ve seen, it’s probably the best, at explaining also why he is choosing the poses, trying to get a balance / natural feel. I admit it’s really making me want to see more of Joey passing some of his tips like here.

Terri Brice says:

I’m trying to get in to this career can somebody tell me how about getting into this thank u so much

ThrasherTheKid says:

Damn, this is some good tutorial.

Robert Jackson says:

Great advice for posing the model

Reynaldo Mercado says:

Thanks. I learned some important things about it. About the innocent look of this model, sorry I didn’t see it.

REB3Lgirls V.colombiana says:

Why does he say Lisa so much?! Started getting annoying

Spawn Brimstone says:

Omg, Lisa! <3

Johnny Tig says:

I would give her an blanket.

Nick Fox says:

Next shoot, Tops off girls.
