Headshot Pro StanceMats
Headshot Pro StanceMats
Help your headshot clients stand in the correct position each and every time with Fairfield Photography’s Headshot Pro StanceMats.
Pro StanceMat Purchase Options
Single Foot Placement Mat – $30
One mat emphasizing either a left foot forward or right foot forward stance position. A great way to ensure a consistent starting position so all the resulting images have the subject facing the same direction.
Two-In-One Mat – $30
The Two-In-One Mat combines the layout for both a left and right foot forward stance on one mat so you can turn each subject independently for the best pose. Ideal for situations where consistency of posing direction across all the subjects is not needed.
