Speed Shooting with Gerson Lopes

Gerson Lopes demonstrates his method of “speed shooting” celebrities and high-profile clients who don’t have time for a standard shoot. Celebrities don’t book standard photo shoot because there are so many photographers who already want to shoot them. They typically will hire a photographer before hitting the red carpet, so that they can have their own images of red carpet looks that they have approved of. This means a photographer will typically only have about 15 minutes with them in a hotel room before the celebrity heads to the event.

Gerson shares his favorite equipment and methods to create stunning images with a very portable set up of only one or two lights and a V-Flat. He also brings you into his improvisational creative process, and shares how he works with celebrities and their agents, who have their own aim for the shoot.

Learn how to get amazing shots in just 15 -20 minutes. While Gerson developed this speed shooting method for working with celebrities, you can adapt this to your own studio for other clients who are pressed for time, or just so you can make the same amount of money in less time.


Gerson has been behind the scenes at The Portrait System for years. See one of his early shoots in this fabric draping course.

Sue is not just a mentor, in the area of photography; she's a life coach in the area of living. Simply put, The Portrait System, was the best investment I have made into myself, and my business, since it began! David Lee
The Portrait System allowed me to grow from hobbyist with a borrowed camera and a dream, to professional portrait photographer with a six-figure business. There is no way I would be here without her education. Cat Ford-Coates
The Portrait System has given me ALL of the tools needed to take me from a "shoot and burn" photographer making less then $200 a session to a portrait photographer with a studio and over a $1200 average and growing in less than 4 months. Ashley Lindsey
The Portrait System has been the single-most impactful thing I've incorporated into growing my business, and in many ways, my life! Andrew Knowles
Building a successful and sustainable photography business is no secret anymore. The Portrait System provides you with every tool you need to master your craft, how to market and sell and overall how to become the best version of yourself. You just have to do the work! Ursula Schmitz
By far the best investment you will ever make for your business and for yourself. I will never let my subscription lapse. Never. Liz Wikstrom Barlak
In my photography journey, I have tried many educational platforms, but none felt as comprehensive as The Portrait System. Without a doubt, if not for Sue and her teachings, I would not be seeing the level of business success that I am seeing today. Neon Howe
