Surviving in the fashion world is not easy, as you are constantly trying to be on the top. Which means you tend to keep your health in the backseat. This is not only true for models, it is actually true for everyone in the fashion industry. As we are so consumed in our work, that we simply do not have the time to think about things that are affecting our health. I have been working as a professional fashion photographer for years now, and I can honestly tell you that the heavy equipment takes a toll on your body.
With technology on the rise, we have access to more equipment that is getting smaller in size, yet offering more. However, it is just not small enough to not affect our health. Apart from the heavy equipment, the additional stress is a huge issue, as it keeps on adding to your health. There is no doubt that some jobs are harder than others, and require a lot more than others do. Which is why you need to be careful of how much you are burdening yourself with. There is no about that the human body can take a lot of stress and baggage. But there will come a time when your body will start to give up.

In the last few years, I have been to my chiropractor more than ever, as I was so focused on building my career, that I kept putting off my health. But it came to a point where I could no longer take up the heavy load, which is why I had to make some necessary changes. These changes were a huge issue in the beginning as I was so used to taking a heavy load that covered all that I could possibly need. However, the change is why make sure that I am still able to get out of bed and work each day.
Which is why I suggest that you keep your health a priority, as you do not wish to burn yourself out before your career takes off. Try to keep your energy focused, and practice things that help you relax your body and mind. This way you will be able to keep up your career as a fashion photographer for long. It is hard to think about such things until and unless you come face to face with such a situation. As we all run on passion, and the fire that is lit inside of us keeps us going till we come to a breaking point. That is what the fashion industry is about, giving out your best and to keep pushing yourself.
This is not just the for the fashion photographers that carry the heavy equipment, it is for the everyone who works for long hours, that is bound to take a toll on your body and health. So try to take out time for your health, as there is nothing more important than your well being.
