What It’s Like Behind The Scenes Of A Fashion Shoot
A fashion shoot is one of a model’s most exciting and fun experiences. It’s an opportunity to show off your style and have fun.
Behind the scenes of a fashion shoot, you can expect to be directed by an experienced photographer and stylist. They’ll be working with you to ensure everything goes smoothly and help you get into your best pose.
I love fashion photography because I love working with new people and seeing how they collaborate and work together.
Depending on the shoot’s mood, you may also be asked to change into different outfits. For example, you might be asked to wear shorts or a tank top if it’s a summer shoot. You might need to wear long sleeves and jeans or leggings if it’s wintertime. Sometimes the photographer will ask you to change into something more formal—a shirt and tie—to take part in a more serious editorial-style shoot.
Fashion shoots are a team effort
It’s not just the photographer or even the model— everyone involved, from the stylist to the makeup artist to the assistant, helps with all the logistics.
I love fashion photography because I love working with new people and seeing how they collaborate and work together. For example, when working with my models, I like to involve them in all aspects of the shoot: from choosing their outfits to deciding on accessories, even down to which direction they want me to take them in front of the camera.
In addition to working with new people every day, I also get to collaborate with different creative teams every day as well. My favorite part is when I work with other photographers and develop relationships with them over time—they become some of my dearest friends!
What goes into making the perfect photo?
Every fashion shoot is different, but there are a few things you can count on to make sure you’re getting the perfect shot.
First, ensure you have the space and light you need. If you’re shooting in a studio, make sure your model is comfortable with the area’s look. If they’re not satisfied, they won’t be able to perform their best.
Second, ensure that your model has a good sense of what’s happening behind them. They won’t have as much fun during the shoot if they don’t know what’s happening in front of them.
Finally, have fun! As long as everyone involved is having fun with it and putting their best selves forward for the camera, everything will turn out just fine!
