Model Photography/ Fashion Photography:
Model/Fashion photography is a quickly emerging genre of photography, becoming incredibly popular in recent times. It is one of the most profitable areas of photography. The main idea of model/fashion photography is to showcase clothes, accessories, and footwear. Fashion photography is used extensively for advertisements and fashion magazines, apart from fashion shows and events.
What is model photography?
Model photography shoots are generally used in the fashion industry, whereby a model poses for a photographer either at a studio or in a specific shoot location.A model photography shoot can also refer to a common practice where a photographer is taking photographs of a model for the model's portfolio.
Typically, model photographers connect with model agencies when finding models for their photoshoots and go through a casting call process.However, agencies can be expensive, and if you’re a beginner photographer, they may be hesitant to work with you. Instead, it’s best to steer away from professional models who might also need some experience — it’s a mutually beneficial relationship, and will help keep your studio photography credit card expenses down.
You Have to Start Somewhere
Let’s be honest, no model or agency is going to hire you if you don’t have any modelling or fashion pieces in your portfolio. You have to start somewhere, so find some friends who are up for modelling for you and hone your skills practicing with them.
Get hold of necessary equipment and people
Model and lookbook photography often requires additional equipment that you won’t need if you do landscape or street photography. Obviously, you can make use of the natural light if you shoot outdoors, but it won’t be always possible.
In this case, you will need to rent a photography studio and get all the necessary lighting equipment that includes reflectors, strobes, flashes, and so on.
Apart from it, quality model photography sometimes means that you will need to be working together in a team with make-up artists and stylists.
Start Working with Real Models
After working with several friends, you should at least have a handful of shots that you’re happy with, now it’s time to move on working with some real models and designers.
Make it Easy to Find Yourself
Once you have an impressive portfolio and have worked with several models and designers you’ll find that people will start coming to you. Just like anything else in this world, when someone sees that their friend has something nice, they will want it too. When the people you’ve worked with post your photos on their social sites and catalogs, their friends and acquaintances in the industry may want to work with you too. Make sure those people that want to work with you can find you easily by having an online portfolio, Facebook, Twitter, etc…
