Fashion photography is perhaps the most desired career for all aspiring photographers. What makes it difficult is that to succeed you don’t have to be the best at capturing the best angles, but you have to be the best at having important contacts.
In addition to this, you must be aware that to achieve this, you must live where fashion breathes like Milan, New York, Paris, or London.You must have tireless creativity to create unique pictures. To begin with, you must be willing to receive only the per diem for production.
To achieve perfect fashion photography, you need to have your own trusted team including stylist, makeup artist, and an assistant who has the same vision as you. This can take quite some time.
Some clients will want to walk all over you, giving you their opinions about the lights or the model’s poses. At these times, you have to make everyone respect your opinion and kindly say NO. This requires a lot of courage.
Your portfolio and your social networks should always be updated. You have to update it every month, filling it with pictures that show that you know how to create trends and that you can popularize them. Show that you can be a photo creator while being able to solve any inconvenience that comes up at the last minute.
Fashion photography is a creative expression that focuses on getting people to buy. At the end of the day, your job should be to get people’s attention to buy a certain product. No matter how creative you are this always ends up taking a back seat.
