The world of fashion is so 'secret' - its kinda like a closed cult group that only a select few know of.
And who wouldn't? I love seeing what happens behind every shoot that inspires me so I thought I would show you beauties what happens when I am on a fashion shoot. This is my latest editorial fashion shoot featured in Huf Magazine this issue.
The single most important thing on a fashion shoot is the team. Being able to communicate your creative visions is essential in making a shoot successful.
A good photographer has a clear vision and the whole team must share that same vision. You have to picture the final image and talk about it, examine it, dissect it, love it and thats all before you even get to the shoot!
A good makeup artist & hair stylist must be able to understand that vision and do whatever it takes to get there. No point in coming in with pre-conceived notions of what you need to do for your portfolio.......you have to see the clothes, look at the model, 'feel' the set and then get busy.
A good stylist is prepared. Always prepared and organised. A stylist has an eye for playing with texture, colour, cut and style - and doing it with passion and attentiveness.
To top that off, none of these creatives can have an 'off' day - not on a shoot. Much like baking, if any ingredient is 'off' then the end result just isn't gong to taste that nice! An editorial fashion shoot is about working together and combining your teams skills to create some beautiful imagery.
