Putting together your first fashion shoot can be a daunting experience.
Even if you have successfully completed other kinds of photoshoots previously, or assisted an established photographer on fashion sets, being responsible for everything can be a whole different matter.
Shooting fashion photography is fun, challenging, and can be financially rewarding.
There is a lot to think about in order to ensure that the shoot goes smoothly. You need to choose all of your team members, from models to makeup artists and stylists, and decide whether you need an assistant or not. You will have to find a location and source full looks for your models to wear.
A successful fashion shoot needs a concept or story, and you also have to consider how much time you will spend during the shoot. Then you have to make sure that everyone understands your vision, and finally, you have to bring it all together on the day.
This guide will help you through setting up your first fashion shoot step-by-step so that you are equipped for success.
