Fashion & Celebrity Photographer
Fashion and celebrity photography is all about glamorous lifestyle, high pay-checks and a large audience. Fashion and celebrity photographers are among the world's most sought-after professionals. This type of photography has always been in high demand. Fashion photography is typically conducted for fashion magazines such as Elle, Vanity Fair or Vogue.
However, it can often be difficult for a fashion photographer to make it into this industry. The way the photographer directs his models should be confident and self-assured. Lack of direction will lead to a poor performance from your model. Choosing the right location is crucial for the success of your shooting. Using a studio may be an ideal option because this way the photographer will easily be able to stabilize conditions and control lightning. Beginners may want to start by using natural lightning as it is free and easy to control. Fashion photographers often need a team that includes a hair and makeup stylist and an assistant to clear the scene, position reflectors etc.
Nowadays technology has made capturing celebrity pictures more rewarding and feasible than ever before. A large number of photographs specialize in celebrity photography. The three types of celebrity photography used by newspapers and magazines today include: celebrity portraiture, paparazzi photography and event photography. If you love the glamor and glitz Hollywood has to offer then you may want to consider working as a fashion and celebrity photographer.
Confidence in your photography will get you a long way. Make sure you always carry a business card and a portfolio book!
