What is fashion photography and what gear would you recommend to aspiring fashion photographers?
“In a nutshell, fashion photography is a genre where fashion is the key element to the scene, to either sell the garment or to use fashion to communicate an artistic vision. Fashion is fast-paced with trends changing every season. Commercially, it’s a great industry to get into but difficult as it’s fiercely competitive from high fashion to retail fashion and social media. It is, however, not impossible if your head is in the game. I enjoy using fashion to create beauty and interest in my personal work and it allows you to work with all sorts of interesting subjects.
And when it comes to gear, it all starts with a good eye and any tool to capture your vision, even if it’s a smartphone! Good light and a great eye goes a VERY long way.
