Hi guys! So today we are doing a photoshoot because we are releasing two new pieces on our website and we wanted to bring you along, show you behind the scenes of what it’s like to run a photoshoot and give you a few tips and tricks.
Today I’m going to be talking specifically about shooting your products on models for your website.
Here’s what you’ll need:
A MAKEUP ARTIST
1. A STUDIO
Lighting is one of the trickiest parts of photography. Save yourself the trouble and invest in renting a professional studio. They will have everything you need - the right lighting, backdrop, etc. all there for you so your photos can look as good as possible. Cutting corners often results in reshoots or hours of editing after the fact.
2. A PHOTOGRAPHER
Next, is your photographer. How do you find the right one? As there are so many different styles of photography, make sure you find someone that is experienced in fashion studio shoots. We work with Damea Dorsey, who makes studio shoots super fast (and fun!) because he knows exactly what he’s doing.
Now you’re going to need models. If you are low on budget, you can ask friends - like we did (thanks Walter and Raf!)
We’re so lucky to have friends willing to help us out. Just make sure that you hook them up with some free gear or take them for a nice dinner afterwards!
Make sure you tell your models to bring their own shoes, accessories or whatever else you’ll need (that you don’t produce yourself!). And have them bring a few different styles so that you have options!
4. A MAKEUP ARTIST
And of course, don’t forget a makeup artist. Especially, if you are shooting women, you’ll need someone there to handle hair and makeup and tie the looks together with the outfits.
Now, here’s a few of my best tips:
