How to get started in fashion photography in 6 simple steps
Many of the best photographs are those that tell a story and have a narrative. As photographers, we should be encouraging our viewers to delve deeper into our images. How you create narrative is one of the ways that you can establish your creative identity as a fashion photographer within the industry. Take time to consider how you do this by constantly reflecting on your work and thinking about the creative direction you are travelling in.

Planning and Teamwork
Indentify your hero image
At the end of the shoot immediately download your photographs from your camera to your computer to ensure they are backed up and can be reviewed clearly. Keep in mind, it is not always the last captured image that is necessarily the best one. Spend some time sieving through the shoot and pick out the strongest images. It may be good to revisit those you shortlisted with fresh eyes before making the final decision on your hero shot. The final stage would be to add any polishing touches in post production - follow our extensive post production courses for all levels!
