  2. 2. How to Break into Fashion Model Photography and Be Successful Ever look at the glamorous photographs in your favorite fashion magazines and wonder who is behind the cameras? While the photographer is often overlooked in discussions about the fashion world, fashion model photography is an exciting and challenging career that is rewarding in many ways.
  3. 3. What to Expect from a Fashion Model Photography Career If working with beautiful models, traveling to exotic locations, and meeting high profile designers excites you, how about the thought of hours on end cramped up in a studio or editing room? Along with the glitz and glamour of a career in fashion model photography come some less than pleasant tasks. Fashion model photographers often work for at least 60 hours per week and have little personal time. You have to really love the job to not feel burnt out.

It cannot be stressed enough how important a role people relations play in this field. You have to be sensitive of the models’ moods in order to have a successful shoot. You also have to build good professional relationships in order to build your career.
  5. 5. Model Photography The only way you are going to get any respect in fashion model photography is by taking interesting, edgy photographs. If you are churning out the same old, same old, finding work will be difficult. Creativity and adventurousness are essential if you are interested in a career in fashion model photography. If you can’t come up with anything avant-garde, you may want to consider a different field such as nature photography.
  6. 6. Getting Your Foot in the Door In order to get started in the fashion model photography world, you are going to need some experience. Start by finding amateur models that need to build their portfolios. Look on model websites to find models who are willing to work TFP (time for prints) which means that after the shoot you will give them copies of prints that they can use to build their portfolios and in turn you can build your own.
  7. 7. Contacting Modeling Agencies Also try contacting modeling agencies and getting friendly with the booking agents. The booking agents can help you arrange portfolio shoots, which modeling agencies need in order to market their models to clients.
