I put a status on the social networking site called Facebook asking if anyone would be interested in being models for my music magazine for the photography shoot and I got many replies which iwas pleased with. I decided on these four people tobe my models as I believe they would suit the genre of the magazine best. They all have a very similar appearance and fit in with the stereotype basedaround the genre of the magazine. I e-mailed them asking if they would be available for the photography shoot.

I needed to plan my location for my shoot of images to use for my front cover, contents page and double page spread.I considered various locations such as a music room Possible props for photo shoot for doublewith props such as headphones, guitar, microphone page spread etc. and I also considered using a photography studio.I decided to take my photos for my front cover in a photography studio as I believe this would create the correct affect on the photo with strong lighting to highlight the models facial expressionand body language. I also chose this as magazines I researched into such as “Kerrang!” And “Rocksound” both use photography studios fortheir front cover image as it looks professional and has a simple background which can bemanipulated easily and allows text to be read easy and overall looks better on the front cover.

I started off by producing a calendar to plan when and what to do on different days to getmyself organised and so I was focussed on getting the work finished for the deadline. It alsohelped me plan to do in each lesson I had so I could use my time wisely. I then moved on to organising my models where I contacted four friends who I thought would be great for thegenre of the magazine through Facebook and e-mail. As soon as I knew they were available I went ahead to book the photography studio for my first shoot to make sure I could get a good slot which all my models were available for. Once it was booked I started looking into the costume side of the shoot, I did this by looking through both Kerrang! And Rocksound magazines which gave me plenty of ideas of different items of clothing the models could wear and which I could get a hold of easily. Luckily the models all had the clothing I had in mind as they all listen to the genre of music my magazine is – rock/metal/hardcore so they were perfect for the job and all had the right image to them. I did the same for my secondphotography shoot – my model for that one also all had the correct clothing as well as bodymodification; stretchers and tattoos which is something heavily stereotyped with the genre of music in modern times so he was a perfect model for my magazine. For both shoots I used my Pentax DSLR camera which I was very familiar and comftable with using so I was confident when taking my images. Both shoots went very successfully which I was pleasedwith and I believe I had good strong images which would work well for my magazine. I then moved on to looking at flat plans for Kerrang! and then produced my own after looking through many Kerrang! magazines giving me a good idea and influenced my idea of the layout and structure of a music magazine with a similar genre.
