HOW FASHION PHOTOGRAPHY ALTERED THE WORLD OF FASHION

Fashion photography is believed to have made its debut in the 19th century as a result of various fashion magazines such as Harper’s Bazaar,  Vogue, and La Mode Practique choosing to use actual photographs instead of simple prints and drawings in their magazines. The birth of fashion photography completely changed the world of fashion forever, as it gave an entirely new way to showcase clothes and other pieces. Fashion photography allowed pieces to actually come to life in imagery. Moreover, fashion photography took the world of fashion imagery from being two-dimensional to three-dimensional, adding a whole new realm of possibility to reading fashion magazines. 

The world of fashion photography is always evolving and taking different forms, and we love that about it. Our team is on the pulse when it comes to creating iconic fashion photography imagery. Our team’s unique expertise allows us to specialize in many types of imagery, including fashion editorial photography, photography for magazines, and even fashion photography to showcase your stunning designs and creations. We are passionate about what we do. We have captured fashion photography for many  gifted local designers in Houston, gorgeous boutiques, in addition to regional magazines. 

With over a decade of  experience in Fine Art photography combined with our niche background in dance photography, we are proud to capture images of all types that possess a truly unmatched sense of movement that adds depth and dimension to fashion photography. Our photography studio is equipped with everything we need to capture the perfect images that match your vision.

Fashion photography is about much more than simply snapping photos of clothes and striking models. Fashion photography (when successful) should actually bring the fashion pieces to life. Our strong background in utilizing motion in our imagery makes us a no-brainer, as we know how to best capture both the movement of the model, as well as the motions of the fabric. We believe incorporating movement is one of the best tools available in fashion photography.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

After many years of working in fashion photography, we tend to receive lots of questions related to our work, as well as about the world of fashion photography in general. We always try to give as much information as possible to ease any nerves, as well as to provide more information for any curious minds about the process. One of the most frequently asked questions we get asked is:

Is it really worth it to hire a professional photographer?

Look, we get it. It can totally be a bit nerve-wracking to bring in a professional in any situation. However, it truly is one of the most worthwhile investments you could make. By hiring a professional photographer to capture your fashion photography, you are ensuring you will get the exact results you have in mind, which should only be images of top quality.

GETTING PREPARED FOR YOUR FASHION PHOTOGRAPHY SESSION

Brainstorm. When we have our consultation call, if you have a vision for what you’re looking for, communicating it to us through samples and specific details will help.

We can also create a concept for you, colors and all. So just brainstorm on your specific tastes and interests, and colors you prefer with your skin tone and more. We will create a concept that complements you, your brand, and the pieces you want to highlight.

HAIR AND MAKEUP

If your Session includes hair and makeup, then find as many examples of what you’re looking for as possible. There are a surprising amount of different kinds of smokey eye looks than you’d think. Find the one that suits you best, that makes you feel the most excited and confident.

 

BACKDROP COLOR

Can’t decide on a backdrop color? Go to Pinterest, google images, or Instagram and start collecting images that you want to replicate. We can take the lighting, the makeup, the hair, the colors, from all of the photos that you bring us, and we can put them together in a way that captures your unique vision.

 

WARDROBE

Are there any pieces that you want to be photographed in? Any colors that you think go with any of the colors you’ve been playing with? If so, bring them! We encourage our clients to bring as much wardrobe as possible so that we have a large variety to work with.
