Fashion photography is on a whole other level from other types of photography. It's extremely competitive and you have to have the ability to capture the product looking its best while being creative at the same time. Not as easy as it sounds, trust me.
The best way to go about it is to start finding what inspires you. You can't just flip through magazines and advertisements for your inspiration, you've got to find inspiration everywhere you go if you want to be truely successful at fashion photography. You can be far more successful if you go into a shoot knowing exactly what you want and what you need to do to make this happen, so prepare everything in advance, especially when working for a client!
Don't forget that though fashion photography is creative, and beautiful, it is also a commercial profession. As my fashion teacher, Nino Rakichevich, used to tell us, "clothes has to look good!"
All photographs used in this tutorial were shot and retouched by myself, including those that have the Vogue logo as they have been published on Vogue.it
