ENTERING THE WORLD OF MODEL PHOTOGRAPHY The Blue Rooms Manchester


Starting a career as a fashion photographer may seem like a glamorous and fun way to make a living, but it’s also challenging. You have to be willing to pay your dues, work hard, and develop your talent. This overview of what it takes to become a model photographer can help you decide if this is the right path for you.


Your Daily Routine In addition to dressing the model in specific clothing, you may be required to adhere to a predetermined theme or to feature specific products in your photos. It can take an hour or more just to set up the backdrop for a single shot, so creating a whole photo spread can take the entire day. Be sure to plan out a routine ahead of time to allow for a smooth shoot.

Get Your Equipment Together

Before you walk onto set for your shoot, it's crucial to get your equipment together to ensure you are prepared. In addition to different types of cameras, you’ll need various lighting devices, shutters, backdrops, and props. If you’re hired by a fashion designer or a magazine as a staff photographer, they may provide this equipment, but most photographers start out as freelancers.

Job growth for fashion photographers reached 17% in 2014 and the demand continues to rise. Once you establish your career, you can expect to earn up to $50,000 annually.
