How to Plan a Fashion Photoshoot

SFD045: How to Plan a Fashion Photoshoot (step by step)

There are a lot of variables to consider to plan a fashion photoshoot. And in this interview, fashion photographer Kristen Walther and I cover all of them. From casting models to getting the right hair and makeup, and finding a perfect location to planning for a smooth day, we go through the entire photoshoot process, step by step.

You’ll love Kristen’s light-hearted nature and will get a good laugh from her photoshoot horror stories (think braces!).

In our interview, we discuss:

  • The importance of casting models in real life
  • The one and only place you can cut corners if you’re on a tight budget
  • How to coordinate and plan for a successful shoot
  • Simple things you can do to get the most shots done in a day
  • The difference between a look book and campaign shoot, and what to expect from each
  • Why she cringes at the phrase “we’ll just Photoshop it”
  • Why getting an experienced model can make or break your shoot
  • When you need to get a permit (and how much you should budget)
