Fashion Photographer

Fashion Photographer

You have the camera, the model, the costume… But would all of this add up to a great fashion photograph? Not without vision, says Tarun Khiwal, who believes that there is no set formula to climb the ladder of success in this field. One should spend years in experimenting first, and then create his/her own sensibility. Though most budding fashion photographers make good money, it is hard work and the number of years spent in this field that establishes you in the top bracket.

What do they do?

Senior fashion photographers with a good track record and those who have consistently produced great work shoot big campaigns for brands, both domestic and international. 

Their work also involves a lot of travelling given the nature of the work. They also shoot a lot of portrait-based campaigns and beauty campaigns. For this, one needs to have an understanding and develop a keen sensibility of the subject. Budding fashion photographers shoot a lot with younger fashion designers.

During the initial part of his career, a fashion photographer gets to work a lot on look books and catalogues. The better ones end up shooting campaigns for designers, which help a great deal in portfolio building. The best way to get ahead is to assist a senior photographer for some time.
