  • 2. We Help Aspiring Art Students! About Fashion Photography: Fashion Photography is a growing, creative field. Fashion photographers are needed to provide elegant images for print magazines, catalogues, advertisements, and more. To enter this competitive field, aspiring fashion photographers must have the necessary technical and creative skills. In addition to photography basics, fashion photographers must have a keen eye for detail, lighting, location, and editing techniques. Although it is not required, many fashion photographers choose to earn a degree in photography. Attending a degree program in photography not only equips aspiring photographers with technical skills, but also allows them to develop strong portfolios and can pave the way for networking opportunities through internships, career placement advising, and more. Visit Find Your Art School to see if a career in fashion photography is right for you!
  • 3. We Help Aspiring Art Students! Benefits of Higher Education: Not all fashion photographers choose to pursue a degree in photography. However, attending a photography degree program can increase your basic knowledge of photography techniques, while also providing students with chances to study with knowledgeable, successful photography mentors. Many schools offer degrees in photography. To find the right school for you, consider your options carefully. Choose a school that can provide you with the technical training you need, as well as courses specific to your fashion interests. Compare school tuition costs, financial aid opportunities, and explore the course catalogue for each prospective school to ensure you will receive the education you need to succeed as a freelance fashion photographer. In addition to completing basic photography courses, consider enrolling in business courses as well as marketing and advertising courses. Business courses can prepare students for life as a freelancer, while advertising and commercial photography courses can increase your practical skills within the fashion industry.

This can be a great way to establish professional relationships, while enhancing your portfolio. Connect with models, agencies, and other artists within the fashion industry through online forums and websites like Model Mayhem. Create and respond to casting calls to help build your portfolio and increase your professional networking opportunities.
  • 5. We Help Aspiring Art Students! Promote Your Skills: All artists understand the value of self-promotion.
