Type of Photography Genres Focusing on Models

There are few photography styles where the focus is more on the model than the product. We have to remember, fashion is all about selling clothes, accessories etc. But fashion portrait photography has some part where models are supposed to steal the limelight.

As a modelling portfolio photographer, I do my shoots in such a way so to enhance the look of the model. Making sure that the clothing, accessory and makeup to not overpower the model. As in this type, we are not selling the product, but we are selling the model.

I avoid doing too many photo-shoots at a time just to make sure that the modelling agencies are getting the best. Get in touch to check my availability.
