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.

So, below mentioned photography types will come under a set that falls outside the set of fashion photography. Even though these are not exactly fashion photography, it borrows many elements from that to make a shoot successful.

Modelling Portfolio Photography / Portfolio shoot /Modelling Shoot

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.

As a result, photography style needs change according to it. It may or may not include fashion portrait photography. these types of shoots have a certain requirement as imposed by the modelling agency. 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.

Glamour Photography

Glamour Photography focuses more on the glamorous and seductive elements of pictures. pictures of models shot at different types of locations. A photographer tries to highlight the beauty as well as sexiness of the model in these pictures. It sometimes has implied nudity and these are very popular in men’s magazine like maxim etc. or calendars.

These types of photography are close to boudoir photography. But somehow a bit different – check out my boudoir page to know more about that. Nude photography is a bit different than but somehow still falls under this category.
