Planning a shoot around a client’s wardrobe

When a client turns up with a suitcase of clothes – or even just the outfit they’ve got on – how should what they wear affect the type of portrait you create? In this video, model Sophie arrives at my studio with an array of outfits that I’m seeing for the first time. I select a handful of them, talk through the shots I visualise based on the outfits, then go outdoors and into the studio to create those shots.

I share lighting tips, explain how I match location with clothing choices and share my images straight-out-of-the-camera (with camera settings) as well as the finished edits.
