Fashion Photography that is Unique

men's fashion photographer

Years back one of the designers I worked with told me his marketing company told him he needed to be using me rather than the other photographers that he had worked with because of the unique perspective I brought to the work.

Part of that reason was because I was then based in Colorado and the locations provided a welcome relief from the NYC or beach backgrounds that had dominated their advertising images for so long.  But now that I am based in Los Angeles I still bring a very unique perspective to an image, no matter how many times the location has appeared in the work

In the photo above, we dragged the crew up to a little silver mining town in the Colorado Rocky Mountains.  The old train relic with the mountain stream in the foreground, the quaint mountain setting and the unique pose of the model… as if he was not posing at all… created a highly unique fashion image.

We had bad light that day. It was overcast and there was little definition in the light.  I overcame this by setting up strobes to the models left and balancing them with the existing light to make it appear there was some direction in the light across the models face.

Contact us to discuss how we can bring a unique perspective to your next advertising photo shoot.

    I completely saw what you described with the model’s unique pose. The model really reflects a natural in-life pose. The backdrop of the stream is really cool along with train is what pulls me into this fashion shot. I love this style of shooting for fashion. I’m not trained in photography, but I can appreciate the complexity of how to get a great shot. Mark, your instincts are so rewarding to all of us!
