Writing Fashion-Beauty Photo Shoot Themes

Chucky's in Love for WestEast Magazine © Benjamin Kanarek


Here is what I generally try to do before doing a shoot for a magazine. I will do a brain storming session and start to compile idea’s for the shoot. Once the idea’s are honed down, I will choose perhaps two or three of them and share them with the Fashion Editor of the shoot and get her/his feedback and go from there.

This is an actual pre-production study I did.

  2. To the Hunt
