The Fashionable Side of Photography – 4 day educational test shoot

style

4 day educational test shoot
by Houston commercial photographer – Nicki Evans Photography

Each year, I take a week trip to Dallas to brush up on my photography skills and learn a few new things too. I’ve taken a variety of classes with topics ranging from lighting and posing to marketing and pricing. This year, I decided to try my hand at something a little different, while having a bit of fun too, so I took a fashion photography class.

Over the range of four days, a team of amazing models, hair and makeup artists and stylists came together to make these test shoots possible. I photographed more models in four days than I have done in all of my photography experiences thus far. I really enjoyed getting to experience the “fashionable side of photography” and work with these models. It’s amazing the magic you can create in camera when you have such incredible talent on the other side.

Style on “Snow Day” – Test shoot with Houston creatives

Test shoot with Houston creatives
by Houston commercial photographer – Nicki Evans Photography

This didn’t technically happen on “snow day” in Houston, but it was quite frigid…and I like alliteration in headlines.

A couple weeks ago, on a cold and dreary Houston morning, I met up with a group of creatives/small business owners to network and hone our skills. I planned to photograph a high school senior during the allotted time of the styled shoot, since that’s an area of work I really enjoy and was hoping to promote in my retail photography. Unfortunately, the senior model booked for the day didn’t arrive in the time frame I was available.

But, lucky for me, there were a couple of lovely ladies on hand who took a few minutes to step in front of my lens for some test shots. One is a model who happens to work as another photographer’s assistant…Brittany. In her free time (is there any?), she is also an aspiring photographer herself. And the second, Karissa, is a travel blogger who promotes solo travel for the female variety through her blog, workshops, and vacations, of course. Check out She Flies Solo.

Bloggers in need of a fresh 2018 portrait? Seniors, Class of 2018, who haven’t booked those senior portraits? Here is a tiny sample of what NEP can offer you.
