Model photography can be used in several ways. Often is it part of a magazine layout, done at the request of an editor or writer. Other times it is commercial or advertising work.

Editorial Model Photography

Typically if you are interested in model photography for professional use, you will be able to find a photographer who has specific relevant experience. Though model photography has some elements in common with portrait photography, there are conventions for editorial fashion layouts, for example, that differ from portraiture. An experienced photographer will be aware of these conventions, and also have a creative eye which will yield dramatic and effective photos.

Model photography for advertising is similar to editorial photography. The idea is to get striking and high-impact photographs which will showcase a product or depict people using it with satisfaction. From design elements to technical elements, the right photographer will enhance your ideas and bring them to dramatic fruition.

Model photographers should also be flexible in terms of working with models you choose or having connections with models they can bring in to a project. If you are looking for a model photographer for commercial or editorial use, the Internet is a great place to start looking.
