Top Fashion Photographers
Top fashion photographers: The unattainable career?
Many people dream of becoming top fashion photographers. What makes fashion photography such an attractive and desirable career to so many people, is the "unattainability" of the lifestyle it represents. But is it that unattainable after all?
Becoming a top fashion photographer is not easy. Fashion photography is a highly competitive industry and many people are trying hard to reach the top of fashion photography. What makes fashion photography so desirable is the glitz and glamour that it represents. It's a known fact that most top fashion photographers get the chance to work with some of the true greats of the fashion industry. Top fashion photographers can get the opportunity to photograph not only the top models, but also some of the biggest names in business, such as Chanel, Prada, Louis Vuitton and Jean Paul Gaultier, to name a few.
The journey to the top of fashion photography is surely not an easy one. Most top fashion photographers have faced plenty of rejection in the duration of their careers as photographers, just like anyone else. And even if it might look like some people have it easier than others, it's actually a misconception, as everyone starts their dream from the same spot and work their way up from there. This is not to say that knowing the right people would not help you in making your dream a reality. And should you be so lucky to know some key people in the fashion industry, take advantage of that and don't be shy to ask for any assistance you might need in getting started as a professional fashion photographer.
As opposed to many other types of photography, fashion photography has a huge audience, it pays very well and it offers a glamorous international lifestyle. Top fashion photography might easily appear like one of the world's most sought-after professions, which it could be, and for that reason it has gained its unattainability-factor. But once you have your foot through the door of even just one fashion magazine, you can be sure that more work will follow and you will be working your way to become one of those top fashion photographers that everyone so idolizes.
