Any STYLISTS in the AREA?????
Hello,

Im new to this forum having only posted a few times since i first found the site two weeks ago. Im a freelance fashion photographer based in NYC. I shoot very often with models from top agencies like DNA, IMG, NEXT, VISION, WOMEN, ELITE, FORD etc... and I've shot for publications like Trace and most recently V magazine.

While im finding success, im still finding a bit of difficulty in finding stylists. Most i come across are very busy on a daily basis with jobs.

Are there, by any chance, any experienced stylists here in this forum? Or stylist assistants who have showroom access and a desire to style thier own shoots?

You can see some of my work at the link below. I look forward to chatting and maybe even putting some ideas into a great shoot!

Cheers

C+

Well ... by "the AREA" ... I assume you mean NY? At least your info shows you from there. I'm a stylist but on the wrong coast (Los Angeles), so I"m not going to be much help.

I'd like to mention one thing that photographers often ask for but may not really understand the logistics of it. And this might be the reason it's difficult to get stylists for tests:

So many shooters want us to have access to high end and trendy fashion lines ... you din't say this ... it's just a general obsevation. It's just not easy for tests ... almost impossible. The shooters that I test with have learned to trust me to bring things that look higher end than they are and know that the "brand" does not make a great image ... it's how everything is put together, the model, the makeup, the hair and most of all the shooter's ability to get some drama. If you are interested, here's my work. http://www.musecube.com/BetteT/


By my experience .... I can get samples to use from almost any fashion house/designer/boutique. But ... and this is a big "but" .... it really depends on where the photos will be used. If I was lucky enought to be pulling for an editorial to be featured a national fashion magazine ... I'd have them beat down the door to lend wardrobe and accesories. If it's a local rag ... I can get less expensive retail lines and small boutiques. If I'm pulling for a test, that won't be seen in any real publication ... then they are just not forthcoming ... plain and simple.

So if you are shooting for (pre-approved) for a magazine or a high end e-zine and I can get a letter from them, stating what the designer will get in return (credits, plus an ad, maybe) I'll be able to pull from lots of designers. The higher quality (or more well known) the publication the better the designer that I can get. Simple ... all I have to do is do the research on what I want and ask them.

Now ... famous, top of the heap stylists will have lots of friends in high places and will be able to borrow as a favor many times ... but these stylists don't have to test ... they get enough great editorial pages to more than fill their books.

So what do most of us do for tests? Pull from beginner designers and small shops in exchange for pictures ... if the photographer will allow some usage rights for the designer. We beg, borrow and almost steal from friends and family. We buy in thrift shops. And we buy from name brand lines at department stores and return the items afterwards ... a bit tricky to do a lot. The stores track it all and stop "serial returners".

For clients ...paying clients ... there's a budget for wardrobe and the client usually keeps whatever is used.

So, shooters, if you want high end fashion, give us something like guaranteed editorial credits or want smaller designer/boutiques give us usage rights for the designer to use and we will get out there and find some great stuff for you. For tests ... well you just have to find a really resourcefull, knowledgeable stylist that can create the looks you want with little to no money and don't insist on name brands.

Hello BetteT

I totally hear what you are saying and am very well aware of the issues you speak of. Simply put, pulling current high end for tests is alot more difficult than it is for commissioned editorial. Without a letter from a magazine, showrooms aren't gonna just hand anyone the designer's summer 2006 collection and say have fun.

I've no problem working with aspiring stylists who have a vision and sense for producing great fashion editorial. While every shoot may not be a commission, it doesn't stop a team from shooting a story and submitting it as spec editorial to magazines who regularly accept submissions. This is the best way for young photographers, stylists and muas to be published without being commissioned.

When the editorial comes in i personally prefer to work with a team i've worked with on prior shoots. I've come across stylists who have no interest in shooting for the sake of creating new work and are only interested in credits. On the other hand i've worked with teams who work regularly for high end publications from Vogue to Harpers Bazaar, but are more interested in shooting with a photographer who's work they appreciate, not so much for the credits, but for the sake of creating fresh new work, for the sake of creativity.
When the editorial comes around, that's the team i pull in for the assignment.

But yeah, for test it comes down to, as you said:

"find a really resourcefull, knowledgeable stylist that can create the looks you want with little to no money and don't insist on name brands."

Im game to meet and discuss ideas if anyone is the NYC area.
I realize that traveling all the way from the west coast is a bit much for a test, but if you are ever in the area feel free to drop me a line.

Need help styling a 60's shoot asap
Hi guys

I am a final year photographjy student, and wanted to pick your btrains about ideas for 2 outfits for a female model on a 60's theme. It needs to look quite styled in the sense that it will be shot on location in london, and I want her to stand out against the "real" people, kinda a living doll concept, if that makes sense.

So far thinking about black hot pants, black and white thin striped top, red waist belt and chunky red accessories, she will need tights not sure wether to go for red and black shoes of some sort or black and red shoes?

Any suggestions are welcome.

Thanks
Claire

Thanks, C.

Nice to hear from a shooter who understands this "catch 22" that stylists have ... sometimes it's no editorial work without the name brands and no name brands without the editorials. I'd love to meet you if I ever land in NY ... anything's possible.

For me, it's fun to collaborate and do creatives ... and it certainly can add something to the book when everyone does it right. I find that it sharpens my skills, so I do it a lot with shooters I like. But credits help you get work from paying clients ...so they are very important, too. Since I'm in L.A., I have to keep my book fairly commercial ... so some of my most creative.funky/weird stuff is just tucked away in my extra book ... just for the memory. Only my friends in this biz get to see those.

You can turn it into whatever you want (wearable or not) and the results will be photographed and exhibited across Canada and on the terminus1525.ca website. For more information, go to http://www.terminus1525.ca
The first exhibition will be in conjunction with the release of Worn Fashion Journal no.2. http://www.wornjournal.com
