For some reason, I’ve heard that posing men for fashion photography is more challenging than women. Honestly though, I find it a little easier. Especially with guides like Men’s Portrait Fashion Photography. Dani Diamond also has great examples of good posing. Personally, I kind of wing it. Not the best tactic for portrait photography or fashion photography, but I’m still learning.

Shooting Fashion Photography

For me, it was really important to create a mood board to figure out what I’m looking for. The best thing to do for this is figure out where you’re taking the fashion photography, then you’ll have a better idea of the vibes that will present well in your images. When you have a good setting, it’s nice to bring props like an instrument or some kind of accessory to have successful posing with.
