Fashion Photographers


Fashion photographers work in the fashion industry and focus their skills specifically on styles of clothing and personal image. They take and produce pictures of people, places, and objects by using a variety of cameras, photographic equipment, computers, and image editing software. The photographs are used to advertise new fashions, promote models, and popularize certain designers in both print and electric formats. Approximately 50,070 photographers are employed in the United States; only a small percentage of these professionals specialize in fashion photography.
