Photo Shoots: Be A Professional (Or At Least Act Like One)

By this point in the book, you’ve learned quite a bit about the equipment, technique, and preparation that goes into making a shoot successful. Most likely, you’ll soon have a model knocking on your door who is ready and willing to be your personal muse.

This particular model may be experienced and calm or inexperienced and nervous. However, whatever mood she’s in when she arrives, it’s your job to put her in a state of mind where she can feel comfortable, safe, and confident.

The most important thing you can do when a model arrives for a shoot is to set a professional tone from the very beginning. That doesn’t mean you have to be unnecessarily serious or detached; it simply means that you should provide her with a professional environment.




No matter how inexperienced or nervous you may be, it’s important to let her know, through words and actions, that you respect her and that you respect the situation.

It might be helpful to look at the situation from the model’s point of view. Most likely, she won’t know you too well (if at all). She also knows that she’ll soon be naked and completely exposed in front of you. No matter how experienced she may be, she’s bound to feel a bit of nervousness.

It’s a big part of your job to find a way to soothe any anxieties she may have. You’ll take a big first step to accomplishing this task if you simply convey to her that you appreciate her time and that the main focus of the next few hours will be working with her to get the best possible pictures. In other words, act like a professional.

However, don’t misinterpret my use of the word “professional”. I don’t mean to suggest that you should pretend to be an “expert professional photographer” if you’re not one. In fact, if you’re new to this type of photography, it can take a great deal of pressure off you if you let your models know this (and the models will appreciate your honesty).

What I mean by “act like a professional” is that you go about your shoots in a way that lets your models know that the primary focus is on getting the best pictures possible.

Whether you’re a beginner or you have a great deal of experience, your models should get the sense that you’re focused on the job at hand.

Ideally, you’ll want to find a good balance between being friendly and being focused.
