What does a Fashion Photographer do?

One of the most glamorous and fun jobs in the industry. Fashion photographers get to travel the world taking pictures of beautiful people in amazing fashion. Fashion photographers can work for a magazine, newspaper or as freelancers. Apart from the job that never gets boring fashion photographers often get to meet and mingle with glitterati and are invited to the best social events and parties.

This course has been developed by acclaimed Swiss Fashion photographer Tom Bauer who continues to work for top designers and labels when he is not assisting his fortunate students of SDC.

Student References

At style design college we have very good exposure to fashion photography As the college offers Fashion design as a course we are able to work hand in hand with the fashion students in assisting them with photography. We have also been invited to take pictures at the fashion show events that the college organises. We have had huge exposure to Fashion photography.
Lisa Marie Isaacs
This genre in photography is full of expression and lighting techniques. The biggest demand on the photographer is getting the ‘best’ out of their models either to show how beautiful or handsome or muscular they are or if its for clothing- make sure we make the garment pop and stand out as this is what is being marketed. With this Style Design course, our practical lessons are packed with learning how to pose the models,  taught different lighting techniques (backlight, side light etc) using the studio lights as well as the power pack in studio and on location.
