I will write my briefs, for my 10 created situation that I will photograph for my portfolio (book). I will work on this tomorrow and will finish it by mid-week. 7 years ago
I would love to be doing this! I am wanting a definite career change. I have been doing Administative work for years now and on the side I have always done other creative things. I have done furniture re-painting, completed a home study diploma programme in Interior Decorating, worked at a furniture store as a Design Consultant, currently running a small bead jewellery design company and now trying to teach myself fashion illustration. I absolutely love designing soft textile objects, decorating and re-arranging interiors. I have taken the photos for the website that I have built.
I would really love to change gears and work as a photo stylist. I would also like to be able to promote myself as someone that can design things like jewellery, handbags and clothes.
I have purchased an e-book over the weekend and it is very useful on the ins and outs of breaking in the business and do’s and dont’s. But it’s different if you can get a real-life story perspective.
Can you give me some advice in becoming a photo stylist and and is it a good idea to promote that as well as my designing talent? Or should those be kept separate. 7 years ago

I quess I just need to assit some photographers, and work my ass off to prove that I can do it! If anyone has any advice for me I would love it!!! 8 years ago
