Every year I do a themed spring photoshoot exclusively for my Street Team. This year’s theme was all about the 1970’s! Bring on the bell bottoms, crochet tops and amazing large sunglasses.
Pulling off a theme stylized photoshoot is a LOT of work, especially if you have a large group. Here are some of my tips for pulling off a creative stylized photoshoot.
- Clear concept & vision: Create a mood board on Pinterest
- Details: Break down the look you want for your models (hair/makeup, shoes, bottoms, tops, accessories).
- Props: Secure your props well beforehand and have a backup if something doesn’t go as plan.
- Vendors: Stylized photoshoots are a great opportunity to work with other businesses. Make sure you approach vendors you want to work with on how you can help them. Also make sure the agreement of what each party will receive is clear.
- Clear communication: I recommend an app like GroupMe to communicate if you have multiple models. Make sure EVERYONE is on the same page (vendors, hair & makeup artists, models, assistants, videography, etc..). You are the art director in all this.
- Help: I highly recommend bringing someone along that can take care of the little things, whether it’s getting behind the scenes content or picking/return props to vendors, holding your reflector etc…
- Timeline: Type up a timeline that you can send to everyone involved this will help things run smoothly the day of the photoshoot.
- Thank You’s: Make sure you are of course tagging everyone involved in your marketing. I also suggest going above and beyond for your vendors and sending a handwritten thank you note or gift card.
