Being a fashion photographer isn’t all fun and games, there is a lot of work that takes places behind the camera. Take a look at the video below to catch a glimpse of what it takes to function on the professional level as photographer, Karl Taylor, invites viewers into his world for a sneak peak of a typical day in his studio:
Taylor, who is well respected in the photography world for his art as well as his ability to teach photography to others, gives us some invaluable time in the studio allowing us to watch a master work. We are able to see just how precisely a photographer of his level must operate at. Keeping a clean, organized studio is part of that task. You can also see what equipment he prefers to work with, which include a gorgeous Hasselblad, a wide assortment of beauty dishes and umbrellas, along with a clean, white Plexiglass infinity wall to work with as a background.
Along with the help of a stylist and an assistant, Karl Taylor and the model work through an entire wardrobe of outfits, capturing the essence of each style in the photography.
You can see the long hours put into making a single shoot happen, but with end photos as gorgeous as the ones Taylor and his team were able to create here all the elbow grease has paid off. And, hopefully, you were able to pick up a few lighting techniques or ideas for posing models from the video!

The strongest storm ever recorded devastates the Philippines, killing 6,000. Pope Benedict XVI resigns, shocking even his closest advisers. A young Pakistani girl rises up against her oppressors and captivates the world. Like every year preceding it, 2013 was a year wrought with tragedy and triumph, a product of some of the brightest human accomplishments and heroic acts of all time, as well as some of the harshest demonstrations of nature’s fury and the darker side of humanity.
The following video features 80 of the most powerful images taken by photojournalists throughout 2013, which have been pieced together into a photo slideshow by The Atlantic’s Alan Taylor:
WARNING: PHOTOS MAY CONTAIN GRAPHIC OR OBJECTIONABLE CONTENT:
This body of work serves as a profound reminder of the potency and necessity of photojournalism.
“How could anyone with a shred of humanity reach for a camera rather than the hand of a suffering fellow human?” many ask, but the photojournalist’s answer thunders back in response: “Because someone has to make sure that we remember.”
And, hopefully, change.
