Succeed in the commercial world and become a stand-out fashion & lifestyle photographer. "If you are interested in pursuing fashion and lifestyle photography, this book, from this rising young star of the field, is a must." - Joe McNally Only a few years ago, fashion photography used to be a stuffy world for a tiny elite. Now an explosion in social media and lifestyle advertising has created opportunities for a whole new breed of professional photographer. Fashion and Lifestyle Photography is based on the talks Dixie Dixon, a Nikon Brand Ambassador, has given to crowds at major international trade shows. Expanding on the subject in the book, she reveals how to succeed in this exciting marketplace, covering key topics such as: · Professional case studies · Behind the scenes · Lighting diagrams & gear · How to build your career From finding your vision, to building your dream team, this book will provide you with the essential gear and know-how to capture the looks of the media world that leap off the page or screen. "Dixie Dixon is a truly wonderful, vibrant young talent in the field of fashion and lifestyle photography. In this book, she takes you on a lively, complete tour of not only how to make compelling, beautiful photographs, but also how to grow a business, develop a signature look, make your own breaks, gather clients and keep them, use social media well, and assemble a great support team. And that's the short list. This book is full of gems about the seemingly small details that are essential to success." - Joe McNally

While developing the concept for his latest book, "From the Heart," photographer Chris Craymer was inspired by the idea of not only photographing his subjects, but also interviewing them, to create holistic portraits. Known internationally for his fashion and lifestyle photography, Craymer had never before played the role of interviewer. The ritual and vulnerability of having one's portrait taken forges a trust between photographer and subject, and Craymer found that it was as if a door had been opened during the photography sessions, as the words in the interviews flowed "from the heart." The resulting portraits are unique and intimate: the reader senses Craymer's connection with each of his subjects.

Effective commercial portraiture is heavily reliant on clean, crisp lighting looks that emphasize color, contrast, contours, and texture to allow viewers of magazines, newspapers, television, and movies to view a product or model/celebrity in a precise and predetermined way that suits the overall marketing campaign and leaves viewers with a specific, conscripted feeling about the product /person being shown. Crafting this type of polished lighting requires absolute proficiency with the tools of the trade, from flash, to beauty lights, to softboxes, to gobos and gels. It also requires thinking outside the box to create lighting with a “hook”—a certain quality that binds the look to the brand identity and can be carried out repeatedly across several advertising campaigns. Whether you are producing album cover art, lingerie shoots for an intimates catalog, or production stills for television shows or movies, Jennifer Emery will give you the technical and creative skill set you need to thrive artistically, work efficiently with models and set designers, and win repeat clients. Beginning with essential strategies for finding and casting talent, paying/trading with that talent, and creating an open dialogue throughout the directorial stages, Jennifer builds a solid foundation from which the artistic concept can spring forth. In the following chapters, she presents text and images that will instruct readers on creating numerous looks/projects, including: (1) Beauty lighting for beauty/cosmetics ads (2) High-Key Lighting for a magazine cover shoot, (3) Lighting groups for a movie/TV poster, (4) Sculpting light for boudoir/lingerie/swimsuit/nude photograph, (5) Working with speedlights/flash for editorial fashion and lifestyle shoots, and (6) Lighting exterior locations for high fashion and fashion editorial work. Armed with these skills, photographers will be able to approach any commercial lighting job with a repertoire of skills, an ability to overcome challenges, and the confidence needed to nail the shot every time.

There is an increasing trend within both the study of visual culture and fashion itself to restore fashion to an aesthetic role - one that moves beyond its commercial success as a global industry and places fashion within a nexus of art, the body, and femininity. This emphasis aims to separate fashion from mere clothing, and illustrate its cultural power as an integral aspect of modern life. In this innovative new book, Alison Bancroft re-examines significant moments in twentieth-century fashion history through the focal lens of psychoanalytic theory. Her discussion centres on studies of fashion photography, haute couture, queer dressing, and fashion/art in an attempt to shed new light on these key issues. According to Bancroft, problems of subjectivity are played out through fashion, in the public arena, and not just in the dark, unknowable unconscious mind. The question of what can be said, and what can only be experienced, and how these two issues may be reconciled, become questions that fashion addresses on an almost daily basis. Psychoanalysis has been profoundly influential in the arts, thanks to its capacity to add layers of meaning to things that, without it, would remain obtuse and intractable. It has proved crucial to the development of film studies, art theory and literary criticism. What it has not yet been brought into dialogue with in great depth is fashion. By interpreting fashion within a psychoanalytic frame, Bancroft illustrates how fashion articulates some of the essential, and sometimes frightening, truths about the body, femininity and the self.

Today it is part of 21st-century life, seen everywhere from billboards to shop windows, to the style magazines that dominate the newsagent's shelves. This exposure has encouraged photographers and stylists to strive to create images that are more striking than the last, to stun a demanding public with an increasingly sophisticated palette. Creative technology is opening up vast new territories in fashion photography by introducing a new level of digital image manipulation. Pixel Surgeons is about that emerging talent.
