Ask the fashion photographer
This week we have a quick Q&A session with renowned award-winning fashion photographer Charney Magri. She’s collected a number of awards but many remember her for her most recent wins at the Dubai Lynx 2010, where she took home two gold and two bronze awards upon the conclusion of the prestigious event.
What constitutes winning fashion photography?
An image consists of many elements. In my industry [fashion and beauty] there are five main elements I work with: The client, stylist, make-up artist, hair stylist and of course the model.
For an image to be a ‘good’ photograph, all of these variables must work together and not compete against one another.
This is where choosing the right team to execute the brief is crucial as you must share the vision. In Dubai, I find there is always one variable that I continue to search for – good models.
So, please get in touch if you are, or if you know of any.
Watch out for upcoming sessions with local designers, editors and anyone who moves and shakes the fashion industry.
