Model Photography FAQs

A classic and very popular style of fashion photography, this approach involves using models to showcase your range of clothing. It offers a myriad of benefits to your brand that you may be aware of, but also some that you hadn’t thought about before. Model photography can be much more cost effective than you think and the return on investment is worthwhile.

The first benefit is the ability to tell almost any story that you want and differentiate your images form the uniformity of standard e-commerce shots. Maybe you want to have models playing a sport whilst wearing your latest range of activewear, or drinking your brand’s drinks in an exotic location? You’re only limited by your imagination (and budget) which makes for some exciting results.

The next benefit is a simple one – it allows prospective customers to visualize what your products will look like when worn, as opposed to simply lying flat on a surface or on a mannequin. Research has shown that using people to show off a garment increases conversion rates, and this is linked to humans being visual by nature.

The final benefit is the ability to use model photography to connect with your target customer. If you do the research, understand your target audience and design fashion shoots using appropriate models then you build a relationship and connection not found with other forms of photography.

With all forms of clothing photography, you want to find that balance between using models to create exciting, engaging product photographs and not distracting the potential customer from the product you wish to sell. The way to do this is to work with an expert photography studio who will be able to explore your ideas, brand values and business goals and design a photoshoot that delivers results.

The short answer is yes, absolutely! Almost all brands that require photography go for some kind of combination of styles. This may be a mixture of model and mannequin photography, or model and flat lay photography or all three. The reason that combining styles has become so popular is that there is simply not a one size fits all approach that works.

It is likely you will need at least flat lay or ghost mannequin image of an item, as well as more creative product photographs, and will likely want to show off a range of products on the same page in a uniform way, and this requires a degree of consistency stylistically across your images.

Moving away from the more formulaic photography requirements of e-commerce stores, your business will likely wish to use creative or lifestyle shots on your website as well as across social media platforms. This is where model photography can be vital because of the freedom it offers. Building up brand awareness, brand connection with customers and communicating emotion is key to successful marketing and successfully converting customers, so model photography should be on your list.

As you can see above, each style has its own benefits. By combining both model and ghost mannequin photography you can build a portfolio of shots that targets the right type of customer on every platform and maximize your sales
