Photo Shoot

A photo shoot is generally used in the fashion or glamour industry, whereby a model poses for a photographer at a studio where multiple photos are taken to find the best ones for the required brief. The "model" is not always a person, however; for instance, advertising in print often requires photographic depiction of advertised goods, and food can be the subject of magazine articles (often in very elaborate presentations).

A few examples are:

  • Modelling for a newspaper or magazine article, as well as billboards
  • Advertising a company's product, where the product is generally used by the model
  • Aviation: Air-to-air photo shoots or photography of an aircraft, with another acting as a photo- or camera-ship
  • Modelling a new range of fashion designs for a store or designer

Famous quotes containing the words photo and/or shoot:

    A photo of someone else’s childhood,
    a garden in another country—world
    he had no part in and has no power to imagine:
    yet the old man who has failed his memory
    keens over the picture— ‘Them happy days—
    gone—gone for ever!’
    Denise Levertov (b. 1923)

    ...Negroes must concern themselves with every single means of struggle: legal, illegal, passive, active, violent and non- violent.... They must harass, debate, petition, boycott, sing hymns, pray on steps—and shoot from their windows when the racists come cruising through their communities.... The acceptance of our condition is the only form of extremism which discredits us before our children [ellipses in source].
    Lorraine Hansberry (1930–1965)
