5 Reasons to Participate in a Styled Shoot-Out!




If you have ever thought about participating in a styled shoot, I HIGHLY recommend it. It's how I built my wedding portfolio. It's how I met amazing industry professionals (photographers, planners, makeup artists, other vendors). It's how I learned more about posing, and styling, and angles, and lenses. Workshops can cost $100s of dollars, but styled shoots are much less expensive--and although there is no formal instruction, you are pretty much guaranteed to learn something.
AND you get great photographs.
Win. Win.




Here are my top 5 reasons for participating in a styled shoot!


1. Getting to know other photographers--Every styled shoot I have attended and/or planned has been a great experience for everyone involved! Styled shoots are a great opportunity to make friendships and have a good time for learning tips and tricks for posing, detail shots, and technical skills while shooting a mock wedding.

2. Portfolio building.  Setting up a styled shoot is not easy or free--your small fee gets you  designer dresses, beautiful models, gorgeous florals and desserts all for use in your social media and website portfolios. Groups are usually small so everyone has ample opportunity to photograph the details while still making friendships in an intimate setting!







3. SEO and exposure-- When you participate in these shoots, you Tag your vendors, vendors tag you, you link back to each other on your websites and social media.  You build relationships, get referrals.  It's a win, win with little cost to everyone!





4. Experience.  What better way to build your portfolio and make mistakes or take risks than in a styled-shoot experience?  You are bound to learn something whether you are new or experienced!
