Breaking Down the Time Structure of a Modeling Photoshoot
Hair & Makeup: 1 - 2 hours
Wardrobe/Fitting/Changing: varies on how simple or difficult each outfit is to put on in between changes but you can expect this part of the process to take up between 10-15 minutes each time.
Waiting for the Photographer/Crew to Set Things Up: 20 minutes or longer for each change in location or outfit (remember my saying, "Hurry up and wait?" Well, it definitely comes into play when the photographer and/or the crew are setting up lights, doing test shoots, changing out equipment, etc.).
Actual Shoot Time: varies but anywhere from 10-15 minutes at a time. Here are some subtle changes you can make without having to do a totally different pose but still create mini poses at the same time: -
-Look straight at the camera and smile
--Keep your face looking straight at the camera but your eyes are looking somewhere else while smiling
--Keep your face looking straight at the camera but your eyes are looking in a different place and this time you're not smiling
