Hair Photography. Sometimes creativity conspires around me and I don’t get the memo until much later. Such is the case now, as it seems I’ve been shooting a lot of hair lately. I did a project with LUSH Cosmetics and the Pop Up Art Project, and a few other shoots as well, commercial and private; after I shipped all the work to it’s permanent homes and had a look-see afterwards, I realized I had the start of a satisfying project. I look forward to shooting more, more, more of this.
Here is a portfolio of hair Photography on all kinds of men and women shot with flash and available light on location in NYC for editorial assignments.
IS THERE SUCH A THING AS HAIR PHOTOGRAPHY?
You bet there is. And you’d be surprised at how much work there is in this niche category. Salons and stylists shoot collections each year for their cut and color collections, and there is always plenty of hair photography present in editorial and advertising as well.
One would think that hair could fall into the same category as beauty photography. However, it is really a whole other thing. Since you’re not focusing on skin, there are lot of nuances to beautifying hair. In short, it is quite different from photographing people or clothes.
