What To Bring To A Photo Shoot
Everything except the kitchen sink and even that can sometimes make a great prop!
If you are shooting with me, you will have already provided a detail list of styles and colors at least 1 week prior to the shoot.
What you need to have in your modeling bag can vary from one shoot to the next. If you are working with a makeup artist or hair stylist, you generally won’t need to carry hair or makeup products, however it is a good plan to carry them just in case.
