My goal with this Site and Blog is to help you as a Photo Stylist, whether you are thinking about a career in styling or if you are styling now and feel you may want further help or if you are a Blogger or Photographer who feels that photo styling business knowledge would help in your career. You will find many Resource Guides in our Library. I'm starting our Blog with this post because I feel the key to being a well rounded stylist is education and you get that by attending conferences and events - both by gaining insight to different niches/avenues you can take and by meeting people! :)
Knowledge of a wide variety of topics and niches is great for your styling career. I am a Lifestyle Stylist (styling home/interiors, food, and wardrobe) At times, I have been called upon to do styling that is outside of my niche. So, it’s always great to have knowledge of other niches and disciplines, business and the industry as a whole. The following topics are great to have knowledge in as a Lifestyle Stylist:
• Business & Motivational
When I started my career as a Photo Stylist, there was really little information (and really not much events to attend, like there is now) on how to get started in the Industry in both business and styling techniques. Over the last several years, it really has changed. I find myself explaining less “So, what is a Photo Stylist?” More people are entering the field (such as Bloggers, Instagrammers, and Influencers working with brands and Photographers adding styling to their business) and more companies are not only hiring freelance, but are hiring full time staff stylists - which is great! If you are interested in attending or learning what conferences, trade shows and events you can attend, download our Guide below. (We listed conferences and events in the U.S.)
If you have an event you would like to add to our Guide, please contact us! :)
