Fashion vs Glamour

Hey Guys,

how’ve you been? After some conversations with some models or aspiring models it seemed that there is a bit of a fog on what’s goes for Fashion and what goes for Glamour photography.

So let’s clarify that a little with 2 quotes from Wikipedia:

Glamour photography is a genre of photography in which the subjects, usually female, are portrayed in erotic or exciting ways ranging from fully clothed to nude but in ways that either may conceal or may otherwise not especially draw attention to the subjects’ breasts and buttocks.(implied nude)

Fashion photography is a genre of photography devoted to displaying clothing and other fashion items. Fashion photography is most often conducted for advertisements or fashion magazines such as Vogue, Vanity Fair, or Elle. Over time, fashion photography has developed its own aesthetic in which the clothes and fashions are enhanced by the presence of exotic locations or accessories.

Now let’s hope that this will get you where you want to be 😉

Good luck..
