The Process of Visualization

Robert starts his process by finding out as much as he can about the fashion line he is going to photograph.

Who are the people who are going to wear the clothing. What do they respond to? What is their world experience? Different stories are good for different kinds of people so this is an important first step.

After this has been cleared Robert goes to develop a story set in a location with a specific world experience. Fashion photography is, in his eyes, not just to picture fashion but the feeling you get when you wear this fashion and how it enriches the world of the wearer.
