I wish I was a Fashion Photographer

It's time for another round of I wish I was {insert cool job}. During my corporate (and job hunt on the side) days I like to dream about fun and creative jobs. Like...a fashion photographer. When I'm driving or wandering around I tend to see spots and think, "Oh! That would be a neat place for a fashion photo shoot!" It's like my mind thinks in photographs. Actually it's kind of fun and entertaining.

I would love to photograph places and scenes like fashion photographer Robert Diadual. His meticulous attention to detail brings photographs to life with unexpected places and intriguing story lines. Not to mention the added bonus of appealing clothes and models. So, yeah photographing beautiful places, clothes and people sounds pretty darn good!

hey, honey! why don't you turn that 'i wish i was a...' into an 'i am a ..." if you're on the job hunt, what better time? you're ubertalented and there's no doubt in my mind that you could do any of the wonderful things you post about here, just as well, if not better :)

"my mind thinks in photographs"
thank you. for years, i have been trying to describe to people, random or family, how my brain works when they ask about my photography. this is a nice and understandable and to the point way of putting it. so i will give credit where credit is due the next time i use this line.

That is really neat the way you describe it. Mind thinking in photographs. I do that all the time. You're always on the lookout for a beautiful interpretation.

He either has a fabulous location scout or he drives around in search of the perfect backdrop a lot.

Great shots!

These photos are beautiful, and I'd happily be the fashionable lady eating at the diner! Being a fashion photographer does sound amazing, and I am positive with your creativity that you would be great!

I adore that last photograph! Her little bustier is too sexy! I love the idea of day dreaming about the perfect job!

i love the diner pic!

Joyce said...

Bonbon Oiseau said...

ooh yeah! but my husband did it for me a few times and it's good work but hard work--very hard...and long days...and little relaxing...sorry--did i just rain on your parade?

fly tie said...

i do that too...pass by places and think, "that would be a good spot for some kind of photo shoot."

i'm gonna agree with others and say do it!! :-D

Michelle said...

You are so funny. I think that too, except I always, and I mean ALWAYS wish I had a camera (and a model) when I see a toilet or a fridge or a stove or a chair or whatever on the curb (Atlatans are always remodeling) I would dress up my model (husband) in a bathrobe with a cigarette hanging out of his mouth (pink bathrobe, too small) and make it like he is trying to fry an egg on the stove in the lawn...priceless. it would be a hysterical book...

Girl Japan said...

WOW.. So Verner Panton.. hehe "wink"! Maybe you can take short jabs at it while still doing the corporate ring? You have an eye for detail courtesy of your blog..

A Day That Is Dessert said...

I love the shot in the red booth! If you think you'd love photography why not try it on the side and see?

Roberta Jane said...

You and me both!

Fifi Flowers said...

I would ADORE being a fashion photographer! My senior project in college was a fashion magazine layout. I had 3 models and we shot film in downtown L.A., and old town Pasadena... it was sooooo much FUN! All in black and white! I should post that spread on my site someday... thanks for giving me ideas... I need all the help I can get!
ENJOY!

These are very nice shots. You know its funny you should say that you think in photographs cause when I was in the middle of my final 2nd year photography project I started dreaming in still images! Weird..
