There are so many things to keep in mind when organizing a big shoot like this. What are some things you really need to work through?
There are definitely a lot of restrictions, but we always make it work, and we’re really proud of being a dirty group of girls. Budgets are certainly one. Once we’ve nailed down our concepts, we go to our production team, and they can guide us as to whether our concepts can become reality – whether they can help us figure out how to do this within budget constraints or whether it’s really something we might put a spin on have to give up and go back to the drawing board a bit.
We definitely have those conversations in advance, so we can’t get too excited about doing a shoot on an island somewhere and then shooting it. We also like to think about what will appeal most to the talent. … Ultimately, we can run with our ideas and just get each other excited about certain concepts, but we want the talent to really feel comfortable. The more excited the talent is about everything – from what they’re wearing to the concept, the story, the photographer, the hair and makeup, everything – the more excited they are to show up on set and just have a great night. shooting experience.
We also have to work within the confines of many brand deals that may exist with the talent. This often entails many brand restrictions. … When someone has a contract with a major LVMH house, there are a lot of brand restrictions associated with that, which can often limit what we can bring in, who we can photograph, and even oftentimes our concepts can be tweaked a little bit because of that. Like I said, we try to gather all that knowledge and information in advance so that we don’t get too married to ideas. I’ve had my heart broken a few times when I was told we couldn’t do something I had really set my mind to. Like I said, we always figure it out.
