In this latest installation of Format’s InFrame documentary series, the camera turns to fashion and beauty photographer Solmaz Saberi who speaks from her experiences in getting started with photography to how she conducts a photoshoot to why she founded her own magazine. Directed by Bas Berkhout, you’ll want to check out this short video for your daily dose of inspiration.
Saberi is a Los Angeles-based photographer who after five years of shooting as a hobby, took a job at a brand new online magazine. She soon realized that what this magazine was doing she could do just as well herself and decided to start her own publication, Unleash’d Magazine, in 2010.
In this video we get an inside look at how Saberi runs a bigger budget photoshoot, which has her shooting until she finds one particular position that stands out and then working that pose for three to four hours until it’s perfected. There’s also a healthy dose of encouraging words that slip out from Saberi that is worth the watch alone.
If you enjoyed this episode of InFrame, I encourage you to also check out their debut video that featured Jessica Lehrman.
