Introduce Yourself To The Group!

Welcome to the Official Fstoppers Fashion Photography group. Introduce yourself!

Let me get the ball rolling. My name is Peter House. I am a Toronto based commercial fashion photographer. I mostly work on the product and catalog side of things, but I also shoot a fair bit of editorial. I also run one of the more popular rental studios in the Toronto area; a 1500 square foot creative space that has seen some really cool personalities walk through its door. Last but not least, I am also a senior writer here at Fstoppers, and I hope you all enjoy my articles!

I don't know what to say about myself, I can say my style is I try to capture authentic realistic non-composited fashion images, with a taste of emotion, so its a different edge like most others fashion photogs using composites and no emotion from the subject. Not better, but different.

Tetyana Fedorova-McGowan's picture

Hello Peter, hello everybody! :)

Thank you for creating this group and for adding me!
My name is Tetyana Fedorova-McGowan, born and raised in Lviv, Ukraine, currently located in Toledo, Ohio. I've always had passion for arts - drawing, beading, some various handcrafting, but it's always been on and off thing. I do it, then get tired of it. But with photography it's totally different :) It feels like I've been doing it all my life, but in real it's been a little over three years. I love fashion, beauty, creativity, esthetics, improvisation and challenges. And photography is letting me to experience all these factors. But my problem is that I am a self learner and really don't know techniques, just guessing how to create and achieve that perfect image. Sometimes it takes hours of editing and retouching, and I still be not happy with results.
I hope to learn from you and members of the group as well as share my work and get some constructive advices.
This is my FB portfolio page:

Hi,
My name is Damir from Sydney, Australia. After being a print journalist for 21 years, I took up photography as a hobby around a year ago.

Dan Howell's picture

Hello. I am a professional fashion and commercial photographer based in NYC. I work on many magazine, catalog and advertising projects throughout the year centering around casual fashion, bridal fashion and kids fashion. Most of my fashion assignment work takes place in my Manhattan studio or NYC-area locations. I do some work on location and I have one project that has me set up a studio in Southern California twice a year to photograph their collections. This year has been particularly busy for me as I have been working on my regular on-going clients and added a book project and a new magazine to my client list in 2015.

My work can be seen at these sites:
http://www.danhowellphotography.com
http://www.bridalfashionphotography.com
http://www.danhowell.photography

Since I do a lot of work in the bridal fashion market some people confuse me with a wedding photographer. While I respect the challenge of shooting weddings and live events, this is not at all what I do. Bridal fashion photography is fashion photography of fashion-type models wearing bridal gowns for designers and companies for their catalogs and advertising. On a bridal fashion shoot in addition to directing and shooting on the set I can be involved with developing the concept, casting the models and/or building the set.

Recently I have created a series of images of bridal fantasy fashion images (some are shown on my FStoppers page) that are composites of studio model images and stock background images. This year I have been working on several magazine and catalog shoots of costumes for both Halloween and Cosplay for Simplicity Pattern Company and Cosplay Culture magazine. I will be posting images from these shoots as they are published.

Dan, I just want to say that I have bookmarked your work and plan to return to it many times for inspiration. You sir have a phenomenal body of work. Consider me blown away. You have instantly become one of my faves.

Im very happy to have you here and I'm hoping we all get the chance to read some of your insight on various topics.

Hi everyone,

I'm Raj, based in California.
