Red Riding Hood - Planning your fine art photoshoot


I hope you're enjoying the journey of self-discovery in getting your mojo working. This we week we'll have a break from the action plan, to give you some time to work on it, maybe go back to week one to follow the step by step to week eight, polish on what you've been holding back and understanding what you're gaining from holding back?

This week I will introduce you to a fine art themed photo shoot I've been working on called Red Riding Hood. The story is set in the gorgeous town of St Antonin Noble Val in the South West of France for a dream photo shoot themed on Red Riding Hood.


1. Create with purpose

When I thought about the location, the movie Chocolat came to mind. I started researching images about the film and came across pictures of Red Riding Hood.  My idea evolved from the movie to Red Riding Hood walking across a medieval town, buying bread and roses to visit her grandmother.

When you've the start of an idea for a dream photo shoot (i.e. you want to be photographed in Paris or your dream city?)  in mind, it's important to understand the purpose of what you want to create and the story you want to tell. Who will be featured in the photoshoot? Is it just for you? Do you intend to bring your family and children into the story? Once you clear about your purpose and the story you want to unfold, it will be easier to plan.

2. Have a vision

Once I had decided the location and styling, I came up with three sites ideas for the shoot. The idea was to have Red Riding Hood walking through the medieval town leaving her house to visit her grandmother out of the city, having funny moments when crossing the forest with the story finishing when she arrived at her grandmother's house.

When you book a dream photo shoot, we collaborate to create a story for your purpose. We work through the styling, the location that I scout for you. Come up with a schedule for the day of the shoot. 

3. Plan and schedule

To fully enjoy your dream photo shoot experience, we will have done all the work beforehand, knowing which style you will wear and the locations we chose. The photoshoot will be fun and a unique experience where you will have created something that comes from you with my help to treasure in prints in your home.
