Playing Hide and Seek With Inspiration

How I find inspiration:

1) Use old work

  • Recreate old personal photoshoots
  • Failed personal photoshoots
  • Old ideas that were never photographed

2) Use a tearsheet

  • Tear out photos from magazines or newspapers
  • Make a folder of inspirational images on your computer
  • Use Pinterest to pin ideas to different boards

3) Work it out

  • Talk through your ideas with friends
  • Draw them (even if you’re terrible at drawing)
  • Write about the idea/process, keep a journal

4) Plan the shoot

  • Create lighting schematics
  • Scout out locations
  • Find the perfect model/subject
