Photo Shoot-A Video Demonstration

A photo shoot is generally used in the fashion or glamour industry, whereby a model poses for a photographer at a studio or an outdoor location where multiple photos are taken to find the best ones for the required brief. The "model" is not always a person, however; for instance, advertising in print often requires photographic depiction of advertised goods, and food can be the subject of magazine articles (often in very elaborate presentations).


  • Modelling for a newspaper or magazine article
  • Modelling fashion designs, for a designer or store
  • Advertising a company's product, which may be presented by a model
  • Aviation: Air-to-air photo shoots or photography of an aircraft, with another acting as a photo- or camera-ship
