Help me be a Fashion Photographer

€17,000 goal

Campaign created 23 days ago
Hello everyone,
I have always dream to be a fashion/beauty/artist photographer.

However while graduating from high school, I believed was told : that job security would solve everything and that "taking pictures" was not an option.

Nowadays I am a grown up woman, yet not happy with my job (I am an underpaid teacher in France) and certainly not happy with the way I managed my life some years ago.
Truly, I still feel the urge to create with light in photography, I have the call to be an artist.

The last 2 years I have learn all I could in photography:
I have done internship in a photographic studio, assist other
professionnal photographers, ask a lot of questions to them, the market, the future in photography, watch countless tutorials,
about everything in photography, took courses, pratice anytime I could, develop my style...

I have contacted and sent pictures of my work to many compagnies, model agencies, fashion/beauty magazines, local magazines, online magazines, travel agencies (for landscape pictures), art galleries, etc

Very few responded.
Fashion photography industry is a very difficult place to enter without any network.

For now I have only be praticing photography during my free time.
Somehow, I feel now that is not engough and never will be.

I do not want to be a photographer only during my holidays, but
I want to be a photographer as a lifestyle and be 100% of it.

I do not earn much with my job, despite all of my efforts, it took me a while to invest in photography.
I have put my few savings in buying a decent camera two years ago, 2 lenses, some filters, yet I am not able to have a proper semi-professionnal equipement.

I really hesitated before starting a campaign, but I don't know who else I can turn to.

I am only truly happy when I am taking pictures, thinking about the way to make them creative, glamorous, design an outstanding image...

I want to create the perfect picture for anyone (individual and professional) who wants elegant pictures (with retro/vintage style as I am a great fan of analog photography and Hollywood golden age, the 70', vintage french fashion).

I am willing to compensate anyone who will help me so nicely, I will offer free pictures shootings!
(If you don't need portraits, I can take pictures of your business/house/car or something else, if you prefer)

For anyone helping, I propose a free glamorous picture shooting (preferably if you come nearby the Costa Brava in Spain)
If I can reach the fundings, I would plan travels to the places of the helpers in order to offer portraits/pictures you need.

Even if I am looking for the best deals for material and everything I buy, it is still costly, this help will be use to :

-Professionnal equipment, better lenses, lightings, tripods, filters, better camera, camera bags, equipment insurance, etc.
-Professionnal software such as Lightroom, Photoshop, Indesign, etc.
-Website hosting (I created it myself but the hosting is still pricy for me).
-Rent studio when needed (I usually work outside, but some shootings need to be done in a studio)
-Hire an assistant when needed.
-Travel to meet clients, give me time to build my network.
-And above of all: take a break from my current job, have less worries and more time to pratice and get better and 100% focused on my art.

Some of my work:
(done my amateur/second hand equipment - I know I can do better with your help)
