Style Staples for Photographers

As a photographer, I know first hand the intricacies of putting together a stylish, yet functional look for work. When I’m in the studio shooting a session, I need to look polished. But, I also need to have ninja-like agility and free range of motion. Style staples for photographers must have that perfect blend of fashion and utility.

Photographer Style Tips and Tricks

What to wear? Here are some pointers to keep in mind when seeking out style staples for photographers. Layers are your friends. Look for layers with extra storage (pockets) for all your small gear items. If mobility is your key concern, go for a jumpsuit with some stretch (and yes, pockets). Photographing a wedding or event? Opt for a chic utility dress (with, you guessed it, pockets) in a hue that fits the occasion. Other important details? Bold, minimal accessories that won’t catch and supportive footwear that can keep up.
