Great fashion photography, at its best, reflects and shapes the era in which it is made. Whether you are a student, aspiring photographer, or working professional, building a fashion portfolio that aspires to this standard can be daunting. The Fashion Image will help you develop your style through practical advice for image makers. Beginning with a history of fashion photography, Thomas Werner offers advice on assembling your creative team, casting models, developing shoot concepts, and producing photographs and fashion film for editorial and advertising. Professional practice, including self-promotion, social media, set etiquette, and fashion in a global context are also discussed. This is ´how to´ at the highest level, with interviews from working fashion photographers, magazine editors, producers, fashion designers, and more, with around 200 color photographs that illustrate the fashion image at its best. With an extensive list of international resources, including Instagram accounts and several assignments, this book is an essential guide for fashion photographers and film makers.
The Compound Labs, the original group of clones freed from the notorious medical centre, are continuing to live successfully alongside the normal humans in society. They are uneasy to realise that the militant group of clones, the Radicals, are gaining more and more followers from the Labs and their Hybrid children. The Radicals, sponsored by an anonymous billionaire, have a vision of a future society where every member is given a designated role according to their abilities. They have plans to rule this new way of life with a specially created perfect clone and his equally talented team, showing little regard for those they consider inferior mentally and physically. Have they created a team of unfeeling, super-intelligent people who will stop at nothing to achieve their aims? Are the Compound Labs strong enough to defeat them in their crusade? Can a young Hybrid girl use the power of love and compassion to awaken deeply hidden human traits and force at least one man to challenge the course they have set themselves?
