Behind the Scenes of a Photo Shoot

Location: Milk Studios, Los Angeles

Mission: Photo shoot recon



OK, so I’m not exactly 007, but I’m definitely on assignment here in Southern California. I’m investigating what really happens behind the scenes at a photo shoot. As a beauty editor, I know a few things about the photo shoot world, but I still have a ton of questions that need answers. For example, is modeling really hard work? Do the companies actually use the products they sell? Are all wardrobe stylists as panic-attack prone as Rachel Zoe?

Luckily, I have an easy in. The hair pros at Nioxin and Sebastian let me join them as they as they shoot new looks for their latest campaigns. That means ultimate access to the models, the products, the stylists, and the company bigwigs.



I even brought my camera along, just in case I uncover some interesting secrets — or if I just want to snap some photos of amazingly gorgeous hair. So come along, I’m just about to walk in and find out what it really takes to make a successful photo shoot.
