4 Photographers Shoot the Same Model

by Joseph De Marco October. 05, 2018 4060 views

Inspired by Jessica Kobeissi's ongoing YouTube series, I set out to try my hand at the "4 Photographers Shoot the Same Model" challenge. I reached out to some of my friends and was very pleased to get such enthusiastic responses. Myself plus three other photographers, all with different styles, backgrounds, and levels of experience, were all able to find time to come together to make this happen. Seriously, do you know how hard it is to get 4 photographers, one makeup artist, and one model together at the same time? It's hard.

The Photographers:

Myself, a digital photographer with almost 10 years of experience who (at this point) primarily shoots nudes.

David Difuntorum, my longtime friend and mentor with decades of experience who specializes in lifestyle and wedding photography.

Heather Boswick, a wedding photographer with a few years of experience.

Hayden Trace, who specializes in birth photography and is new to the world of professional photography.

All are talented but had widely different styles, experiences, and skill levels. I couldn't ask for a better group.

The Rules:

1: Each photographer picks one location and is responsible for styling and dressing the model for that location.

2: Every photographer gets three minutes to shoot in each location. The photographer who picked the spot goes first.

For each setup the location, model, outfit, and styling are the same. The idea is to see just how different the photos will be based solely on the photographer.

Huge thank you goes to Mae Claire who not only volunteered her time for a group of people she didn't know, but also brought multiple outfits so she could change 4 different times, modeled for a combined total of 16 different mini shoots shot over the course of 5 hours all in 90+ degree heat and killer humidity, and did it all with a smile. Honestly, she was amazing.

I'd also like to thank Madison Spera for the makeup. Finding one look that worked with 4 different styles could not have been easy but she nailed it.

Your Job:

1: Take a look at the photos and let us know which one is your favorite from each set. Bonus, try and guess who took which photo.

2: Visit each of my friends' pages and show them some support.

That's it. Now, onto the photos!

So how did we do? Which photos are your favorites? Should we do it again? (We're thinking of doing one each season). We'd love your feedback so please don't be shy and leave us a comment!

Bellissimo lavoro e bellissime fotografie, complimenti a tutti e anche alla Modella e staff. Le mie preferite, ma solo perché mi hanno colpito più delle altre sono #4 #6 #11 #14 . Penso che questo "esercizio" dia la dimostrazione che ognuno di noi, con lo stesso soggetto abbia una sua interpretazione e visuale. Bravi e vi seguirò per imparare dai Vostri lavori Ciao!

Great project, you should do it again for sure. Absolute fav for me is #12 . Nice to see the different styles and ideas on one subject. You can also try to shoot the model on the same location together and see what difference it makes. Nice work

This is such a cool idea and  now I wish to do it as well that's if I get a chance to put a team together . My top choices are #14 #1 #16 #11 #9, however, all shots are amazing.

All of the photos in the shoot are amazing. Hayden however has a unique style that I admire. All the photos I have chosen I think are taken by Hayden.
