Portrait photography or portraiture's main purpose is capturing the personality or essence of one or more people. Usually, there is an emphasis on lighting, background, and poses. Portraits can serve many purposes, from usage on a personal website to display in a home, office, or business. Headshots are a specific type of portrait to be used by a professional, business owner or a team to brand him or herself through social media such as LinkedIn, Facebook, or their own website. There are also other means of utilization such as print media and email correspondence. Headshots also serves as an introduction for an actor or model seeking casting.
Fashion photography is devoted to displaying clothes or other fashion items and products. Fashion shoots can be commercial (catalog) or editorial. Even a senior portrait session can be a fun fashion style photoshoot! It's all about the mood, the clothes, the style.
Fitness and boudoir photography both capture the human form. In boudoir, for both men ("dudeoir") and women, there is an emphasis on intimate and sensual posing in various states of dress (or undress if you will.) Dramatic lighting and flattering posing makes both fitness and boudoir shoots stand out from the other shoots. These shoots are about your own special beauty.
Editorial or conceptual photography involves illustrating an idea or a story. These photoshoots are often used in magazines, in advertisements, or as stand alone pieces of fine art. These shoots can be used for commercial purposes as well as personal purposes. Whatever you can dream up can be created in some form and captured.
