Fashion Photography. The earliest know Fashion Photography was documents to be In 1856, when Adolphe Braun published a book containing 288 photographs of Virginia Oldoini, Countess di Castiglione, a Tuscan noblewoman at the court of Napoleon III. The photographs show the woman her in her official court garb, which has essentially made her the first known fashion model. In 1909 Conde Naste Took over Vogue and the magazine started to develop and celebrate female fashion. Fashion was promoted by the use of fine art photography and seen as an art form. In 1911 Edward Steichen took photos of gowns designed by couturier Paul Poiret. According to Jesse Alexander, This is "...now considered to be the first ever modern fashion photography shoot. That is, photographing the garments in such a way as to convey a sense of their physical quality as well as their formal appearance, as opposed to simply illustrating the object.” Images Copyright of Chantal Storrs-Barbor Photography, firstname.lastname@example.org Telephone: 07552 129418 Camberley, SurreyKeywords: Editorial Fashion Photographer (3), Fashion Inspiration (5), Fashion Photographer (2), Fashion Photography (4), Surrey (7), Surrey Fashion Photographer (11).
