The poses you choose to use in your images will depend on a lot of things, like whether you’re shooting in a studio or on location, the style of the clothing, etc. So find the ones that work best for your situation.

1. The three-quarter turn

Let’s start with one of the most simple and classic model poses out there: the three-quarter turn.

This is the position that’s in between a front-on shot and a side profile – i.e., you’re showing three-quarters of your face and body to the camera. Let’s be honest: it’s pretty much universally flattering!

2. Standing with shoulder forwards

One of the beautiful things about fashion poses is that they can be more artistic and exaggerated than those you’d find in other genres (such as portrait photography.

In the example above, you can see how the model is hunching forwards so that her shoulder comes toward her chin. This pose also works great with the face turned toward the camera, with the chin right on top of the shoulder.

3. Leg up on a wall

Get your model to place one foot up against a wall, then lean on the knee of the raised leg with their opposite arm.

Getting down low with your camera works well here as it gives the impression of the subject looming large. It also allows you to shoot wide and include some of the background if you’re doing your photoshoot on location.

A benefit of this pose is that you can capture much of the clothing in the shot – including even the shoes – while simultaneously breaking away from the traditional full-length body shot.

This pose is also perfectly suited to both males and females – another reason to keep it in your repertoire of model poses if you’re a photographer.
