There is no such thing as an independent fashion photographer. During a shoot, you will collaborate with a group of other creative individuals. In an ideal scenario, you should all be working towards the same objective, and you should all have a cohesive picture of what the plot and concept for the shoot should be. The level of difficulty of your shoot should guide both the size of the crew you assemble and the specific individuals you look to employ. If the situation calls for it, you may need to engage stunt performers with specific training or other particular abilities.
Suppose you are not working with stunts or shooting in unusual locations, such as in the water. In that case, likely, you will only need to collaborate with a team consisting of photo assistants, stylists, makeup artists, hair artists, and models. You may need additional crew members working with stunts or shooting in unusual locations, such as in the water.
