Statement Necklaces: Photographer Outfit Upgrade

I’ve had the chance to attend Altitude Summit & Craft Culture this year, and both conferences/workshops emphasized the importance of branding.  One part of branding is dressing the brand that you want to communicate.  While I want to communicate authenticity and a natural, down-to-earth sense in my ways and my style, and ultimately my photography, I also want to communicate an appreciation for beauty, a sense of professionalism, and a bit of playfulness.  And on top of all that, I want to be comfortable enough to lay on the ground for a great shot, and I don’t like to wear shirts that are too vibrant due to their color casting effect on my subjects.  So, what is the perfect touch to an outfit to convey this branding?  A statement necklace…  They are bold, fun, beautiful, dressy, can be paired with jeans, and they are IN right now.  See my favorite statement necklaces below…

What do you think?  And what are your favorite statement necklaces right now?  I’d love to own some more asymmetrical, tribal looking statement necklaces next.  What are your favorite apparel branding tricks?  What about you men?  I’ve been working on the perfect photographer wedding apparel.  I will have to share that with you in a next post!  Thank you for humoring my posed shots.  I prefer to use other models.  😉

If you are interested in a fashion or product photo shoot, give me a jingle!

Ciao for now!
