Fashion photography is an industry devoted to capturing the talent of an artist in a portrait.
The clothes, the looks, and even the style in which photographs are clicked these days are quite setting up the trends.
Be it the ramp walk shows, the vivid costumes, and most notably the glamour this industry puts forward, none of these would get our attention unless the photograph impresses at first sight.
One of America’s most known fashion photographer Bill Cunningham quotes, “Fashion is the armor to survive the reality of everyday life.”
The fashion photography industry has been growing steadily in the US since 2014, It has also significantly influenced the way people take photoshoots in personal events like weddings.
With so much photographic content out there, the top fashion photographers stand out from the crowd by crafting their own portrait style. As true artists believe, every photograph is a memory frozen to remember.

Social Animal’s influencer search feature was used to perform an exact search for the keywords fashion photographer, model photographer, fashion photography, etc. in their Twitter Bio.
(Exact search: “fashion photographer”)
The accumulated number of results was more than 10K. The top parameters considered to sort were Listed On and The number of followers.
Now, the number of results was 380. They were then listed based on their Twitter following, engagement, and authenticity of their profile.
To make the list more authentic, the Following accumulation factor was also added to the list.
This excellent parameter is the number of unique follows a profile gets on Twitter and is provided by Tweeple Search.
After the final list was sorted based on follower accumulation, the profiles of the top 81 best fashion photographers were listed.
I really admired the work of all the fashion photographers listed in the article and their pictures gave a very distinct experience of the fashion world.
Here are a few pointers observed in the process of creating this article.
