Whenever we see a nice photo, we always admire the professional talents of the photographer and art director. Not many people know the important role of stylists in co-operating with photographers and art directors to produce beautiful photos.

A freelance stylist, 26-year-old Prak Chhayrotana told us about her responsibilities for deciding lighting and shooting techniques, alongside the art director, who looks for and chooses a nice scene for shooting.

Preparing the clothes and accessories is also the responsibility of the stylist.

Rotana added that, before she can prepare clothes for models or clients, she has to make an appointment with clients to find out about their characteristics and discuss the scene with the art director.

Besides preparing the clothes and accessories for the clients in shooting, the stylist has the responsibility to tell and direct the models or clients how to act or pose in order to fit with their character.

For example, if the clients like a simple style, the clothes and the way of posing have to be simple too.

But, for projects that are coordinated with fashion models, the subjects are required to dress and act or pose in a different style.

Working as a stylist does not require her to work a full day or full working week. She can work whenever she is given projects that she likes, for instance, pre-wedding shoots, comtemporary fashion and high fashion.

This job also requires her to keep updating with new and modern fashion from around the world.
