THE OUTFITS

Once the photographers were given the information about the subjects, they were presented with a number of outfit choices and were asked to select the outfit that they thought best represented the subject personality and their vision as an artist.


THE LOCATIONS

The photographers were also asked to select the location(s) in which the subjects would be photographed. In order to fully capture their vision the photographers were not given any limitations in where their shoots would take place.
