There are lots of things to think about when you start planning a model photoshoot, so it can be useful to use visual prompts. You'll need to think about the vibe, the location, what the subject is going to wear and what poses you want them in, so having somewhere you can keep all your ideas together is incredibly useful. 

Whenever I come up with an idea for a photoshoot, I always start planning it using Pinterest. It’s the modern-day version of cutting and sticking pictures from a magazine to create a mood board, only you can add collaborators and easily send it to everyone involved.
