Mags & Shoots

We show you our latest Fashion Photo Shoots, Fashion Trends and Second-hand Fashion Interpretations here.

Fashion Photography requires a keen eye for detail, beauty and light, in order to create unique images that evoke feeling. Without feelings, photograph’s don’t talk to us. Photographs need to bring out the soul of the person and make a garment come alive! At 2nd Take we are lucky, because when we shoot our second-hand Fashion, we have an amazing array of different designer clothes available to choose from. We will also endevour to use our own 2nd Take colleagues to show that Designer Fashion can look amazing on everyone, regardless of size and shape. You don’t have to be a super model to look beautiful. We hope we contribute a little to showing that everyone has their own beauty and if you make second-hand Fashion choices carefully, your beauty can be enhanced.

Our shoots require lots of preparation and every 2nd Take team member needs to play their part on the day of the fashion shoot. Beforehand we decide on the look and feel of the shoot. Our Fashion Team selects the second-hand Fashion we want to show and the Photography team scouts location and does the casting.

Once we established the location and the Fashion models, the designer clothing items have to be fitted to the models.

We especially enjoy Photography Editorials we do for our online Magazine TRENDTAKE or our second-hand fashion catalogue FASHIONTAKE. It is fun to photographically interpret a theme or concept.
