This is the reality show I’ve been waiting for. It makes perfect sense. Take 10 aspiring fashion photographers and let them battle it out. The photography is the main reason I watch America’s Next Top Model and it’s one of my favorite shows. The Shot will hopefully be everything I imagine it to be.
VH1′s ‘The Shot’ Premieres on Sunday November 4th at 10:00 P.M.
From The Producer Of AMERICA’S NEXT TOP MODEL Comes The New VH1 Reality Competition Series ‘THE SHOT’
NEW YORK, Oct. 29 /PRNewswire/ — In VH1′s new series “The Shot,” 10
amateur photographers get the chance to live out their wildest fantasies in
pursuit of their ultimate dream: to become the next great fashion
Premiering Sunday November 4th at 10:00 p.m. “THE SHOT” is an eight
episode series that will give 10 aspiring photographers 30 days to compete
for a chance to kick-start their career as a professional fashion
photographer. The cast will live and work together in a downtown L.A. loft
while being guided by world-renowned fashion photographer Russell James.
James, known for his outstanding work in Vogue, Elle, Marie Claire, W,
Photo, Sports Illustrated and Victoria’s Secret will guide these aspiring
photographers through a series of photo shoots meant to challenge their
creativity and expose their individual weaknesses. For the first time in
their lives, the cast will work with supermodels and high-end
professionals, while traveling to exotic locations — all to capture that
one perfect shot.
Our hopefuls quickly find out that the world of high fashion is not
always glamorous — from challenging location shoots to difficulties with
models — these aspiring photographers must stay on task to prove that they
have what it takes to get the shot.
Each episode will contain a “teach challenge”, where Russell presents
the cast with a new technical or creative lesson, and a photo shoot, in
which the cast will be asked to utilize what they’ve learned in a
legitimate, fashion- oriented photo campaign. Each week Russell and his
professional panel which includes Marie Claire senior fashion editor Zanna
Roberts and Italo Gregorio a lead hairstylist from Victoria’s Secret
Beauty, will review the cast’s photos, eliminating the weakest shooter.
After a month long journey the best photographer will emerge victorious
with $100,000 courtesy of the skin experts at Vaseline, an editorial spread
in Marie Claire, and a photo spread in the Victoria’s Secret catalogue.
10 aspiring photographers … 30 grueling days … 1 shot at a
glamorous life in the world of high end fashion photography.
“THE SHOT” is executive produced by Ken Mok for 10X10 and Christian
McLaughlin, Jim Ackerman and Michael Hirschorn for VH1.
“THE SHOT” is sponsored by Hewlett-Packard, John Frieda, Vaseline and
