A lot of creatives have been forced to rethink their approach when in comes to producing content which has re-fueled the Facetime photoshoot. This isn’t anything new, in fact, Kim Kardashian brought it into the mainstream mindset in 2015 for her Interview Magazine cover but yesterday Bella Hadid kicked the digital window wide open again. Her Vogue Italia shoot pushed the boundaries as it had multiple people on FT including a stylist for the project. I think this is something we’re going to have to get used to in the days, months and perhaps years to come as things are undeniably changing. Do I like it? I can see how the voyeuristic factor plays a roll and how it can be extremely relatable to the younger viewers because let’s face it, kids would rather FT than hangout and text instead of call. I don’t love the concept and I’m not opposed to it, but I am curious to see how far this will go. Is it going to get to a point where we can remotely access cameras (not like this) from across the world? Will this devalue the need of a “pro photographer” or eliminate the financial compensation for all of those whom are usually on set directing and aiding the project? I suppose only time will tell.
