Palm Springs Poolside Fashion Editorial with Heather Nan

Palm Springs Poolside Fashion Editorial

with Heather Nan

Lounging by the pool in the summer sun has never looked so good - thanks to the incredible styling of Benjamin Holtrop and photography of Heather Nan. This poolside fashion shoot - sponsored by Richard Photo Lab - was more than just a stunning portfolio piece for attendees at Photo Native in Palm Springs California, but came with some invaluable knowledge as well. 


Heather Nan walked the attendees through the process of taking a killer idea for a shoot and fostering it from its conception, expanding and molding it into a solid concept, and successfully executing your vision with an all-star team of stylists, models, MUAH, and vendors. Heather unraveled the world of communicating clearly and consistently with your team through mood boards and call sheets, work effectively with model agencies and stylists, educating yourself on fashion to strengthen your vision, and building lasting relationships with brands. 

But enough about the learning, let’s talk about this gorgeous styling! Taking inspiration from the laid back nature of Palm Springs, this shoot brings together fashion & nostalgia. This palm springs fashion editorial portrays a group of three chic women poolside on their Palm Springs vacation taking time away from their busy NYC schedules. The play between the models and their environment emits a calm and classic vibe, blending together fashion photography, portraiture, & lifestyle.


“Fantastic shoot! Heather was a wealth of information and was highly organized and ran the shoot in a very efficient way.” - PN2019 Attendee Desiree Deli


“Heather was informative, answered all questions, and was willing to help me with my newbie film skills. She left me inspired to create a styled shoot for my own self!” PN2019 Attendee Shelbie Arana
