Hi! Been a producer for almost 3 years now and looking to make a change but trying to flex the experience I have. Contemplating getting into prop/interior styling for shoots. Any tips for this transition and how to go about it? I’m based in Chi.

Hi there, that’s awesome. I actually took some styling classes and the instructors are always looking for assistants. That can def be a way to start in addition to practicing on your own.

Additionally, if you know any prop stylists in your network, I would definitely reach to them for some advice on getting started as well.

Some classes I’ve taken in person but they are now all offered online where you start to build a portfolio:

https://www.robinzachary.com/prop-styling-class ( haven’t taken her class but she was a guest speaker at one of my FIT classes and she is awesome. I def plan to take a workshop one of these days in the future)

Good luck and feel free to message me if you have any other questions about the classes. Thanks!

I will definitely check all of this out! Thank you. Glad I posted on here :)
