My Playlists : Music for Photoshoots & Editing


Looking for a fun music playlist to turn on during your next photoshoot?

Look no further! I love making playlists, & I’ve had some requests to share a few of my most-played…so I thought i’d start with two of the main lists i’ve created for myself to use during shoots & while editing. Playing music during a shoot really helps to keep the energy on set at a good level, & gives both you & your client an excuse to relax & dance around a little. And of course, we photographers spend so many hours in post-production that it really helps us focus to have a little soundtrack for ourselves to listen to as well while we’re staring into our screens.

I’m constantly updating these lists, so be sure to follow me on Spotify & check out the playlists below so that you’ll never be stuck for new music!



Collection of upbeat, diverse tracks - clean but not boring, perfect for any photoshoot & any client!



Totally random variety of genres, & definitely not clean. You’ll either love it or hate it - but hey, go ahead & try something new!


Just so you know…

Can’t we just simply play music during our photoshoots so that we & our clients can have a fun soundtrack while we’re working? No, of course not. Because nothing is simple & nothing is free, there are actually restrictions on us business owners when it comes to legally being able to play music in our place of business. Believe it or not, if your studio meets certain requirements, you’re technically supposed to have a special licence to play music legally.
