As a keen portrait photographer I spend a lot of my time chasing my idols. At least online.
So I thought I would share with you all some of my fav portrait photographers so that you can get a glimpse inside my mind and theirs and learn what it is that makes a great photographer great.
My List of Portrait Geniuses
There are so many photographers in the world today, but so few that are really standing out.
One of my favorite is Yuri Yasuda. He is a Japanese genius.
Simplicity is the key, or course, but with a little creativity his portraits have taken the world by storm. Below is one of my favorite images of all time.
Sarah Cheng-de Winne
Another of the starts in portraiture is indeed Sarah. She has a way with the camera, and Photoshop of course, that makes her photos pop.
If only I could get my portraits looking as amazing as hers I would open my studio in New York sooner rather than later!
Here is one of my favorite portraits from her that certainly will inspire you to shoot more often!
One of the few real life photographers out there, Alessandro manages to capture things as they happen. And he also manages to portray life as it is. Few frills are added.
His recent series of an Italian summer beach holiday really got my attention and the image below is very indicative of his style. Enjoy
Simon is more of a photographer of models, but I still think we can all learn something from him. His way of capturing the emotion of the moment really appeals to me, and perhaps will to you to.
Be sure to head over to his website when it is updated and see what he has to offer, you won’t be disappointed.
Those are four of my favorite photographers that deal mainly with portraits and style. So if you want to learn a thing or two about photography then I recommend you follow their latest stuff as well.
You will not be disappointed that is for sure.
If you have any other suggestions for photographers that I would be following too, be sure to drop me a line.
