PHOTOGRAPHY SDS WEEK 2 – Find a fashion photographer and collect some of their work

French-born Patrick Demarchelier is a fashion and portrait photographer. This legend is one of the bests in the industry. The most well-known fashion magazines have his work all over their pages, as well as the most prestigious brands such as Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Yves Saint Laurent, Versace and Calvin Klein. In 1992, Demarchelier began a long-term collaboration with Harper’s Bazaar, becoming the magazine’s premier photographer.

His photography style inspires me, since he has de ability to ease models into a peaceful and serene mode, making them reveal their emotions required for a particular purpose. “Lighting helps to bring the character out” he says.  Some of Demarchelier’s photographs have also the power to captivate me due to the futuristic vision, sophistication and classic style present on it.

I started to follow Patrick Demarchelier’s work on fashion magazines.
