He takes a lot of commercial photographs but also photographs for fashion magazines like Vogue.
Steven Klein's shots are disturbing, dark and depressing and many of them are taken in urban places like old houses, factories or basements.

Steven Klein also really seems to like Brad Pitt..He took a lot of photographs with him in different styles..sometimes it's even hard to recognize that it's Brad Pitt who is in the picture.

Fantasy -- Annie Leibovitz

Hey there!
Today I'm going to talk about FANTASY!
Probably the best example for a fashion-photographer who works with fantasy-themed photographs is Annie Leibovitz:

Annie Leibovitz is a famous photographer who is not just taking fashion-photographs.
For many years she worked at the music magazine "RollingStone".
She was the one who took the famous cover-picture of John Lennon and his wife Yoko Ono just 5 hours before he died.

But let's talk about something happier then John Lennon's death.. let's talk about leibovitz' fashion-photographs!!
Annie Leibovitz takes almost all of her pictures in her fairytale style.
Her shoots look more like a picture out of a movie than a photograph:

Annie Leibovitz usually uses outdoor backgrounds for her pictures because they make it easier to create a mystic atmosphere which exists in all her pictures.

But she can even create her classic atmosphere in indoor pictures:

Well guys.. that's it for today!
I hope you'll visit again.
