Fashion World Video: Are There Too Many Photographers? 

Tommy Ton, fashion blogger/photographerI was intriduged by today's Video Pick (an excellent piece by Garage Magazine) from the perspective of historial fashion journalism. The rise of bloggers and street photographers has increased the visibility and proliferation of fashion images, and I suspect it's the same in every lifestyle segment.

Aside from my work at the New York Institute of Photography, I run an interior design blog, and there are a zillion blogs in my space now (I was an early pioneer back in 2007), and each design event is photographed by dozens of shooters, from pros with DSLRs to smartphone snappers. Sports, fashion, design, celebrities, politics, general news - literally every segment of society is now photographed like - as our video today points out - a parody of reality shows.

We have this sudden urge to document everything and everyone, and then spread the word. Digital photography, the blogosphere, social networks, and smartphones make citizen journalism possible - with its positive and negative connotations. It makes you want to be a much more careful consumer of blogs, magazines, and websites, doesn't it? Let's start to sift through all the images and discern which ones show great photographic technique.

I'm a Fan of Photographer Darnell Scott

Darnell Scott, Photographer

 I'm always on the lookout for photographers who produce images that draw me in and engage me. That recently happened when I came across a video interview conducted by photographer Darnell Scott. Scott's winning style and embrace of multiple from genres, from street and fashion to skateboard and landscape, takes a fresh "why not capture it?" curiosity with the world, and he's an articulate representative of the profession. In his modest words, "I bring optical promise."

On the Job: Fashion Photographer Gabor Szantai


Fashion, fine art, and editorial photographer Gabor Szantai takes us on the job in this video of a behind-the-scenes look at a fashion shoot he ran for UK design house Fabryan. The video, by fashion and lifestyle photographer Stephen Brockerton, does a great job of capturing the mileau of a fashion shoot - the music, the hair and make-up artists, the dressers, the props and staging people. Each member of the team makes an important contribution to what the fashion photographer is able to pull off.

Video Pick: Vogue's Most Influential Photographers

Self portrait, photographer Irving Penn, 1943
It doesn't do Vogue justice to describe it only as a fashion magazine. Its pages have been devoted to images that have taken the art of photography to new levels. Imagery carefully envisioned and composed by talented photographers have elevated the magazine to the heights of periodical excellence and, and images become both captivating and iconic upon publication. While the beginning of our video pick focuses primarily on Anna Wintour's tribute to the work of Irving Penn, and the intricate relationship between photographer and editor in chief, there is a survey and sharing of the works of other influential photographers from Vogue's past. Enjoy.
