Legendary Fashion Photographers - David Bailey
What is notable among many legendary Fashion Photographers is that they didn’t really wanted to be catalogued as such, and Bailey is not the exception.
For Bailey, models were more than just “Clothes Hangers” (term I’ve heard many times in my career).
He is characteristic for not working with many models, he preferred to develop long lasting relationships. Jean Shrimpton was his muse, they even had a personal relationship. Bailey admired her for her natural talent and said “In a way she’s the cheapest model in the world… you can shoot half a roll of film and then you have it”, it was that easy and organic to work with her.
Stay tuned because every Friday we'll look at the work of a new Photographer and examples of their wonderful work.
