名人最愛的攝影師 Craig McDean自成一格
Photographer of the Week: Craig McDean


Craig McDean以相對年輕的資歷就已在時尚圈站穩腳步,也難怪曾有媒體報導,他是時尚攝影界少數酬勞高如天價的攝影師之一,據說他一天的拍攝酬勞高達美金10萬元!除此,Craig McDean的鶼鰈良伴Tabitha Simmons,本身曾是名模,後又設計鞋履還成為時尚雜誌編輯,自是帶來幫夫運,兩人齊在時尚打拼。Tabitha Simmons曾向媒體解釋Craig McDean除了攝影,其次愛的是建築,當他們買下紐約一幢房子,Craig McDean極力讓空間呈現淨白無瑕狀態,據說唯有像白紙樣,才能讓攝影師沉澱歸零再出發,才能為世人帶來更多更豐富的視覺饗宴。或許這正是他成功的原因之一吧!««
