Creative Showcase: The Best Celebrity Photographers

From product to landscape and underwater to portraiture, there are dozens upon dozens of different types of photography out there. Today, we’re focusing on celebrity photography.

Taking professional pictures of famous individuals comes with its own set of difficulties. First of all, you’re photographing someone who gets photographed all the time. On the bright side, that means they probably know how to pose and make themselves look good on camera. On the downside, there are already hundreds or thousands of quality pictures of them out there, meaning sometimes you have to be extra creative to make yourself stand out from the crowd.

These types of photo shoots can also be incredibly hard to arrange as well. They often only happen under tight time restrictions with lightning fast turnarounds. Plus, if you happen to be working with a celebrity who is a particular diva, that just makes everything that much harder.

Despite the difficulties, plenty of photographers love shooting celebrities. In this week’s showcase, we’re highlighting five of the best celebrity photographers we know.
