The Contour of Luxury Summer 2019 - Page 406

? Internationally raved for your powerful celebrity portraits, you travel the world to capture exquisite photos of legendary icons such as Catherine Deneuve, George Clooney, Penelope Cruz, Brad Pitt, Jennifer Lopez, and Selma Hayek. How does it feel experien- tially as a photographer to work with such celebrated individuals, and who was the first high-profile celeb- rity that you photographed? W ell, first and foremost, I am humbled to have worked with so many beautiful people in my career. Celebrities I worked with were to my surprise as normal as me. I met some beautiful and creative like minded people on the way. And, I still try keep in touch with a few. I got to know them up close in person. Some became great friends to date. I photographed Isabel Adjani, in Paris. This was the same time Madame Catherine Deneuve took a liking towards the way I photographed. So, I can say it wasn’t ever a first but, more like a flow of things the way I got my jobs.
