Luc Coiffait is a photographer who originates from England, but works mainly in NYC and LA. His work centers around fashion and capturing his subjects in “a striking yet natural way.” What I love most about this work is his use of color. He does not shy away from bright and bold clothing and patterns. It is through this that his work catches your eye. The orange hue in the last image adds another layer of detail to the work. Coiffait also takes advantage of good natural lighting when he is able to. Lots of his images are taken outside and the sunlight he uses to illuminate the shot only lures the viewer closer to the beauty of the work.
Adrian Martin is a Los Angeles based fashion photographer. His work really interests me because of his inclusion of scenery. He tells a story about the model using their surroundings. The interaction with the objects and background gives more insight to the person in the shot. The scenery helps to explain what is going on outside of the frame that we do not get to see. All that is given for viewers to see is what is in the frame and Martin takes advantage of that as best he can. His inclusion of objects reels you in as your eyes continue to scan the photographer for even more details. This work is a reminder for me to really make the best of what location I am at and how I can use it to tell the story I want people to see.
Mark Clennon is a New York based photographer whose work is primarily focused on editorial, commercial, and documentary projects. The thing I love the most about Clennon’s work is his use of lines, structures, and color in his backgrounds. He is able to find and use these interesting backgrounds that add geometrical shapes into the work. This, plus his use of various wild colors with the fashion selections, makes for a very captivating photograph. I also enjoy how he encourages the models to make weird shapes or look away from the camera. Clennon’s work isn’t conventional to say the least. Having models stick their arms out in a strange way or bend forward while looking away from the camera may seem unusual but that is what makes this work so unique and why Clennon is able to capture the attention of all who look at his photographs.
