Today’s we will show the world the most effective and well-known celebrity photographers of all times and some of their work. Known by private photography shots or private family portraits, celebrities have their preferred.
But this happened even at magazines, and sites like Architecture Digest, where you can see the inside of many celebrity homes and celebrities only allow because they trust their photographers and their privacy to them.
But let’s begin with the show, and with our top list.
He was born in England to a Peruvian mother and a Polish father. It was his stepfather who gave him his first camera at the age of 11. During his teenage years at school in Oxford, Lubomirski spent his free weekends doing odd jobs waitering, gardening and bartending to save up money for travel. His serious interest in photography developed whilst traveling in Peru during a gap year at college.
He was doing fashion photography during his studies at the University of Brighton, in the UK. It was shortly after finishing his studies that he was introduced to Mario Testino, with whom he assisted for the next 4 years whilst living between Paris and London. Towards the end of his time with Testino, Katie Grand approached Alexi to shoot for the FACE magazine, and later for Harpers Bazaar US.
From Karl Lagerfeld to Calvin Klein, he has been hailed as a visionary by any number of überinsiders. Unlike many of his contemporaries, he didn’t know, straight out of the gate, that he wanted to be a photographer. Instead, he held a slew of odd jobs between leaving school at fifteen and finally picking up a camera for the first time in his early 30s; and, even then, he began his career not working with models in Paris or Milan but as a commercial photographer in Düsseldorf, Germany. No one would have predicted he was on a trajectory that would bring him to the top of the fashion industry.
His pictures are famous for the refreshing way they depict the world’s most familiar faces, appear on plain sets, in unfussy outfits, and with minimal hair and makeup.
Lindbergh was inspired by the German expressionist films of the 1920s. This influence is, for instance, visible on his photos of the Russian model Natalia Vodianova making many of his photos have become iconic.
Russell James is best known for photographing women in various stages of undress—some are entirely bare, while others wear cinched corsets, binding lingerie, or seductive underwear. His images of nude women tend to be understated and sculptural, while his photographs of scantily clad women ooze with sexuality and lust. The successful fashion and celebrity photographer made a departure from such work, however, when he embarked on his “Nomad Two Worlds” (2012) project.
His images have become synonymous with provocative, unique perspectives of many of the most prominent women of our time in the worlds of entertainment, fashion and beauty. His works have appeared in leading publications such as Vogue, W, American Photo, and Sports Illustrated.

Peruvian photographer Mario Testino is known worldwide for his portraits of some of the most famous faces – from the Royal Family to Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and Madonna. Having also shot campaigns for the likes of Burberry, Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana and Versace, he is in very high demand.
Testino made a name with his practice of putting his models into large groups which convey vitality and energy and are usually set against the backdrop of an event or a daily-life situation.Testino is today one of the world’s great fashion photographers, the source of numerous covers of the best fashion magazines . Testino has photographed celebrities such as Keira Knightley, Madonna, Kim Basinger, Elizabeth Hurley, Gwyneth Paltrow, Janet Jackson, Cameron Diaz, Meg Ryan, Julia Roberts and Catherine Zeta Jones. But what definitively elevated him to become a celebrity himself was his portraits of Princess Diana for Vanity Fair.
David LaChapelle is known internationally for his exceptional talent in combining a unique hyper-realistic aesthetic with profound social messages. LaChapelle’s photography career began in the 1980’s when he began showing his artwork in New York City galleries.
His photography is very vibrant and quite weird (but in a good way). I do think that some pieces of his work are over the top, but that’s what sets him aside from the rest & makes him unique.
Irving Penn, one of the 20th century’s most prolific and influential photographers of fashion and the famous, whose signature blend of classical elegance and cool minimalism.
Mr. Penn, as he is still respectfully remembered in the halls at 4 Times Square, worked for Vogue for seven decades. He shot everything: fashion, still lifes, movie stars, food, nudes, flowers, makeup—and 158 covers. Lined up along gallery walls, his portraits alone would form a rich visual history of the cultural life of the twentieth century. Mostly, these were taken in a specially built set that forced the sitter’s body into a corner and, often, his or her id out into the open.
American photographer was best known for his work in the fashion world and for his minimalist, large-scale character-revealing portraits. He worked first as a photographer for the Merchant Marines, taking identification photos. He then moved to fashion, shooting for Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue, demanding that his models convey emotion and movement, a departure from the norm of motionless fashion photography.
Avedon served as a staff photographer for Harper’s Bazaar for 20 years, from 1945 to 1965. In addition to his fashion photography, he was also well known for his portraiture. His black-and-white portraits were remarkable for capturing the essential humanity and vulnerability.
His father was a schizophrenic fashion photographer and his mother was also a fashion photographer named Anny Lomax. His photographs often create a buzz because some consider them to be more pornographic or sexual than other photos taken from other photographers.
Initially, his subjects were photographed with a white background however gradually he began using different backdrops. Apart from photographing his subjects, he poses with them in many pictures as well. In some pictures he lends his glasses to his subjects so they could pose pretending to be him and he could pose like them.
Richardson’s risqué photos have caused a great deal of controversy throughout much of his career. Many models have come forward with their experiences with Richardson that can only make the public conclude that Terry Richardson is a perverted rapist.
Elliott Erwitt spent his childhood in Milan. Despite his achievements in photography, Erwitt refuses to take either himself or his profession too seriously. ‘I studied photography by reading the instructions on a box of film,’ he comments in an interview on the Magnum website. ‘You don’t study photography, you do it. Eventually, you develop certain skills… Photography is not brain surgery. It’s fairly simple.’
He made his name with photo-essays on barracks life in France then joined Magnum and travelled the world, capturing famous faces and places and producing quirky studies of dogs. More recently, he has made award-winning films.
