Photographic Research- Testino

Peruvian fashion and portrait photographer. His work has featured internationally in magazines such as Vougue, V Magazine, Vanity Fair and GQ. He has also created images for brands such as Gucci, Burberry, Versace, Michael Kors, Chanel, Estée Lauder.

Testino has become one of the world’s most well known and celebrated fashion photographers. He has documented subjects from A-list stars, musicians, supermodels and artists as well as subjects he has encountered throughout his travels.

Testino was also the official photographer for portraits of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on the occasion of their engagement in December 2010.

His photography is a very sharp style as he puts a edge on celebrity fashion. He also looked to his experience growing up in Peru and his long teenage summers in Brazil for inspiration, which helped him to create a unique and personal photographic language.

I follow celebrity fashion but i don’t really keep up with the latest trends but i feel his work is very typical celebrity photography but on some of this image he has used imperfect makeup not the usually perfect makeup you see celebrities wearing.
