Top 10 Aspiring fashion Photographers

@ Saurabh Dua

Fashion photography is everywhere around us – in magazines, billboards, online, and offline. Sometimes we prefer to ignore it, nevertheless, it reflects a story, a lifestyle, and photographer’s vision.

Iconic photographers such as Richard Avedon, Annie Leibovitz, Irving Penn, and Mario Testino revolutionized the world of photography as we know it.

It is obvious that modern photographers have to fight for their spot under the sun and the competition on the market can be brutal. All of the photographers on this list strive for excellence and perfection.

Chen Man

Chen Man exploded onto the Chinese fashion scene whilst it was still in its infancy. The photographer’s hyper-realised pop portraiture, shot for China’s Vision magazine, often 3D-textured through Chen’s mastery with both a camera and computer, has led to her being dubbed the “ Mario Testino of China.” She is credited helping to the evolution of the China’s beauty aesthetic. Although thoroughly modern in execution and appearance, Man’s imagery often references traditional Chinese culture, aiding China’s development of its own idiosyncratic aesthetic.
