Keith Major. Thursday, Apr 2 2009 

Wednesday nights = America’s Next Top Model. This week’s photographer was Keith Major and I just loved how his pictures turned out. He did an amazing shoot where the models had their faces sprayed with a color which they had to evoke through emotion in their photos. I tried to find some of these to post with my blog but those photos haven’t appeared available online yet. Instead, I googled Keith Major and found his portfolio. His work consists mainly of beauty, fashion, music, and celebrity photography. He uses a lot of artificial light in his portraits which also are frequently shot close up. I’ve included some of my Major favorites below.

Iron and Wine photographed by Ferguson.

Iron and Wine photographed by Ferguson.

Piper Ferguson is a photographer and music video director that I have recently come across, although I have seen some of her work before. Now I can finally¬† put a name with the photos. But I particularly like this one of Samuel Beam, a folk singer and songwriter who goes by the stage name of Iron and Wine. I think Ferguson has a knack for conveying a lot of information about the musicians she photographs. The photo itself gives off a folk feel with the wheat field landscape and the pastoral scene also produces the same kind of serenity that you can hear in many of his songs. To see more of Ferguson’s work, you can visit her site here.
