If I could emulate ONE Portrait Photographer, It would be this guy
When I was introduced to Martin Schoeller’s “Portraits” I was absolutely blown away. The depth of his images are immense. From the emotion he captures down to the perfect lighting and moments captured.
It’s one thing to to everything I listed above but to do it time and time again with the biggest names in the world from celebrities to politicians to musicians and athletes is astonishing.
This is a large hardback book that is selling for just over $80 but I can tell you that it is one of the favorites that sits on my shelf. If you love portraits or you simply love photography this book is a must have.
