On The Edge Of The Lens

Terry Richardson takes pictures.  The subjects of his pictures tend to be some what famous and some what sexy, as one of the world’s most sought after photographers, I’m sure its just part of the job.  Through the lens of a camera he is able to capture the raw essence of his subjects while creating a tragic, provocative, and gorgeous photo.

Terry was born in New York City in 1965 but spent most of his childhood growing up in California.  When his rock band fell apart, with a little nudge from his mother, Terry put down his bass guitar and picked up a camera.

His work is not limited to celebrity portraits.  In fact, he has an impressive resume of big time magazine editorials and fashion designer advertisements.  Gucci, Levi, Miu Miu, Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, and GQ are only a few of the names Terry has considered a client.  Richardson is at the top of his game, and continues to produce cutting edge work.  Keep your eyes out for this man, he is one of the best American photographers today.
