50 Top Portraits of a Photographer’s Career

It’s not often a master photographer sits down and talks about his journey becoming a photographer and shares a wealth of information with whomever is interested in learning, but that is just what Gregory Heisler has done in the informative two-hour video that you can watch here:

“They had just come back from some remote part of China photographing the oldest known human footprint. You have to appreciate the reason they hired this guy, he’s not shooting aerials over Rio,they flew him to China to photograph a piece of dirt. That’s the true test of a photographer, if you can make a piece of dirt come alive and tell a story–that’s what they are hiring him for.”

Some of the sage advice Heisler shares in the video reflects his feelings on lighting. Heisler suggests that when shooting portraits, to make it look at natural as possible. As a fan of window light, he tries to make his photos appear as though he just happened to be there with great light, such as in the portrait of Bruce Springsteen (above).

This masterclass is directed towards his new book: 50 Portraits
