Climate change is one of the burning issues in our society, and many photographers are doing what they can to raise awareness about it. But Vogue Italia recently turned to a pretty unusual method of helping the environment – they banned photography completely. The latest issue of the popular fashion magazine features no photos whatsoever, and it caused mixed reactions in the community.
Vogue Italia has recently published a cover featuring Gigi Hadid that caused quite a stir. The model appeared with overly-darkened skin, causing the public to accuse Vogue Italia and photographer Steven Klein of racism. It has gone so far, that even Hadid herself has apologized for the controversial cover, explaining that she had no control over the final result.
The upcoming March issue of British Vogue features Gigi and Bella Hadid on the front and back cover. However, the photo inside the magazine, where the sisters are posed together, has recently shocked the public. Hadid sisters are posed completely nude in a pose that many people described as “distasteful,” “gross” and even “sick.”
After banning Terry Richardson, Vogue publisher Condé Nast is cutting ties with another two famous fashion photographers: Mario Testino and Bruce Weber. The reason behind the decision is the same – the photographers have been accused of sexual abuse.
With the #MeToo movement becoming bigger, the number of sexual abuse accusations is rising. And according to recent claims against Weber and Testino, abuse hasn’t affected female models alone. These photographers have been accused of sexual misconduct by male models and assistants.
As important as the shoot itself is, as well as post-production, an oft-overlooked aspect of shooting an image is the pre-production. Specifically, the process of creating the set upon which the model will be posing for the entirety of the shoot.
Today though, we get a behind-the-scenes look at what exactly it takes to set up a scene for one of the best in the business, Vogue.[Read More…]
Vogue magazine caused quite a bit of rage among photographers, along with copious amounts of ridicule, when it recently published a list of 10 wedding “rules” to which it recommends brides-to-be say “I don’t”.
The reason for this was the magazine’s statement that couples shouldn’t hire professional wedding photographers, and should rather rely on the guests’ smartphones and disposable cameras.
These next photos, taken by wedding photographer John Warren and a guest, are the perfect answer to Vogue’s nonsense. As the saying goes, a picture’s worth a thousand words.
Announcing it is 2016 and that it’s time weddings change, Vogue released a list of 10 wedding “rules” to break.
Among the things that Vogue claims will “detract” from the “raw, essential celebration of true love” are rings, the first dance and professional wedding photographers.
Instead, the magazine recommends couples rely on their guests’ Facebook and Instagram photos, or give them disposable cameras.
Vogue magazine’s editor at large, Elisabeth von Thurn und Taxis, caused a stir after she posted the photo to her Instagram account, captioned “Paris is full of surprises….and @voguemagazine readers even in unexpected corners!”
The fact that she is an actual princess and belongs to one of the wealthiest families in Germany provoked even more criticism.
Should rich people avoid photographing the poor?
