    There is a very strong “1970’s fashion” feel to each and every portfolio. It could be worse. It could be a 1980’s fashion feel…

      Retro nostalgia is the thing right now. At least judging from euro photographers I see on Instagram. Ive never heard of any of these photographers though, not exactly the A list.

      • Bo Dez

        you’ve never heard of Ellen Von Unwerth? lol, ok then.

        • eric

          nope. I googled her. Never seen her work before. she seems to be from a different era.

          • Bo Dez

            well that just shows how little you know.

          • eric

            Whatever dude. Worship whoever you want. Im not an old person. I follow my contemporaries like Kat Irlin and Elsa Bleda…way better photographers. But to each there own.

          • Bo Dez

            No, it’s not worship. It’s just a question of history that you should know if you are going to comment that no one is A list when they clearly are. Ellen has consistently shot every Vogue, Vanity Fair, V, W, Harpers, for decades and she is a seminal and very influential photographer.

            As for your contemporaries you follow, they look rather dated and hardly fashion, but like you say, each to their own. They are hardly “way better photographers”. For contemporaries who would challenge I would suggest someone like Harley Weir, Jamie Hawkesworth, Johnny Dufort, Colin Dogson etc.

          • It’s always worthwhile to check out the work of the people that likely influenced your “contemporaries”.
            I suppose Richard Avedon, Yousuf Karsh, Annie Leibovitz etc. are all too dated for you as well? The people you follow derived their styles from photographers that came before them, it’s good to study them too.
            Some of those photographers are beyond “A list” by the way, they would be considered “Elite”. You need to educate yourself on the European photographers, past and present, if you want to understand the styles of the photographers you mentioned.

          • eric

            I know who Richard Avedon, Annie Leibovitz, Diane Arbus, HCB, Alex Webb, Lartigue, David Lachappelle, Helmut Newton, Robert Frank, and many other greats are. I never heard of that person mentioned though and would not consider her a significant photographer. That’s just my opinion. There are literally thousands of fashion + famous photographers today. Pick whoever you like. I don’t have time to study everyone in history, so I only study the best alongside following my contemporaries who are relevant to my era. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that.

    • Bo Dez

      what? no there isn’t.
