Framing Fame and Intimacy

At NashCO we work with everyday folks, high-power CEO's, as well as celebrities and musicians. A recent article by celebrity photographer Martin Schoeller gave us a few tips and inspiration for our upcoming shoot with a well-known face.

"Most actors are hard to take good portraits of. You have access to the biggest actors and think, great, a chance to do an intimate portrait. Then you look at the contact sheet and you realize that they totally played you. They are aware of the camera in each single frame. They raise an eyebrow just so. They are very good at making it look natural, but then you look back and nothing is off-guard. Colin Farrell is an example."
