Had a fun shoot for the London Times with Katy Perry(I kissed a girl and I liked it)today and must say it was fun switching into fashion mode from the normal photojournalism mode. I've always emulated Richard Avedon, one of history's great fashion photogs, and strongly believe that fashion and news use the same skills. Good light, decisive moment, and able to make your subject matter feel at ease. The differences I find are dealing with lots of stylists, PR people, assistants, having to order lunch right in the middle of the shoot;< and having to look for a different kind of beauty.
