THE CELEBRITY PORTRAIT: 15 MINUTES WITH FAME

with Sony Artisan of Imagery Brian Smith
When: 3-5pm, July 7, 2009
Location: B&H Photo, 420 9th Ave, New York, NY 10001

Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Brian Smith has been photographing with the famous and infamous faces of celebrities for the past two decades. Smith will share his favorite celebrity portraits and the stories behind them. He will discuss the importance that styling, hair & make-up and location play in adding production value to his shoots and ways to maximize the re-licensing value of the images.

He will also show his latest work ART & SOUL shot in partnership with The Creative Coalition and Sony featuring portraits of celebrities alongside their hand-written thoughts about the importance of the arts. Smith photographed a series of 85 celebrity portraits over 6 days in Los Angeles and New York. In May of this year, members of The Creative Coalition took the book to the White House and Congress to lobby for support of the arts. Smith will discuss the story behind the commission, his approach to the shoot, and the significance of being able to use his photographs for arts advocacy.
