One of my biggest fashion photography inspirations is by far Richard Avedon. He was the trailblazer in the fashion photography industry breaking away from the standard technique of emotionless, lifeless photographs, and instead bringing action and life. His pictures are captivating and reveal the true essence of 'the moment'. Every picture eloquent, beautiful and real. No one did it quite like Mr. Avedon; truly one of the greats.
This giraffe photograph is not Richard Avedons' but it is an Avedon inspired Vogue photograph that I think is quite wonderful.
