Image Makers, Image Takers

Author(s): Anne-Celine Jaegar


Image Makers, Image Takers systematically examines what motivates and inspires today’s photographers – and what makes them succeed.

• How do the world’s leading photographers, in art, documentary, fashion, advertising and portraiture, actually work?
• What do picture editors, curators, agency directors and publishers look for when they choose an image?

Here is how Mario Sorrenti was inspired to capture a naked Kate Moss draped over a sofa for the iconic Calvin Klein campaign, how Fabrice Dall’Anese came to do a photo shoot with George Clooney in a hotel bathroom and how Rineke Dijkstra gets the best from her subjects.

In this new and expanded edition five new interviews have been added, plus a chapter on web and digital that highlights the importance of blogging and online galleries.

Through her perceptive interviews and selection of over 250 images, Anne-Celine Jaeger delves into the working practice of famous photographers, unveiling the process of creation involved in making and taking a photograph including 
- What to look for in an image
- Cropping
- Colour versus black-and-white
