First Takes: July/August 2008
Jim Richardson, Caesar Lima, August Bradley and George Fulton
August Bradley is primarily a fashion and beauty photographer in Los Angeles. His execution involves high concept and high style. In a way, however, this image is something of an exception in that it's a self-portrait, after a fashion. Says Bradley, “The image is not so much a self-portrait, rather I was using the cheapest model available at the time, though it does depict the detailed visual observation that plays a big part of what I do. The photograph isn't as representative of my portfolio overall, except perhaps that it shows me observing the world and my subjects quite closely.” Look for a portfolio of Bradley's work in the next issue of Digital Photo Pro.
