David Bailey - Photographer
I love the Swinging London era, and Bailey is one of the most representative photographers of the era, but trying to find pics, I can't see many fashion pictures, which I'd love to see, only portraits of famous people, or some fashion pictures with Jean Shrimpton.
What do you think about him? Please post pics wich you like.

Quote:
"The first and most obvious thing to do is to ooze awareness - and really look and act as if you know what you are doing. That means knowing your camera backwards: never fiddle with it during a shooting session - load it, focus it, fire it, but never fiddle. And get your background sorted out well before its time to press the shutter. Choose where you're going to do your portrait shooting, and place your subject there without dithering." David Bailey, English Portrait and Fashion Photographer.

You once referred to seeing a picture of a Picasso as a pivotal moment....

Self-portrait with Picasso
pin-up at his billet,
Singapore, 1957
© David Bailey

(2 of 20)
BAILEY: Yes, it changed my life. I always painted because it was the only thing I could do. I saw some paintings by Picasso of Dora Maar and it was like getting religion. Suddenly my whole vision changed. What Picasso showed me in an instant was there are no rules. Discovering Picasso opened up a whole network of things. Then I played trumpet—rather badly—because I wanted to be Chet Baker, and I saw these wonderful record covers of Baker and all these West Coast jazz musicians that were done by William Claxton. And that re-sparked my interest in photography. But the picture that probably inspired me the most was that famous Cartier-Bresson photograph, "Kashmir, 1948, Muslim Woman Praying at Dawn in Srinigar." So when I was 16 I started mucking around with cameras more seriously. Then I was caught by the British government, and they put me in the Air Force. I went to Singapore for two years—'56 to '58. I still played the trumpet, but I lent my trumpet to an officer and a gentleman who never gave it back. As a private, I had no comeback. But Singapore was a tax-free port and when you bought a packet of cigarettes they'd throw in a camera practically for free. So I got a camera.

About the quote posted, it's interesting to see how big photographer got interested about it, it seems that a lot of times it is because of the work of other great professionals.
