Michael Thompson - Photographer
Opinions and pictures.

Personnally I like his photography, I think he's in the same league as Greg Kadel or Patrick Demarchelier, because a lot of the time they seem to shoot celebrities for covers and things like that, but I like his editorial work much than the others, I feel it has a film-noir feel to it sometimes.

Twilight Zone.

He lacks a distinctive style, really, but I think he's got a great undertanding of what looks good, in any case. I loved this:

very well put jennifer, its like he interprets different photographer's styles (not to say rips-off ) to try and make it his own, specially in his work for w... i like his celebrity portraiture, its very graphic, and as you said jennifer, ultimately makes them look very good

I agree toohip - he's adaptable. He can express a lot of ideas without bringing too much of 'himself' into his work. I like to think of the role that it plays in his success as a celebrity photographer, that the subject's own persona isn't overshadowed.

^ I like that editorial. Very nice.

I disagree about him not having a distintive style, of course he doesn't have the same kind of stamp on his pictures like others, but still there's a very little something in his pictures, that I can see that it's him, of course I would easily confuse his celebrity portraits with other photographers, but maybe because it's more limited.
