On the Street......Mario Testino, Milano

Mario is one of the photographers that I have always looked to for inspiration. I have often referred to his book, Portraits, for concepts of lighting and angles - but I love that he also publishes his snaps of people that he meets at parties, fashion shows or at the beach.

Mario Testino is really a great photographer. Where does he publishe "his snaps of people that he meets at parties"? In a blog? Magazines? Please give me the name!!!


Blogger john benjamin pritchett said ... (6:13 PM) : 

Like many others I'm a fan of Mr. Testino. This is a great photo of him!

I studied his work in my photography class for a "personal inspirational" assignment. I LOVE all of his work, especially his pieces on Princess Diana, Meg Ryan, and almost all of his Kate Moss pieces. I can't believe you just saw him walking on the streets! That's incredible!


Anonymous CK Dexter Haven said ... (6:26 PM) : 

I've never met him. I've never seen him in person. But, he always seems like 'the right kind of dude.' To be a star in the prima donna world of fashion photography, and to always present yourself the way he does - well, that's somethin'.

I just wish he would publish MORE books....

So effortless and relaxed. Great photo. Great man.

That jacket he's wearing looks like a Millerain fabric. Very nice.


Blogger Pepa Xavier said ... (7:37 PM) :

Blogger indigo warrior said ... (7:41 PM) : 

He has a very nice happy confidence. He's not trying so hard, but he still looks like he made an effort to look nice.

You could definitely do worse for inspiration.

Great jacket....even greater smile.

A true artist certainly... he has a great natural look, relaxed and effortless just like his photographs


Blogger The Man Who Knew Too Much said ... (2:35 AM) : 

This is how Marshall from 'How I Met Your Mother' will look like when he is older. Although I am not sure if he would look that stylish as this gentleman.


Blogger Styloholic! said ... (3:25 AM) :

and ofcourse we love u too :D

Kisses from Jordan!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:19 AM) : 

Belstaff, I think, but it's the winning smile that nails the look.


Anonymous LettertoJane said ... (4:42 AM) : 

One of my favorites! His use of light is an inspiration in my own work.


Anonymous Tropicalia said ... (5:16 AM) : 

He's certainly in my "The-best-of-all-times list".

I only wish he featured all his amazing oeuvre on his website...

Thanks, Scott, for bringing him in!

Great look, beautiful smile.
You should check out his book "Lima, Peru" is really good.



Blogger wibeseeker said ... (5:47 PM) : 

he's 54 - he looks amazing!


Anonymous kate said ... (8:48 PM) : 

he has such a lovely, open face and easy style.


Blogger Chris Johnson said ... (4:00 PM) : 

If you're looking for a book of Testino's hot party pics, check out "Let Me In!" I am really, really happy to see him on this blog!

Scott, YOU should do a book! Like a big oversize coffee table book with HUGE pages!

I came to your gallery exhibition in Washington, DC the night you were there - my friend Fatha Julz gave you a CD of his music - and the only thing I wanted (besides air conditioning!) was to be able to view BIG versions of your photos!! There's so much detail for us to study in your images!


Blogger Rollergirl said ... (2:33 PM) : 

Chris, Scott IS doing a book !


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:30 PM) :

If you want to look better than you actually do, get Mario Testino to photograph you.
