It is nice to see him. I like his work. I have the magazine with the Diana photo shoot.
March 4, 2009 at 5:58 pm
I too am a big fan of Mario’s–great photo!
March 4, 2009 at 6:04 pm
He is as beautiful as his work.

Like many others I’m a fan of Mr. Testino. This is a great photo of him!
March 4, 2009 at 6:16 pm
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!

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.
March 4, 2009 at 7:37 pm
Testino!! I love his work! Is one og my fav’s!
March 4, 2009 at 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.

I’d like to wear a smile like that one! greetings from Lima, Peru!.- kada

March 4, 2009 at 9:56 pm

P.S.: Let the Prèt-à-Porter start!!!

Mario is fabulous! Like you I’m fond of his photography.
March 4, 2009 at 11:01 pm
As a fellow photographer, I’m starstruck just looking at the photo! :p

A pro’s pro.
You could definitely do worse for inspiration.
Great jacket….even greater smile.

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.
March 5, 2009 at 3:25 am
i love Mario! as they said he is ALWAYS smiling! amazing photographer!and ofcourse we love u too :D
Kisses from Jordan!
March 5, 2009 at 4:19 am
Belstaff, I think, but it’s the winning smile that nails the look.
March 5, 2009 at 4:42 am
One of my favorites! His use of light is an inspiration in my own work.
March 5, 2009 at 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!
March 5, 2009 at 5:28 am
god!! i’m so jealous – to see Mario Testino and get a picture of him??? not only HE IS the best photographer but so handsome as well.
March 5, 2009 at 5:40 am
I was expecing to see a camera in his hand. :)
March 5, 2009 at 5:45 am
I LOOOOOOOVVVVVE MARIO TESTINO’S WORK.ITS A SHAME HIS PHOTOGRAPHS ARE SOLD ALL TOGETHER IN A BOOK AS IT DISTRACTS FROM THEIR EXTRAORDINARY BEAUTY….IN MY NEXT LIFE, I WANT TO BE BORN IN LIMA !!
March 5, 2009 at 6:13 am
I think the jacket may be Nick Ashley vintage, so edited, so new functional
March 5, 2009 at 6:14 am
He is always looking so positive and smile.And he is looking neatly.
March 5, 2009 at 6:42 am

March 10, 2009 at 5:47 pm

March 10, 2009 at 8:48 pm
he has such a lovely, open face and easy style.
March 11, 2009 at 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!
April 11, 2009 at 2:33 pm
Chris, Scott IS doing a book !

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