All the Pretty Photographers

This past fashion season I noticed how photography has become THE art of choice for all the prettiest young women of fashion.  (And of course I think Garance is the epitome of this movement.)


I won’t try to explain why this is happening, but this week all the 8 PM posts will document this trend.

    It’s so neat to see photographers dressed as chic as the models and streetstyle they are capturing.

    There´s definitely something about Garance. But I suppose you know that better than anyone else =)

    Garance is beautiful and I’ve enjoyed every shot of her. Her style is elegant, casual, and chic. Even if she wasn’t your girlfriend, I’m sure you’d feature her frequently.

    It’s because she is an outstanding style photographer and snazzy dresser that you can get away with featuring her as often as you do.

    I love this idea. I think it is because the women who are thoughtful enough to observe the aesthetics of fashion not only have an eye for color, lines, style and design but also have a genuine understanding of what is beautiful on the inside and outside.

    Alas, I’m not one of the prettiest young women of fashion; but I have been known to compose a photograph or two, and yesterday, after spending a couple of hours at the Frick Collection ( Picasso’s early Drawings the featured attraction), I crossed over to Central Park with my trusty old Olympus rangefinder. One hour later, I RAN INTO BILL CUNNINGHAM AT WORK! He was photographing the trees damaged by the snowstorm near the Park entrance at 60th street. I got one shot of him in action on b/w film and four candids with my smartphone. It was a humbling and thrilling experience.

    Garance (with her most spectacular legs) is a triple threat. Gifted photographer who really sees her subject, illustrator with a charming style uniquely her own, and a brilliantly funny and warm writer. No wonder we all love her and cheer the two of you on!

    Who makes those amazing gold shoes Garance is wearing? I’m dying for them! I’m hoping they’re Zara so they can be mine!

    Most of those girls just follow the trend. They just need a camera to do that. Just because they are pretty, it doesn’t mean that they can take good pics like the ones appearing on this website. A good camera is not enough to be a Scott or a Garance.

    Love the having your opinions included with the most recent shots!!!// Garance is undoubtedly in a league of her own.

    So only pretty young women can take part in the art of fashion photography? Glad you made that clear.

    Garance always manages to look so effortlessly chic. Is it the French trait in her, or how does she do it? Please tell me she has problems with her wardrobe every morning like all of us.

    Garance looks seriously good here. Very toned, thin and her face looks relaxed with a bit of tan. She looks like she just came back from a vacation. very nice. I love the man’s coat and gold shoes.

  23. LocalCeleb

    Garance is gorgeous and hilarious, I have visited her blog several times and she keeps me laughing.

    I love the coat and the sneakers combo. Something about it is so effortless, yet soooo chic.

    One feels safe with Garance, and your photo’s here show her natural soul and I think she just has some thing very special and a talent for fashion and photography… I hope you enjoy each other and know what a very special and unique love…

    What do you mean–are you SURPRISED that photography is the most visibly discernible art form these women are embracing? Ok, Garance is gorgeous, her photos are beautiful, and when I saw her speak at Sciences-Po, I was extremely impressed by her intelligence. BUT, at the same time, photography is the only artform that could document fashion these days–it’s not like one could whip out an easel and some paints at/outside of a runway show and do today’s need for immediacy and “accuracy” of representation any sort of justice. And of course, walking around with a camera in cities and wherever else in this fashionable world does not necessarily turn one into a photographer. I think the coolest thing, something you should perhaps explore, is the beautiful women who are attempting to create a more multimedia documentation of fashion: HINT Garance does it beautifully… Video. I think videos, compilations, the collaboration of color and form and music would be more interesting to track as a trend…especially as a feminine one.

    What a sweet post :) I have to say, it’s always the photographers who exude the most confidence…and that’s quite pretty in itself.

    Love it! Her style is great!
    Let us know about the camera of choice too!

    Well since I am a stylish girl photographer, I can only agree with your assessment! :o)

  32. Hannah

    November 1, 2011 at 1:48 am

    Nowhere in his post did he even imply that. Saying that there are many pretty women who partake in fashion photography does not suggest that it is an activity exclusively for them. Putting words into people’s mouths is childish.

  33. une chatte grise

    November 1, 2011 at 2:08 am

    You can see the intelligence in Garance’s face (see: Jane with the noisy terrier’s post), & your photos of her always seem to be conveying your respect for and admiration of her.

    @ M. Da Chump–congrats on what sounds like a wonderful experience!

    I would not say this woman was particularly pretty, if I passed her in the street I would not turn back to look at her.

    She really is one of the best (and one of the cutest!). The photo she posted just yesterday left me numb. So beautiful, so artistic, so fashionable.

    [am sure you get this a lot, but me and my girlfriends think that you are one of the greatest couples in fashion now, and one of the cutest too!)]

    Kisses from Greece!

    Taking great photographies, and choosing good “models” with excentric or stylish looks, like Garance does it, it is an art!
    That explains why photographers are also stylish!
    ce qu’on appelle “l’âme d’artiste”! Quelqu’un qui crée, recrée et sait dénicher de vrais trésors, et rendre “beau” même ce qui n’y paraît ps au premier abord. L’art de faire apparaître la beauté, même cachée^^

    I think both photography and fashion are more accessible now than they have ever been. It may be bloggers like you and Garance that inspire everyone to pick up a camera and try. It’s harder than it looks, but they are probably having fun.

    I like Garance’s gold shoes, too.

    At long last, the tees, flats and top knots we read so much about! Garance is so talented, it’s nice to see her featured.

  67. Chacoura

    It’s funny, she’s wearing her camera like a shoegazer it’s guitar.

    I like the formality of the crisp crease in the front paired with the casual tee-shirt. I enjoy her easy style.

    it upsets me that she can just fling her hair up in a bun

    Absolutely love seeing photos of Garance. Although far from stereotypically beautiful, she’s stunning in her own unique way. They say beauty comes from within and I wonder if that’s the case with Garance. She looks happy and at ease . . . . far more beautiful than perfect features. Her incredible sense of style doesn’t go wrong either! More and more photos of this incredibly stylish woman please. And then some more . . .

    Maybe because all you need to be a photographer is a nice camera (money). However, not suprised that you would lump it in with other practices that require more skills.

    Garance attempts at yoga and jogging are really paying off. Her legs look great in that bike shot. They are slim but strong. They look like they could take her anywhere and do anything.

    Garance is great ! It is the famous hermes bag on the second picture. I love also her shoes, i see them in the French Elle (Zara Store i think, she is incrudible to look for THE DETAIL) . Have a nice day.

    Heh! Well, obviously no matter how well a girl or guy dresses up, and how cool they look with a camera, they probably just can’t take a picture like Scott can. But it does inspire some of us to try and its still enjoyable to capture the beauty around us, in fashion, architecture, nature and whatever else. Maybe we can’t do it like the amazingly talented ones, but we still have fun, and maybe look good doing it. Thats plenty.

    It’s a shame, however, that almost all the cameras these pretty ladies are sporting tend to be black bulky ugly plasticky unwieldy machines. The girls look so uncomfortable holding those DSLRs that it takes away from their style and fashion, and likely quality of their photography.

    A legacy of Canon/Nikon? Perhaps.

  97. Aldo

    November 13, 2011 at 1:13 am

    lol because if you switch it to automatic its dead easy, compared to painting, composing, dancing, wtv. plus you can cary it around and look artsy without actually doing anything.

    of course there are many exceptions to this, but it is the norm. totally agree with Filippo

  98. Lafayette

    Love that lens! Oh yeah, she nice looking too. LOL
