“Unless I enjoy this person that I am photographing, my life can be pretty boring if I treat them just like a blank canvas. I often try to bring out the girl. I am making them more important than the lighting, the concept, the idea.” – Mario Testino

Some people say an image is worth a thousand words and for him these boundaries are real. Models are always posing for brands but their main goal is to capture the public with the power of a click. Bringing out the person from the portrait and letting their personalities flow into the real world is his main task. Representing feelings and characters, his works can easily let your skin with chills. We’re talking about Mario Testino, a renowned fashion photographer.

The personal style of his photography is the brand that covers the fashion clicks around the world. The framework of Testino is Gucci, Michael Kors, Valentino and Estee Lauder but there are many other famous names in his duets’ portfolio, like Vivienne Westwood. For a man of highlights, it’s curious to notice that the first years in London were a challenge and he even ask his bank for a loan to buy lights. His passion was deep in his veins and the goal of his life was never an impossible world. The light inside was like an eternal flash into his moves. Models used to say that the personal level is always achieved with the relaxing but intensive way of Testino’s work.

It’s time to let the glamour and the everyday life enters your room, behind the lenses of a genius.
