Celebrity Photographers – a Quick Round Up

Most popular for their roles in movies, on TV or behind an instrument, there are plenty of well known celebs out there that love photography too. I will post more as I find them but here’s a quick round up of my favourites so far.

Richard Gere

Probably known by most for playing the rich guy who changed Julia Roberts’ life around in Pretty Woman, and not forgetting one of my favourite films, Primal Fear – where he plays a hot shot lawyer that gets fooled by Edward Norton on a murder trial involving a priest. Richard Gere is also big into his photography, is quite the humanitarian, and also a follower of Buddhism.

Richard didn’t plan on showing his photos to the world at all until he was convinced otherwise by a book and exhibition designer, and I’m very happy she managed to change his mind – his shots are gorgeous.

Leonard Nimoy

Another actor that a lot of people will know, mostly known for playing Spock in Star Trek. Leonard is an avid photographer who does a lot of nude photography including his project around big women called The Full Body Project (NSFW) but also some landscapes, portraiture & architecture found here.

Helena Christensen

The former Victoria Secret Angel & beauty queen takes photos that are as gorgeous as her. Most famously taking photos in Peru, where her Mum is from.
