The Masters - Photographer Iain Crawford
London based beauty photographer Iain Crawford’s portfolio is composed of some of the most beautiful images we have ever seen.
Iain's use of bright colours, beautiful models, and fantastic stop motion photography techniques in his paint splash fashion images convey movement, style and glamour—all without a stitch of clothing in sight.
Iain grew up in Africa and Malaysia, and developed a passion for photography at an early age. On moving to London, he worked as an account handler for Saatchi & Saatchi, but left to pursue his photographic career.
After spending several years living and working in New York, he is now based in London, but continues to work internationally.
Iain loves to capture images that have a strong graphic and textural quality, often searching out the graphical symmetry in chaos, while still maintaining the personality and emotion of the subject.
Iain's career has lead him to shoot campaigns for many of the world’s top brands, and receive commissions from a host of top international magazines.
Commenting on the ‘paint’ shoot, Iain says: ”I love the fusion between paint and model. The resulting shapes are as opulent as any piece of bespoke couture. The excitement and anticipation as we waited to see the next piece of unpredictable chaos was electric. There was something magical about how random chance materialised into beautiful images in front of our eyes.”
He employs bold make-up, vivid paint and even tossed powders to get these splashtastic effects. These images are just a small part of Iain Crawford’s vast and wonderful photographic works.
