Veteren fashion photographer Bruno Dayan has a knowing worldliness to his sumptuous work, referencing and honouring the venus of every time and generation. He doesn't linger on the akward teenage model instead choosing to make the siren's melody heard throughout his work regardless of setting. Working worldwide, based in Paris, he is versatile and delivers a satisfying luxury in all his images.
Elle Muliarchyk had already made her name as a model when her irreverent streak bubbled to the surface and she began sneaking into the dressing rooms of posh boutiques and snapping portraits of herself decked out in lavish couture. With brains and beauty, Elle has gone from glamourous strength to strength creating conceptual pieces (often featuring herself as subject) that walk the art-fashion line, successfully at that. Definitely one to keep watching.Representation: http://www.managementartists.com/
Andrew Yee is one of those rare talents in fashion photography who has the ability to place equal celebration on the fashion, concept and model at the same time...is there nothing this man can't shoot and make fabulous and interesting!? His work is always a celebration of colour, contrast and form. I simply can't get enough of it. Whilst no where near as well known as the big names and competitors in fashion photography stakes, he should be, his work delivers on so many levels and continues to surprise each time.

Knight's first book of photographs, 'Skinheads', was published in 1982, whilst a student at Bournemouth. He was then commissioned by i-D editor Terry Jones to create a series of 100 portraits for the magazine's fifth anniversary issue. As a result of those black-and-white portraits, his work caught the attention of art director Marc Ascoli, who commissioned Knight to shoot the 1986 catalogue of avant-garde Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto in collaboration with renowned graphic designer Peter Saville. Since this first foray into fashion photography, he has shot both editorial and advertising projects for clients including Alexander McQueen, Audi, Calvin Klein, Christian Dior, Shiatzy Chen, Jil Sander, Lancôme, Levi Strauss, Martine Sitbon,Mercedes-Benz, Royal Ballet, Royal Opera House, Swarovski and Yves Saint Laurent.
Nick Knight directed back in 2001 his first music video ever, the controversial Pagan Poetry video, for avant-pop star Björk. In 2011 he directed the video for Lady Gaga's single "Born This Way". Care of wikipedia.
