Tom Ford the Photographer | Shooting His Own S/S 09 Ad Campaign
After seeing the first image from the S/S 09 Ad campaign, we now learn that Tom Ford actually shot it him self.
“I have taken pictures for years, but recently have become more serious about it and have started shooting portraits,” said Ford to wwd. “I have always felt that an advertising image is in a sense the last layer of the design, and so decided this season to just shoot the campaign myself.“
Besides Jon Kortajarena (seen above), the campaign will also include model Karen Elson.
“Fashion advertising lately has become very complex in terms of production, and I think that often, in these dense, heavily art directed campaigns, that the clothes seem to get lost a bit,” Ford added. “I wanted to create clean, straightforward shots of a handsome man in beautifully cut clothes. Simple, clear, and fresh.”
Ford is also busy finishing his first film “A Single Man”.
