Set to be published on the 20th May, the photographer’s new book will feature some of his most famous images.
From Alfred Hitchcock to Kate Moss, Albert Watson has photographed some of the most well-known figures in modern life during his fifty year career.
Now, he is releasing a brand new book that will feature a selection of these famous photographs alongside lessons including technical advice, inspiration, creativity and how to get into the industry.
Offering guidance as well as stories from his career, Albert Watson’s new book features many of his best known pieces of work including portraits of Andy Warhol, Mike Tyson and Mick Jagger to capture his artistic style.
Creating Photographs is a guide for any aspiring photographer and anyone who has an enthusiasm for photography.
Since beginning his career in the 1970’s, Watson has blended art, fashion and commercial photography to create some of the most iconic images that not only include portraits of celebrities but also still life and landscapes.
Throughout his career, he has also been acknowledged highly for his work in photography, winning a Lucie Award, a Grammy Award, three Andys, a Der Steiger Award, a Hasselblad Masters Award; and the Centenary Medal, a lifetime achievement award from the Royal Photographic Society. In 2015 he was honoured by the Queen, having been awarded an OBE for his lifetime contribution to the art of photography.
