Spotlight on Emily Shur

I have always been a huge fan of Emily Shur’s work, so when I got an assignment to have Elon Musk photographed I called her right away.. I mean, if anyone can handle Mr. Musk its Ms. Shur, right? She nailed it, of course. A lot of times I’ll have someone on my list that I really, really, want to work with but I think they deserve more than a simple portrait with a simple guy in a bad cubicle. I know they can handle those, make them interesting, work with the lighting, get the best angle — but I like to save my favorites, my idolkind, for the features. Getting her shoot in was like, ok, amazing, you did it, it couldn’t get better, he couldn’t look better. If only it could always be so good..

Anyway, y’all probably know her work but how much fun is it to look at it once again, she’s fucking awesome. So.. a few here and then see the rest here.
