Today we have Blayne who is the author of two fabulous blogs This Photographers Life, where she features fabulous architecture and Blayne's One Thing. Without further ado.

This Photographers Life
Fashion Photography as Art I am so excited to be moonlighting here at Chic Modern Vintage! Tonia, Thank you so much for having me. Do you guys watch Work of Art on Bravo? This past week was the finale, and the guest judge was photographer David LaChapelle. When introducing him they said he, more than any other photographer had blurred the lines between fashion and fine art photography. What an interesting concept and one I have explored in my own artwork. I went to David's website to explores some of his work.

I love the stories you could make up about this piece. These pieces definitely stand on their own as fine art, but would also work in any fashion spread. I am a fine art/ architectural photographer in Atlanta, GA, and Sunday morning I delivered a new piece to a client's home.

The client said she was going to frame the piece and hang it in her terrace level. It got me to thinking about how closely this resembles fashion photography and how blurred the lines have become.

If you are interested in this subject, I recommend watching the documentary The September Issue, which shows the editors at Vogue putting together their September Issue. there are some great scenes of them photographing fashion spreads. The results are amazing, and definitely qualify as fine art. Thank you so much for letting me spotlight on such an inspirational blog! It has been an honor.


  1. Blayne, this has been great, I definitely will check out that documentary, but mostly I wish to say you are so great at what you do, and I always look forward to seeing what you are doing next!

  2. Oh my! I love the photography! My favorite is Cameron Diaz (I think?) peeking into the bathroom! Oh and Andre 3000 in the "big Foot" boots! Now, that is a fine piece of art!

    Tonia thanks for having Blayne over. I love her work and that she lives in Atlanta! Hopefully I'll have the chance to meet her soon!

  3. David LaChapelle is such an interesting artist - I REALLY love his work. He has a great book of a lot of his pieces, you should check it out!

  4. I like the one with the Backstreet Boys, I imagine it's how they feel. Cool topic!

  5. These are all such absolutely fabulous photos! What an imagination! What a creative mind!

    I love the 'Alice in Wonderland' inspired castle image! My goodness it is fabulous!

  6. Thanks so much for letting me do a guest post!! I'm glad everyone enjoyed it!

  7. Andre 3000 is the man. I was so amped about his clothing line. I even named my dog after it. Sad his clothes were waaaayyy overpriced.
