tyler_shields_front_coultique
Seine Bilder faszinieren, schockieren. Provokation heißt für Tyler Shields seine bekannten Models, die meist große Schauspielerinnen sind, an ihre Grenzen zu bringen. So geht es ihm nicht um die Berühmtheit der Darsteller, sondern viel mehr um die erweiterten Möglichkeiten, sie spielen ihre Rolle und verstehen es in Szenen perfekt zu agieren.

Der amerikanische Fotograf Tyler Shields, geb. 29. 04.1982 lebt in Los Angeles. Er gehört zu den besten und außergewöhnlichsten seiner Branche. Er ist auch Filmdirektor und Autor, sein erster Spielfilm „Final Girl“ kommt im April nächsten Jahres in die Kinos.

Elle:
What are some of your secret to getting such sexy and provocative shots?

Tyler Shields:

I don’t make anyone do anything I allow them to do what they already want to do. The single biggest thing you have to have if you want people to be provocative is trust they have to trust that you have their best interest at heart not your own.

Elle:
How do you keep yourself motivated and your photography creative, inspiring and fresh?

Tyler Shields:

I always want to better myself keep learning try new things and challenge myself. Honestly galleries really push me when you work on a series for a year and you debut it in a gallery and it sells out its a very surreal feeling it just makes you want to keep going more and more to be the best you can be.
