Alasdair McLellan

Alasdair McLellan had a shoot in British Vogue this month, and I was immediately struck by his pictures and began searching the internet to find more of his work. What's so lovely about all his photos is that he uses contrasting light and shadow in really interesting ways, such as in the leaf photo below; he doesn't just use the models as clothes horses, but really lets their individuality and character shine through; and somehow, maybe using a combination of both these techniques, he manages to create an atmosphere that makes you feel as if you're there in the picture too. Plus he has done lots of shoot with Lara Stone, a model I've loved since I first saw her in Vogue a few years ago. But more on her later.
