Featured: Jeanloup Sieff

I was in the Leica London store and cafe yesterday in Mayfair and we got talking about past photographers.  Jimmy who works there and is a wealth of knowledge recommended I look up the late Jeanloup Sieff.  A french fashion photographer that shot mostly in black and white and with a style not so different from my taste in terms of – black and white, female models, fashion, strong lighting and compositions.

I am probably unlike many photographers in that I just shoot whatever comes into my head.  I do not know many famous photographers..perhaps ten names at an absolute maximum.  I didn’t study photography so I missed that part of my photography education by being self taught.  I am very practical in my work but I would be lost if you fired famous names at me.

Inspired by Jimmy, I got on the internet when I got home and was really impressed with Sieff’s photography.  So much so I thought I would share it here.

Attached is a link to his book review – Jeanloup Sieff – 40 years of photography

      1. Thanks Matt. The 21mm looks so damn cool and is on my list of lens for Leica M….I have the 50mm Summicron and love it, especially wide open which I’m doing more of in the style of Thorsten von Overgaard :)) Have a good wknd.
