Glamour portrait my way: Translated

Rankin is a post modern fashion and glamour photographer who employ modern equipment and studio to create contemporary aesthetic pleasing images.

A high demand genre in fashion magazine photography is 'minimal photography', Rankin is a master in this discipline and produces world-leading current images for a number of top fashion and glamour magazines. Mostly Rankin would use paramount lighting for these images.

Rankin often works with facial expressions, use the portrait as a landscape, use and incorporating backdrops and shooting into the light. With these techniques he still maintains a clean and minimal look.

Some of Rankin's iconic work must be his portraits with avant garde make-up. This was a collaboration between himself and Ayami Kishimura, together they inspired photographers and make-up artists all over the world.

I also venture into the make up world and therefore enjoy this post modern portrait genre tremendously. It should also be noted that colour symbolist plays an impotent role in this field of photography.

Rankin also made shadows a major aspect of his repertoire, perhaps he also was influenced by great earlier photographers like Nadar and Skrebneski. Rankin would use shadows on the face, background shadows and interactive shadows with foreground and background.
