We recently had the privilege of meeting one of the true masters of portrait photography – Mark Seliger. This resulted in five new videos, in which Seliger shares his thoughts on lighting and portrait photography.

You will find all the videos at our dedicated Mark Seliger page. There is also an opportunity to win a signed copy of one of Seliger’s much loved photo books on the page.

In our third video, Mark Seliger tells the story of how he made P Diddy look like the king of New York City for a shoot for Vanity Fair. Watch the video to hear Mark’s thoughts about it.

“A recognition of that person is 50% to the equation so knowing who that person is and then having some kind of mass appeal becomes as important as actually the photograph”, says Seliger.

Watch all videos and sign up for a chance to win a Seliger photo book here.
