Martin Schoeller is a (mainly) celebrity photographer who focuses primarily on portraits. He is best known for his uniqueness and for his work turning formal portraits into environmental, using the models personality as a base for the photo’s theme. He is also very well known for a project he did titled “Identical: Portraits of Twins”, where he compared photos of identical twins, featuring a few who were separated at birth to show a nature vs. nurture.
Martin Schoeller stumbled onto his photography career on accident, randomly applying to a photo school in Berlin, Germany, where he’s from. From there, he realized that close up photos and portraits were the photos that he responded to best. Martin now takes photos for many platforms such as Vanity Fair, Vogue, and National Geographic.
