Forsberg used to be a model, already designed clothes for Madewell and shot some of your favourite models for his magazine Transmission- not to mention he’s close friends with model/ muse Hanne Gaby and Kasia Struss. He’s known for making raw images of models in their natural state, usually make up free and in their birthday suit.

Amsterdam based photographer Sassen is the genius behind Carven’s recent F/W 13 campaign. Her soft photographs are compelling and are an absolute dream. She’s also shot for I-D magazine, Numéro, Miu Miu and the list goes on.

Tim Barber has an upbeat approach in his photographs so we weren’t surprised to find out that he’s been previously commissioned by Nastygal and Urban Outfitters (he shot six catalogues for UO). Also, he was previously a photo editor at Vice Magazine and is the founder of TinyVices.

4. Valerie Phillips

Phillips takes pride in shooting girls that aren’t skinny or pretty, rather she’s interested in models with a strong personality or some attitude. Perhaps that’s why she’s been commissioned to shoot for brands like Stussy, and magazines like Nylon.

5. Henrik Purienne

Writers at C-Heads Magazine sums up Purienne’s photo aesthetics in one quote: “Purienne- Very 70s Playboy meets 80s National Geographic.” He is also the founder and editor of Mirage Magazine and thinks “secretly being really poor or really rich” is sexy.
