From Retro Hollywood Housewife Shoots to Lounging Jewelry Ads

These Lachlan Bailey editorials provide a highly saturated and entirely fresh take on the portrayal of celebrities and models. The New York-based photographer has collaborated with the likes of Pop Magazine, Spanish Vogue and Dazed & Confused, all with acute attention to detail.

Bailey's distinct take on lighting and color schemes stems from his academic study of film and photography while in Melbourne. His climb up the industry ladder eventually brought about his retro housewife shoots and lounging jewelry ads, representing the critically acclaimed haute couture brands of DKNY, BCBG and Burberry.

Bailey's ability to zigzag between the editorial and advertisement realms is one that sets him apart from the majority of photographers who frequently specialize in one particular art form. This sense of versatility has been essential to his career.
