I have to admit that I love browsing through celebrity portraits and there's something about Jake Chessum's work that is particularly eye-catching. Instead of focusing on the celebrity, this England-born, New York-based photographer focuses on the image as a whole.

Although known for his celebrity portraits, Jake Chessum has also done work for Nike, Adidas, IBM, Reebok, Mercedes and Sony among others. Check out the gallery above to fully appreciate his work. Stats for Candid Icon Photography Trending: Older & Chilly
