Philip Gay seems to be the master tightrope artist with regards to photography: He is able to balance the fine line that separates raw, candid moments and perfectly posed photo shoots. By honing this skill, Gay has put together an impressive photography portfolio that contains shades of Terry Richardson's aesthetic without completely going down that worn-out road.

Philip Gay not only dabbles in the fashion industry; he also has done ad campaigns. Gay's clients include publications such as Vogue, Purple, i-D and Zoo as well as brands like Levi's and Garnier.

Philip Gay has also worked with such famous (and infamous) faces as Jarvis Cocker, MGMT, Bat For Lashes and Sean Lennon. Stats for Raw Hipster Photography Trending: Older & Buzzing
