The photos we see in magazines of A-list celebrities and gorgeous models may look like effortless perfection, but what the Sam Faulkner 'Behind the Scenes' photography captures is less than effortless. Featuring some of the biggest names in fashion -- Claudia Schiffer, Beyonce, Gwyneth Paltrow, Karl Lagerfeld, Gisele Bundchen and more -- these shots are fascinatingly revealing of the fashion industry.
The amount of work that goes into the set-ups of these shoots, hours before the star-studded faces arrive, is what makes these shots so incredible. When the final product is revealed it doesn't include the photographer, the directors or the equipment. The test shots and complicated lighting structures that are shown in these reality-inducing photographs may de-glamourize to some extent, but are a great depiction of the true world of modelling.
