Photographer/Designer Research : Terry Richardson

Terry Richardson is an American portrait photographer that is highly praised for his work. The photographer has done work with a numerous amount of well known celebrities (Rihanna, Kendrick Lamar, Frank Ocean, Tyler, the Creator and Barack Obama), for a number of well known magazines (i-D, Vibe, GQ, Rolling Stone and Vogue).
Richardson is well known for using a white background to photograph the subject of his work which looks professional and attractive while gaining the attention on the subject. some of his work is released in black and white which in my opinion looks good and appealing also.  The photographer is also well know for releasing provocative themed portraits of many celebrity shoots including ones with Rihanna and Kate Upton. however this is not always the case.
The style in which the shots Richardson takes are appealing and could suit my style of magazine. however, I believe that there could be other styles that are much more focused on what I want to achieve with Renegade.

Here are some examples of his work:
