Tom Ford


There are few people that impress me as much as Tom Ford. The man is a design genius. At 30 he took over Gucci when it was on the serious decline and not only designed the fashion lines but also the advertising and even the stores!  I posted this video about him because A. I feel it is so important to study talented people outside your profession, (Like photography)  and B. Because even he says in this video that he feels his success has come from his work ethic! (NOT AMAZING NATURAL TALENT, which he has)

“My creative drive is an obsession, perfectionism is almost an illness with me….you can only control so much you just have to let go, you’re not really in control of anything, of life, the older I get I learn that”

“Do things first and then talk about them”

Ford remains on my top 20 people to photograph their portrait.
