It has almost been 20 years since Beyoncé’s iconic song Crazy in Love and Dangerously in Love Album came out.
Documenting some of the most recognizable moments in pop-culture is an international fashion/celebrity photographer Markus Klinko who was the face behind the camera of Beyonce’s Dangerously in Love cover as well as shoots with Kim Kardashian, JLo, Britney Spears & David Bowie.
Alongside The Weeknd, Christina Aguilera and Tom Cruise, Beyoncé is one of Markus‘ most prestigious collectors!
Markus shares his fascinating behind the scenes story of his shoots with Beyoncé. He also has a new project coming out in collaboration with Erchonia, “The Angel Factory.”
The Hollywood Times had the pleasure of speaking with Markus about his photography career. Enjoy our conversation:
Klinko has photographed Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, David Bowie, Jennifer Lopez, Britney Spears, Mary J. Blige, Mariah Carey, Kanye West, Anne Hathaway, Kate Winslet, Will Smith, Eva Mendes, Kim Kardashian, Naomi Campbell, Daphne Guinness and Iman. His editorial clients include Vogue, GQ, Vanity Fair, Harper’s Bazaar, and Interview magazine. Brands such as Lancôme, L’Oréal Paris, Nike, Hugo Boss, Anna Sui, Pepsi, Skyy Vodka, and Remy Martin have hired Klinko to create advertising campaigns. His campaign for Keep A Child Alive raised over one million dollars for children with AIDS in just a few days. (Wikipedia)
