Hey Brendan, that link to the Tumblr is broken. Not that I wanted to see trannies errr... uhhh... anything...

But seriously. The sad part is the amazing talent out there, from 16 year old photogs to Nat Geo guys. And this guy is paid almost 30 million more than others.

He sells himself. I gotta' give him that.

Pretty much it. Terry Richardson is just the high paid result of marketing that style. Nothing technical about it, but it's not why he's famous. He's a brand. An image. Just like Louis Vuitton, Armani, or any high end brand. He's just profiting off of image he got tagged with.

His perv behavior is just part of him, and further creates his own style and uniqueness. Anyone who complains that he's whipping his dick out is clearly ignorant of his behavior and shouldn't bother with him. It's like renting a **** and being mad that people are having sex in the movie.

Any photographers who bashes him for how "easy" his photography are missing the point and probably gonna miss out what it means to be successful in photography. Creating a brand or image that sells. You might need the skill to back that up, or some luck with the right people (in Terry's case). In the end, you're only worth what you've decided to sell at.

You can't blame him for what he's doing monetarily right?

He's still a douchebag :-p

But that would be silly, it would make sense monetarily, but in a field that is supposedly about art or technicality?
