The way to a career in photography looks like it's different for everybody. Some photographers see their endpoint in the first place, although some seem to get into their work with no preconceived notions about where it will take them.

Commercial craft photographer David LaChapelle discovered photography in senior high school and never stopped creating his unique images. Take a look inside this brilliant photographer’s mind and his awesome studio while he shares the tale behind his success:

LaChapelle says that photography, for him, was not ever intended to be a source of fame or fortune. He simply planned to create beauty and honesty. At the chronilogical age of 18, his love of nightclubs brought him to New York City, where he’s spent high of his teen years you should definitely in school. Soon after, he'd his first photography show in the friend’s loft. These first images were monochrome and exhibited his experimentation with bleaching on prints, metaphysical themes, and nude figuratives. He had his second show immediately after, and after that began taking assignments.


Those first assignments were exciting. He was meeting interesting people and being published in magazines. He took the very first published photograph with the Beastie Boys and also the last portrait of Andy Warhol prior to the artist’s death.

David LaChapelle’s more current work is a feast for the eyes. He photographs celebrities on highly saturated, surreal sets that he builds and reuses in the Los Angeles studio. He strives for his photos to have the same impact on his audiences as music sports listeners. He desires to engage and connect along with his viewers through his art so that it stays with them.



LaChapelle says his career may be an unplanned journey. The key to his success was to be true to himself by producing images which he found beautiful.

“I never planned to create more confusion or darkness or ugly things.”
