Gavin Bond is one of the most sought-after celebrity photographers in the world. His intoxicating mix of sex, sophistication and smiles combined with contemporary sass and good ol’ Hollywood glamour is an irresistible cocktail of uniquely conceptual ideas and memorable personality driven shots.
The magic comes from Bond’s special way of connecting with his subjects. From Jennifer Aniston, Jack Black, Jessica Alba, George Clooney, U2, Eva Mendes, The Killers to Rihanna, Sasha Baron Cohen, Kings of Leon, ACDC and Muse among many others his celebrity clients willingly become an active partner in his process. Bond’s innate ability to create an immediate air of intimacy along with his keen eye and whimsical imagination always amounts to Bond getting exactly what he needs for his image, whether it is a captured revelation of true character, an exaggerated version of celebrity selves or the flip side to a public persona.
