GL Woods

Photographer GL Woods began shooting fashion seven years ago. Interestingly, his goal is not to land higher profile clients but to gain the trust of clients who will let him create the graphic, mixed-media work he has enjoyed since he studied art.

He says, "The whole point is to get your voice out there and not be a hired gun." His unique collages, cutouts and manipulated images were not immediately accepted as suitable for high fashion, but by paying careful attention to how he presented his work, he was able to begin to win over editors.

His fashion clients now include Vogue Mexico/Latin America,  Elle Mexico, W, T: The New York Times Style Magazine, Agent Provocateur, Converse and other brands.

Graphic design has always inspired his work, along with photographer like Jean-Paul Goude. This is evident in his creative images shown below

I found Woods's story and work to be particularly interesting because of my combined interests in photography, graphic design and fashion.
