Erik Asla is a norwegian photographer living in LA. He started working as photo assistant to celebrated photographer Herb Ritts. That became his breakthrough, together they took pictures of people like Bill Clinton, Madonna and Brad Pitt. When Ritts died in 2002, Erik started on his own career. He now works with Hollywood stars such as Gwyneth Paltrow and he does fashion and beauty campaigns. In addition to advertising and commercial work, his editorial images have been published in American and international magazines such as ELLE, Costume, Marie-Claire, Vogue, The New York Times Magazine and Vanity Fair.
These are the photos picked as my favorites. I really like his beauty pictures, they are gorgeous. The way he captures the models eyes, makes you just wanna know their story. Its like there’s a history in the pictures.
