No, not any real wonder. Quite a few musicians are good photographers. Andy Summers from the Police. Cesar Rosas of Los Lobos. Eric Clapton. And of course, there's the flip side of famous photographer Mark Seliger who has his own band.

Having photographed a lot of musicians, famous and not yet famous, over the last thirty years, and living with my professional musician girlfriend, I can say that there is very little difference between music and photography. The process is exactly the same. The tools are a bit different. Now it's time to get back to my guitar...

Composition, tonal interplay and execution to evoke sensory response and message communication ... yup, I can relate the two.

Almost any beginner can pick up a modern point and shoot and produce some really interesting images...I am not sure they can do the musical equivalent with any musical instrument. Maybe an iPod......

Making music and taking photographs = manipulating energy (sound and light).

I can totally relate to this as looking back on my life I've always had to have some kind of creative outlet. I was a musician for almost 20 years before I seriously got into photography.

No really a wonder.

Not really surprising – especially in the portrait photography field.

Any celebrity has a huge advantage over Joe / Jane photographer as they have access to other celebrities and usually more time to work with them than another photographer would. They are just hanging out with their friend not at an official photo shoot. The connection between the photographer and subject is already there, a celebrity doesn’t have to work too hard for it. The subjects ends up more relaxed and comfortable – more open to try things that the photographer suggests.

Remember Yu Brynner as a photographer – he shot with a range finder on movie sets and at the homes of the 1%, his subjects were all movie stars. Celebrities enjoy access that the normal person just don’t get.

The other stuff is all technical and can be learned in a matter of weeks or months with digital. At least with Mr Brynner – he mastered the technical stuff on a manual camera with film, which is a lot harder than today’s cameras with full automation plus the instant feedback loop that digital provides.

I'm glad you bumped it as I missed it from before.
Always was a fan of Yul and I didn't know this info about him.
