Miles Aldridge (b.1964)
Aldridge studied at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, making music videos and working as an illustrator before becoming a photographer. He begins the process of creating a fashion picture by drawing his ideas. He remains one of the few fashion photographers shooting predominantly on film, but uses digital post-production techniques for highly polished results.
