Renowned Soul Musician Seal On Portrait Photography and Emotional Connection

Musicians, and all creative types really, often cross over into other creative endeavors that may or may not have anything to do with the field they’re famous for. It was only a few weeks ago that we featured a video of musician Moby talking about how much he loved photographing LA architecture. And today Leica has put together another of their “Leica Portraits,” this one on soul musician — and, of course, photography enthusiast — Seal.

The video does have the necessary Leica plug (around 2:30) but besides that everything that Seal talks about — from trading photo time for play time with his daughter, to the emotional connection he feels is necessary for great street and portrait photography — is interesting and relevant to anybody who loves the art of picture taking.

    Since he was married to Heidi Klum, I would hope that he occasionally fooled around with a camera.

    lol “owning a Leica tells a lot about the person”….It sure does.  Fanboy with too much money?

    “If person owns this, he /she is this and that”. GOSH.

    Some lovely shots there. I disagree with his Leica comments though. I shoot with Pentax and it doesn’t mean I love photography any less.
