Portraits of People Photographed by Scott Schuman, The Sartorialist

Since its inception in 2005, street fashion photography blog The Sartorialist has become something of a bellwether in the fashion industry, turning photographer Scott Schuman into a kingmaker that can give ordinary fashionable folk 15 minutes of intense Internet fame by spotting them, shooting their photo, and publishing it to his blog.

Schuman recently hosted a party attended by many of the subjects seen in his posed street portraits. He took the opportunity to produce this beautiful short video that captures a followup-up portrait of a number of them.

The subjects talk about their experience in meeting and being photographed by Schuman, and the impact of his photography.


We’ve featured a number of short films in the past that show how Schuman works when he roams the streets of major fashion hubs in search of eye-catching styles. If you’re interested at all in the fusion of fashion photography and street photography, be sure to check out those videos as well.
