Here’s a short 2-minute behind-the-scenes video showing how Getty’s Chief Entertainment Photographer Larry Busacca shot celebrity portraits at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. Busacca had to shoot all the portraits in the same tiny, green-walled tent studio, so he had to get creative with posing to shoot unique portraits of the actors.
The speed at which Busacca had to operate was ridiculous. Tasked with shooting thousands of portraits over the course of five days, Busacca would typically have only 10 minutes with each cast (generally 6 or 7 people) for solo, group, and pairing portraits. The goal was to do it “fast enough and in a way that looks like it took an hour,” he says.
Here are some of the portraits that resulted:
Ana de Armas, Keanu Reeves and Lorenza Izzo
Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts
Emile Hirsch, Hailee Steinfeld, Ethan Hawke and Avan Jogia
Anders Holm, Kris Swanberg, Cobie Smulders, Chris Webber and Gail Bean
Forest Whitaker and Chloe Zhao
You can find the entire set of 2,561 portraits over on Getty.
