Tori Amos III by Staged Tori Amos III by Staged
Tori Amos has long been one of my biggest heroes. Her music has always been a source of inspiration for my photography.

Last Wednesday I had the honour of getting her in front of my (non-existent) lens.

She wore a wonderful blue dress.


Edit: Slightly brighter version.

Vienna, May 2009

I had to re-read, twice.

:faint:

That's quite a privileged shot.

Huge congratulations.

Will you receive, or have you already, any feedback from Tori?

:thumbsup:

can't stop looking at it... it captures her personality so well. and i can't imagine how would this one look like if it would be taken with digital camera; pinhole seems to be perfect here :)

Gorgeous photographs of one of my favourite artists, too. The pinhole really suits her as an artist and personality I think. Props for the guts for taking such an approach, these turned out so lovely! :heart:

She does live in Cornwall. Why?

Oh ok, I just assumed the interview was in Austria.. at her home. I'm confused, ignore me :)

No, the interview was in Austria. She travelled here to promote the album. The picture was taken in a hotel.

Ah ok.

I'd loooove to make some portraits of Tori Amos. And although a brave choice, I think your approach was somehow right for her :)

Im also a huge fan of hers so I am so jealous, it musta been (cool)weird getting to meet and spend time with such an amazing person as Tori.

Absolutely cool, not weird at all. I also interviewed her before the shoot and it was great. She's a very relaxed person and easy to talk and work with.

She's touring the US and Europe very soon, I think she's going to the UK in autumn, so it shouldn't be a problem really...

Staged Featured By Owner May 12, 2009
Yeah, I thought so too. Esp. after the long conversation I've had with her before we took the shot. She just posed, I didn't really have to give her a lot of input. She's just such an amazing woman.
