Fresh Celebrity Portraiture – Alexi Lubomirski (15 pics)

We’ve profiled a lot of celebrity and fashion photographers here on theMET but we’ve never seen such fresh photos as these by Alexi Lubomirski. If you’re a fan of Mario Testino you will no doubt see some of his influence in Alexi’s work. Working under Mario as his assistant for four years, Alexi honed his talent until he decided to strike out on his own. His amazing portfolio includes stunning images from breathtakingly beauties like Cate Blanchett, Gwen Stefani, Julia Roberts and Jennifer Aniston.

Alexi was born in England to a Peruvian mother and a Polish father. At the age of eight, he moved to Botswana with his mother and English stepfather. It was his stepfather who gave him his first camera at the age of 11. His serious interest in photography developed whilst traveling in Peru during a gap year at college. His interest later shifted from social commentary to narrative based/fashion photography whilst studying his degree at the University of Brighton, in the UK. Alexi Lubomirski
