Lorenzo Agius, international celebrity photographer began his career in Great Britain 20 years ago. Early on, he garnered “rock star” recognition with his striking images of Ewan McGregor and the cast for the influential and inspiring film “Trainspotting”.Lorenzo’s calm personality, seduces his subjects and allows them to visually express their emotions which can range from serious to comical. Each image of each celebrity, some done in different moments in time, express the celebrities changing physical and personality traits, as illustrated in the images of Jack Nicholson, Tom Cruise, Madonna, Helen Hunt, Samuel L Jackson, Will Smith and others.

His at ease personality, captures the essence of their emotions with his adept use of subject position, light, camera and lens, each working in unison to produce a work of photographic art. The viewer feels drawn into the subject and setting, imagining as Agius once did, “I can’t believe I am here.”

In addition to the world’s most famous celebrities, his corporate client list that includes: 20th Century Fox, Warner Bros, ELLE, EMI, Esquire, Essence, GQ, Gieves & Hawkes, Glamour, Graff, Harper’s Bazaar, HBO, Vanity Fair, Marks & Spencer, Lionsgate, Sony Pictures, Town & Country, Universal Pictures.
