Bravo Going Behind the Scenes With Superstar Photographers

The high stress, high art, high friction, high ego world of A-list celebrity photographers gets the docu-reality treatment in Bravo’s June 15-debuting “Double Exposure” – which follows the work of photographers (and former couple) Markus Klinko and Indrani.   The team has worked with such famous personalities as Beyonce, Kate Winslet, Lady Gaga, Will Smith and Lindsay Lohan.  As the show reveals, they have plenty of personality themselves.

Former model Indrani tells us no two shoots are alike.  “Some will come in with very strong visions.  David Bowie told us he’d been following our work from the very beginning and he loved what we did, which we found very exciting.  He asked us to do things we’d never done before, working in black and white with old school style photography solarization.  Others time people come in and they’re very open, ready for a total change of their image.  It really depends.  Sometimes the collaborative process is really fighting for ideas.”

“Double Exposure,” she says, “is our idea, because for many years, people have told us we should have a TV show.  We’re crazy and hysterical and there’s a lot of drama on our shoots,” she admist.  “It’s because our work is our lives and we’re very passionate about it.”  It’s also because “photo shoots are often where people feel the most vulnerable.”  The stars, she adds, “are just as insecure as you or me or anyone about having their photo taken.”

IT PAYS TO BE RICH AND FAMOUS:  News that Charlie Sheen is likely to wind up serving half of a 30-day sentence – sans probation – in his plea bargain deal in the Christmas day domestic violence case involving his wife, Brooke Mueller, would be unsettling enough on its own.  Has anyone taken a look at his prior record?  But to have it be in the pattycake Pitkin County Jail?  The notoriously cushy spot, where Claudine Longet served her 30-day sentence for misdemeanor negligent homicide in the shooting of skier Spider Sabich back in the ‘70s, is outfitted with homey comforts from plants and TVs to coed areas where inmates can mingle freely.  Not much tougher than the luxury rehab facility Sheen visited earlier this year as a “preventative” measure.

A NEW STAGE:  Fred Willard says he doesn’t know yet whether he’ll be called upon to return to his role as Ty Burrell’s dad on “Modern Family.”  He’s certainly not waiting around to find out.  Willard has his family on a European vacation. When they get back, “someone is talking to me about a stage show on Broadway.  I’m not sure about that.  I have to find out more,” he says.  “I’ve been wanting to do more theater.  We’ll see if this is the time.”

About Stacy Jenel Smith

I grew up in the San Fernando Valley when it was a kids' Shangri La in the 60s and we had Fabulous Eddie's miniature golf and trampolines on Ventura Boulevard. My big brother frequented The Third Eye psychedelic shop back in the day, but he wound up turning out anyway. Dad was an NBC video man who worked on "Laugh-In," Dean Martin's show, and specials by everyone from Sinatra to Fred Astaire. Mom was a first class home maker and PTA and GCA volunteer. They're still doing great. Anxious to get going in life, I quit college and jumped into journalism when I was still a teenager, and was writing for the New York Times syndicate and People magazine before turning 20. But that was a long time, many adventures, lots of traveling around the world and thousands of interviews ago. I go back to the very last days of hot type and getting to talk to Henry Fonda and Bette Davis, and Sammy Davis at the old Brown Derby...What a ride. That's in no small part thanks to my amazing writing partner, Marilyn Beck, one of the grand old-school Hollywood columnist stars -- a true star -- who knows how to do it right. I'm lucky, for sure. Now is fun, too. I love going out to events with my 17-year-old daughter (Jonas Brothers!). Seeing everything fresh through her eyes renews my excitement about the game. In-between I went back and finished school -- University of Redlands -- married, divorced, and at long last found my true love. My favorite things outside of the show business realm are being with my family, my faith and spiritual growth, learning new things (from doing Qigong to uploading stuff on Facebook), and running. See you on the trail.
