Greg Gorman in 2007.

Greg Gorman (1949 - ) is an American portrait photographer of Hollywood celebrities. His work has been seen in magazine features and covers. These include Esquire, GQ, Interview, Life, Vogue, Newsweek, Rolling Stone, Time, Vanity Fair, and the London Sunday Times.[1] Although he studied photojournalism in college, his passion for rock and roll led him to his chosen field when he photographed Jimi Hendrix in 1968.[2] John Waters once said "Greg Gorman is the only person I’d let photograph my corpse"[3] He primarily works in black and white.

He has also directed music videos, television advertisements, and graphic design layouts for advertisers.[4]
