Steven Klein

Steven Klein is a well known American fashion photographer.  He is known for his collaborations with Brad Pitt, Tom Ford, and Madonna.  He has also worked with other celebrities such as Britney Spears, Edward Norton, Beth Ditto, Christiano Ronaldo, Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johaansen, and many others.  He is a frequent contributer to Vogue and W Magazine.

In Addition to his advertising and editorial work, he has done a lot of work in the field of moving images/stop motion.  He does this by taking many photos of a moving subject.  But rather than rather than just showing them quickly in order like a regular stop motion film, he repeats strange, usually awkward movements several times to create a very repetitive, bizarre effect.

His website has many examples of his photography and several videos showing the unique take on stop motion animation he takes.  This is the type of style I would like to try with for my next digital project.
