First ad photographed by Steve Landis to be published in American VOGUE, Sept. 1980 issue of model Paris.  Paris was a young model from the ELITE agency whom with I had done some testing as a young photographer and also some of my very first fashion jobs.  She was modern and had great energy.  I liked to do lots of movement shots, and some of my photographer influences were Avedon and Elgort.

One of a series of hair ads of Janice Dickinson, published in American Vogue, 1981. One of the original Supermodels of the mid ’70‘s — early ’80’s, Janice Dickinson was simply super.   Janice Dickinson understood the camera and the craft of modelling better than anyone that I ever met, with the possible exception of Linda Evangelista.
