Gregory Heisler: 50 Portraits: Stories and Techniques from a Photographer's Photographer is rated 5 out of 5 by 2.
In this first-ever showcase of his work, Gregory Heisler, one of professional photography's most respected practitioners, shares 50 iconic portraits of celebrities, athletes, and world leaders, along with fascinating, thoughtful, often humorous stories about how the images were made. From his famously controversial portrait of President George H.W. Bush (which led to the revocation of Heisler’s White House clearance) to his evocative post-9/11 Time magazine cover of Rudolph Giuliani, to stunning portraits of Julia Roberts, Denzel Washington, Hillary Clinton, Michael Phelps, Muhammad Ali, and many more, Heisler reveals the creative and technical processes that led to each frame. For Heisler’s fans and all lovers of photography, Gregory Heisler: 50 Portraits offers not only a gorgeous collection of both black-and-white and color portraits, but an engrossing look at the rarely seen art of a master photographer at work. With a foreword by New York City mayor Michael R. Bloomberg.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Images I had never heard of Gregory Heisler until recently and bought this book online sight unseen based on good reviews. A wonderful book. He is in his own league with his use of esoteric 8 by 10 film cameras and continuous light. Not many have his choice of equipment, rental studios, prop departments and methods. So for me this was an eye-opening glimpse into another world of celebrity photography. It's not a how-to book but a description of how each of these wonderful images were created. Not all the pictures are to my taste of course, but I would warn you that you may be ruined for other photography books that seem quite plain and pedestrian by comparison, but it is a ruination well worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inspiring images I don't consider myself a portrait photographer, however after reading Gregory's thought process and motivation makes me want to try. I have heard him interviewed a few times and learning he will be speaking soon in Toronto was the impetuous for my purchase. Not just another coffee table book. Beautiful art!
