Celebrities with Their Leica Cameras

“If celebrities are going to be seen with a camera, for better or for worse, Leica does lend a certain cachet,” said Michael Holve, a professional photographer on Long Island who runs a Leica enthusiasts’ blog called La Vida Leica! “It seems a Canon or Nikon is somehow bourgeois, or even pedestrian, by comparison.”

  1. Seal looks dangerous, Miley C. is chimping and I will be pedestrian forever.

  2. The picture from Audrey Tautou is taken from a commercial (for a perfume if I remember well), don't know if she owns a Leica herself...

  3. I´d love to see Eric Clapton´s shots - with the lenscap still on the lens. :-)

  4. HMQ...:

  5. ...also, who gets the special job of loading the film for these nitwits as well as dropping it off to get developed (if these baubles even contain film...)

    1. Or 'Why is there no screen on the back of this???'
