22 Striking Portrait Photos of Celebrities Taken by Harry Langdon Jr. in the 1980s

It’s much easier to make a list of celebrities whom Harry Langdon, the Hollywood celebrity photographer, hasn’t photographed than it is to make a list of those whom he has photographed in the past 50 years. For decades, in Hollywood, having a Harry Langdon headshot has been synonymous with success. It was not just because he was the most expensive photographer in Hollywood; it was because being able to afford him did not guarantee access to him.

“Photographing a person is a very intimate experience,” Langdon told The Huffington Post. “I believe that there is an energy in a photo session, and if it’s a positive energy, amazing things can happen. If you can look at a person lovingly and honestly and gain their trust, the circumstances are irrelevant. The best picture for me is one in which the person lets you see a bit of his or her spirit. It gives the picture a different edge.”
