6. Research of personal interest: Vogue Photography

In 1892 Arthur Baldwin Turnure founded Vogue as a weekly publication in the United States.When he died in 1909, Condé Montrose Nast picked up the magazine and slowly began growing its publication. He changed it to a bi-weekly magazine and also started Vogue overseas starting in the 1910s. He first went to Britain in 1916, and started a Vogue there, then to Spain, and then to France in 1920, where it was a huge success. The magazine's number of publications and profit increased dramatically under his management.
Vogue Photography is basically the category of vintage photography that i want to be in.
I would love to take pictures for magazines or commercial advertisements, etc. So it is a very special interest to me. Especially taking pictures of gorgeous models out in the world like they did with Marilyn Monroe.
