Tyler Shields – photographer, filmmaker, videographer, novelist, ex vert-skater and even occasional reality TV star – is interviewed in issue 142 of Digital Photographer magazine. Surprisingly down-to-Earth considering he spends his days hanging out with Hollywood royalty, he shares his thoughts on his latest project Submerged, how he kick-started his career, how his work can polarise opinion and much more. Here’s Tyler’s top tip for capturing perfect portraits:

“At the end of the day when you take someone’s photo they have to trust you; they have to know you have their best interests at heart. When people trust you they feel comfortable and the comfort is what you try to capture.”
