The British photographer Pamela Hanson is well known for her fashion and lifestyle photography, having been published in the likes of Marie Claire, Vogue, Vanity Fair, Allure, and Elle. She has also worked for many leading brands in advertisement shoots (Tommy Hilfiger, L'Oreal, Lancome, Emporio Armani, and Vicoria's Secret, to name a few).

The above shot of Mexican actress Salma Hayek is a good example of her style.
