Celebrity Photographer Tyler Shields Exposes ‘The Dirty Side of Glamour’
thedailybeast (..) He began by contacting friends—among them actors Ashley Greene, Shiloh Fernandez, Juno Temple, and Kellan Lutz—who, at the time, were all just beginning their careers. Everyone jumped on board. They all wanted to do something unforgettable—even if that meant momentarily fearing for their lives.
“...people were just like, ‘That will never happen. You’re never going to be able to get celebrities... out of their comfort zone.’ ”
Unlike Roberts's fall from a bridge, Greene had less hesitation about being tied up on train tracks. Shields went as far as hiring a real conductor to steer a train directly at the actress to get his memorable shot. Her only direction from Shields was simple: “You’ve got to untie yourself and get out of the way before the train gets here,” he told her. The train gains speed. Greene doesn’t get herself untied. Luckily, a nearby friend pulled her off the track just in time. Shields grabbed her shoes. “She’ll never let me live that down,” he joked. “The train went by, and she’s there, still tied up, in his arms and says, ‘Really Tyler? The fucking shoes?!’
*(Coinciding with the release of The Dirty Side of Glamour, Shields has two upcoming shows—at the Guy Hepner Gallery in Los Angeles and at the Samuel Lynne Gallery in Dallas.)*
