The American photographer was born in Fairfield in the State of Connecticut. A photo he took from his mother on vacation when he was six years old, awakened his fascination for photography. He studied at the North Carolina School of the Arts and in New York at the Arts Student League and the School of Visual Arts. Andy Warhol offered him his first professional job: Taking Photographs for his 'Interview Magazine'. From 1987 on LaChapelle was in demand as photographer for magazines such as Vanity Fair, Vogue and Rolling Stone. Many celebrities were photographed by him. In 2006 LaChapelle decided to reduce his commercial activity and to focus again more on fine-art works. His works have been shown in many international exhibitions and honored with awards and prizes.
