Brad Pitt with a Leica M3

Celebrities are always having their photo taken. Whether it’s during an in-studio photo shoot or while they are simply eating lunch at the local deli, the paparazzi will find them! Sometimes the art form of photography is forgotten in the fast-paced race to expose celebs in their most intimate moments.

However, in this Celebrity Camera Club’s collection of Famous Folks Taking Photos, celebrities are taking matters into their own hands. Every photo in the collection involves celebrities holding or using different cameras, ranging from all types of 35mm, medium format, digital, and Polaroid varieties.

James Dean uses a Rolleiflex, Brad Pitt uses a Leica M3, and Johnny Depp uses a Polaroid in these classic and memorable photographs. Others, including Sean Connery, Michael Jackson, and Michael Cera, all find a moment to look through the viewfinder and experience life through the other side of the lens.
