Mike Lerner — official photographer on the Believe world tour, who also took the Bieber’s James Dean shots as part of a wider shoot sharing tips on how to make James Dean inspired photography. Watch below!
Mike also posted a Twitter statement that should shame those who either deliberately misinterpreted Justin’s Instagram, or are so enthralled by his ‘bad boy’ label that everything reported prisms through it. He wrote:
The amount of butthurt is insane. Justin NEVER said he was James Dean. The photo inspired him and we mimicked it. Get over it.
Does media understand the word “inspired”?
I used my favorite @vsco preset, fuji neopan 1600+, to edit the “controversial” photo of @justinbieber
