"Det var en kometkarriär få hade sett maken till ens på Manhattan. Han gjorde Kate Moss första modeomslag i USA, porträtterade Bill Clinton under Lewinskyaffären och fotograferade åt världens mest prestigefyllda magasin. Sedan bjöd han in vännerna till lägenheten vid Broadway, sade åt dem att ta allt de kunde bära med sig – och försvann till ett buddhistkloster i Burma."
It was a meteoric career few had seen before even in Manhattan. He did Kate Moss first fashion wrap in the US, portrayed Bill Clinton during the Lewinsky affair and photographed the world's most prestigious magazines. Then he invited his friends to the apartment on Broadway, told them to take everything they could carry - and went to a Buddhist monastery in Burma.

"To get the perfect shot, models and photographers need to work together in perfect harmony. Patrik Anderson has worked with all the big names, from Kate Moss to Mick Jagger but he has also worked with models that are new to the scene and still produced a fantastic shot. We wanted all our readers who are at the start of their career to really understand what goes on in a photographer’s head during a shoot. So, we asked Patrik. Take some notes, as you will want to make it into photographer’s good books for potential referrals!"
