Aero directing team of Markus Klinko & Indrani make their prime time premiere tonight at 10pm as the subject matter of Bravo's latest docu-series, Double Exposure. Their celeb clients include Kate Winslet, Dita Von Teese, Britany Spears, Beyonce, Kanye West and Lady Gaga (to name JUST a very brief few).
Meet Markus Klinko:
Here's one thing I would never guess about Markus: Before he became a top celebrity photographer, he was one of the world's top classical harpists. (Is there anything he can't do??) He has played concerts around the globe and won the “Grand Prix du Disque” for his recording with the Paris Opera Bastille Orchestra in 1994. After teaming up with his partner, Indrani, Isabella Blow gave them their big break: A fashion cover for the London Sunday Times. Taking iconic images has been his MO ever since.
Indrani was born in Calcutta and became a fashion model at 14. She traveled the world for her work and that's how she met Markus. They two teamed up and in the “meantime,” Indrani went to Princeton and earned a BA in Anthropology and then mastered digital and post production in New York and and Paris. Indrani also is co-founder and fundraiser for SEEschool, the non-profit Shakti Empowerment Education which provides free education for over 300 women and children in India.
Fun fact: Markus and Indrani dated for 8 years. Now, they are just business partners. Ergo, the bickering. A lot of bickering. And Bravo was smart enough to say, “Hey, now THAT'S a show!”
Another key player in Double Exposure is their stylist, GK Reid:
He's considered to be one of the most cutting-edge stylists out there who has taken many celebrities images to the next level. He is world-renowned and most importantly, he talks back to Markus.
Check out Bravo's site for all the sneek peek videos, bios and photos from the series Double Exposure! You can also follow Markus on Twitter, as well as Indrani. And do NOT miss their photography portfolio. “Stunning” is a gross understatement.
