"I don't think so" = I've got no substantive response.

You ignored my substantive response. I believe the angle precludes it from being him. You disagree. What's more to say?

I see ZERO resemblance between the shot of the girl in the car and the original Brad Pitt and Joaquin Phoenix shots. I see ZERO resemblance in the other shot of the same girl posted in the article either:

Minus the poor image quality, SOOC look, and no quality or directionality of light?

It's a "look" that's very popular in commercial fashion photography, in no small part because of the efforts of this particular photographer. "SOOC" is the photographer's intent.

Popularity is irrelevant to quality. McDonald's burgers.

I certainly don't *know* that they are, I simply suspect. Even if they aren't, these are mediocre images captured by a photographer that doesn't care about photography.

LOL. They are images captured by one of the world's best known fashion and fine art photographers.

A name does not talent make.

No, but talent does make a name.

Don't confuse Teller's trademark casual look with carelessness. .

Oh, I wasn't. I was simply paraphrasing the shooter's own words about himself. Quoted from the very article you linked to: "I'm not interested in photography, I'm interested in how I can express my ideas and feelings."

He's successfully cultivated that look for many years now to considerable success.

Which is, again, irrelevant to quality.

What he does isn't your cup of tea. and that's fine. If you are a working photographer, and your clients like what you do, that is what matters. Do you compete in the same arena Teller does?
