Annie Leibovitz – Disney Dream Portraits

Celebrities have been getting the Disney treatment when they come face to face with iconic photographer Annie Leibovitz. She has shot many celebrities dressed up as Disney characters from the legendary Disney movies. The series aptly titled “Disney Dream Portraits” gives the stars the dream opportunity to dress up as Disney stars for the photographer. The portraits themselves have a dreamlike quality as all of the portraits have been superimposed onto dramatic backgrounds. Also, when looking at the behind the scenes photographs from the shoot, you truly realize the time and skill that has gone into these images.

“Russell Brand has a new role, but you won’t be seeing it on the big screen. Annie Leibovitz used him as a muse for the new Disney Parks ad campaign. Brand stars as Peter Pan’s arch nemesis, Captain Hook.”

“Jack Black, Will Ferrell and Jason Segel play Phineas, Ezra and Gus, the “Hitchhiking Ghosts” from the Disney theme parks’ Haunted Mansion.”

“Queen Latiifah is the sea witch Ursula from “The Little Mermaid.” “I was excited about doing this project. Villians get to have all the fun,” Latifah said in a statement.”

Overall, I think that these photographs are truly magnificent, with the all star cast and utterly talented Ann Leibovitz. When thinking about how to incorporate her work into my photography I think that the main thing to think about when I’m shooting is that anything is possible when you have the ambition in you. I can dream!
