Hands down the most inspiring portrait photos I have encountered on Flickr. Lou Noble has the only photostream that leaves me torn between wanting to scroll for more and wanting to get out the house and take more photos myself!

Lou has an excellent and unique style.

Once in a while Lou looks at my photos, maybe even favorites one. I do the same to him. Been like this for a few years now, and I'm honored he even notices me. He's nice, too!

Dear Lou, Your portraits are extremely captivating. Every single portrait in your stream has a unique mood/feeling to it, and I love that. You know damn well how to use light to your advantage, and always have the greatest models! I highly enjoy your work, and look forward to future uploads! -Lorena

Lou, Your photography is stunning. It glows and glimmers, and I won't even go into the lighting. Every portrait is raw and beautiful, and I could look at your work for hours. You're so good, keep up the amazing work :)

Lou is one of the most magnificent portrait photographers I have seen so far on Flickr. Not only has he the most beautiful models, but he is also able to express his thoughts about all of his photos in a unique way that makes it a lot of fun to come back every day to explore the latest photos he has to share.

shit, this man's photography is pure awesomeness i just peed my pants!!!!

Lou is the modern Michelangelo of Polaroid portraiture. Try and prove that statement wrong. It's not easy. Believe me, I've tried. His works are addictive. Well-taken. Humorous. And human.

Lou is the modern Michelangelo of Polaroid portraiture. Try and prove that statement wrong. It's not easy. Believe me, I've tried. His works are addictive. Well-taken. Humorous. And human. (I had like two more paragraphs of unfiltered praise I had to edit out of this testimonial. To keep things succinct. Because I figure if you're reading this and you're not Lou himself, you're pretty much wasting your time. Go look at his fucking pictures.)

Lou's posts are a part of my morning routine. Coffee + cig + Lou photo. More than just a skilled photographer, he shows us the human side to his subject as opposed to just utilizing them as a prop. Lou inspires me to be a better artist.

lou's photos make wanna smash my face. i'm not sure what that means, but take it positively.

You know that feeling when you hear a great song on the radio, and the style sounds so familiar that you associate it with your favorite band and genre of music? Lou's photos have that same effect.

When you see a beautiful, unique beauty captured on film, with hints of flare and other nifty little charms, one instantly thinks Lou. Hands down, the best portrait photographer this side of flickr.

Wonderful work. Lou never ceases to amaze me.

March 22, 2009

I'd like to know every person he has the luck to photograph.... they are all so beautiful. And I'd like to photograph like him, too.... his photos are all so beautiful. Polaroid shouldn't stop to produce film just to allow Mr. O' Bedlam to continue his awesome work, i tell you.

when he isn't making the rest of us photographers jealous, he's dumping loads of black pepper on his eggs. LOADS. that much i do know.

It's very unusual to me to write a testimonial, but the Lou O'Bedlam shots are so great that made me put some words around here. Lou, for me, your pictures say something, they make me feel good!! Congrats my friend!
