LaChapelle is most well-known for his highly stylised portraits of celebrities. Here, he answers questions from the media about his approach to the shoot.
The set used for his Sydney shoot at Circular Quay reflected LaChapelle's surrealist style.
Studio lighting was on hand to illuminate the chosen few who lined up for hair and make-up before appearing before the N8's Carl Zeiss lens.
LaChapelle only used the N8 to take the photographs, though we did spy a Canon 5D Mark II in one of the kits lying around on set.
Just another day in the life...
Where to for the resulting shots? Nokia's Facebook page, of course.
