His career began when he started directing music videos, quickly making a name for himself amongst the famous faces he worked with.

By displaying one of the photos from his "Bad Barbie" series, the major art museum has given the photographer even more legitimacy in the face of those who doubt his talent.
According to ArtInfo, Simon Baker, the museum's curator of photography and international art, made the choice to honor Shields last February after he saw the opening of Shields' exhibition at the Intimate Modern Gallery.

It's important for me to explore the things that I see and create inspiration from the world around me. I don't look to other artists, just the world. How did you first get into photography? Was there ever an awkward period of trying to find your niche? I think as anything you do you get better at it over time. But it was quick for me - the first photo I ever took I sold. I really believe some people are just meant to do things.
The last thing I expected was to be a photographer but everything in my life at the time was forcing it upon me. We've read that you never studied photography and never had any specific photographer you looked up to until you were already established in the field; do you think that helped you to hone in on what you really wanted to do without having unwarranted influences swaying you into directions you wouldn't have naturally gone in?
People always tell me I break the rules but I didn't know there were rules to break. To me it was anything I can dream of I can do it, but yes I think it was good for me because I wasn't trying to be anything but me and that is what people responded to most. You seem heavily concerned with the corrupting nature of affluence and its ultimately destroying us as a species.
You've more recently begun destroying symbols of wealth as a response, like the Louboutin's and more recently the Birkin bag; how did this theme arise in your work?
I've always loved destroying things. I suppose I am the opposite of a horder, I like to get rid of things once they have served their purpose. I do however have the utmost respect for those items, which is why I chose them to destroy Have you noticed a backlash claiming a hypocritical nature of your attack on society's obsession with status symbols when you yourself are in the center of Hollywood working with some of the world's most famous celebrities?
Doesn't matter who I work with, it only matters the work I do. People have been telling me NO since I started doing this and maybe that will stop one day, maybe it won't. It really doesn't affect me either way if someone hates it and they want to kill me because I set a bag on fire, that's on them not me. I have to push myself and if a few people get mad along the way that's just occupational hazard.
You use a lot of props in your photos.
