50 Cent shows off photography skills

50 Cent has showed off his photography skills by shooting a spread for a magazine.

The rapper/actor stepped behind the camera to take pictures for Smooth magazine's latest issue as a celebrity guest photographer.

The spread involved 14 models and was shot over the course of four days.

50 Cent has spoken about his new-found love of photography and revealed his 'warrior princess' theme was inspired by Angelina Jolie in 2001 movie Lara Croft: Tomb Raider.

He tells Allhiphop.com, "I'm constantly in front of the camera, so it's a natural progression... There's a little more artistic integrity involved in this project than the usual issues... The warrior princess theme, it's about making women strong... like Angelina Jolie in Tomb Raider."
