Its really hard to choose just one favourite photographer because I like a mix of different photographers for a variety of reasons.
I’ve always been into fashion photography and if I want fashion inspiration, I look at Emily Soto, Lara Jade and David Bailey.
Emily Soto is not afraid to push herself with lighting and testing different cameras and lenses. Lara Jade is a British photographer whose fashion photography 101 book provided me with a deeper understanding of fashion photography a couple of years ago. David Bailey’s work is an array of classic 1950’s and 1960’s vogue covers that to me are timeless.
Georgia Rose Hardy for me is the only self portrait artist whose work I’m inspired by. I’m not a self portrait artist myself so for me her work is about out of the box creativity which inspire me to think more creatively in my own work.
I think its not difficult to find inspiration from people and other photographers in your own life too and sometimes one photo from a photographer can inspire me. One photo that comes to mind in Audrey Hepburn in Bougainvillea shot by Norman Parkinson in Rome. She is stood in front of a cherry blossom tree and since seeing this image I’ve wanted to find another tree in a similar style to recreate this with my own spin on it.
Lastly, I take inspiration from books especially every book by Henry Carroll as there are so many subjects he covers.
