Hey Charlotte, who’s your favourite photographer? What images have had a lasting impact on you?
David LaChapelle is forever my fave photographer!!!! He is the biggest genius and one of the only visual artists who makes me physically PUMPED & excited when I look at his work. I love how you can look at something he has made 500 times and still find something new about it every time. I also LOVE Hajime Sorayama, he is probably my fave 20th century artist, like he is a perfect combination of technical skill and sexy creativity!!!
As a visual artist is there anything that you’re particularly obsessed with?
I love people who aren’t very self aware and very sincere!!!!! I love oily skin and when you take a pic and the person is half blinking!
If you could do a shoot with anyone, from any specific era who would you choose and why?
EASYYYY Ultimate = Michael Jackson probably Dangerous era?? But Madonna also dreeeaammmmm <3 I’m so obsessed with celebrities I have the longest dream list but I think these are my top 2!
What’s been the most impactful lesson that you’ve learned in your career so far?
Have patience!!! Also listening and good communication is v important! Also very recently – put your name on your equipment if you lose stuff a lot and you usually actually get it back!
Who’s your favourite person you follow on Instagram? What was the last photo you liked?
What advice would you give to other young photographers ?
I think I wish that people had told me that there is no right or wrong when you’re making something!
