Article & Interview:

Tory is an innovative fashion and fine art photographer based in London whose ingenious
imagination has allowed her to chase her childhood dream of becoming a freelance photographer.

How you did it?

I’ve been interested in photography from an early age. Moving to London opened up amazing opportunities and I worked as a
photographer’s assistant, which allowed me to gain contacts and build relationships with
clients.

Where you started?

I started shooting test ideas with Make Up Academy to build my portfolio whilst shooting commissions for smaller brands. I was able to work for cool companies by having a varied portfolio, creative ideas and a good website

Early Inspiration / what motivated you?

I’m always looking at different genres of art and photography. Graduating from a great university where the likes of Nick Knight and Wolfgang Tillman studied really inspired me to succeed.

When your most proud?

Doing a job I love that makes me happy! It feels great to hear people talk about my work when I’m doing an exhibition, to make clients happy and to see my work printed in magazines

Rules to live by if you’re a freelance photographer

Be confident and inventive with your work. Always shoot new ideas when you can, and keep your website up to date. The right
imagery is important right now in art and fashion. Keep up with new trends to know what look’s in season. It’s important to stay inspired so I always try and visit exhibiotn and shows when i can

Favourite Summer Outfit

A Flowery cropped t-shirt, bright flowing skirt, bangles, flip flops and sunnies

Favourite Post-work Drink

A fruity cider or mojito

Favourite Beach/City

Definitely Barcelona! I love how you can have both city and beach life

Surf Girl Magazine

Surf Girl Magazine

The perfect shoot location, lots of colour & creativity were key when storyboarding my shoot ideas for Surf Girl Magazine!

With the concept based on ‘Urban Beauty’, my aim was to capture bold hues and bright colours within London’s urban landscape whilst emphasising a strong sense of summer with the styling & sun-kissed skin

Working closely with my MUA (Laura Glover) to bring fresh ideas & shots to life was great! As always, having a great
team and fab model made the shoot, thanks everyone

The final images along with an interview on me & my work will be published in Surf Girl Magazine in May.
Cant wait to show you all the final shots and see my work in print

A little bit bout Daniela’s jewellery:

“Taking inspiration from travels, animals, the symbols and meaning of charms. We want our jewellery to have a sense of fun,be quirky and feminine at the same time and feel personal to you.”

Always great to work with a lovely client, great team and fab model

Velvet Magazine, Dubai

From one editorial shoot to another!

An insight into my recent shoot ‘Temperature Rising’ commissioned by Velvet Magazine, Dubai…

Working closely with my amazing team, the shoot concept started with the MUA’s idea, using the word ‘HOT’ – in
terms of temperature, lighting, colour. Everything warm, gold, glistening. With this is mind, the shoot location and style was important for the direction of the shoot. I wanted my images to be exotic with an African / tribal style – lots of details, beauty, colour and luxury
