BIO: I am seventeen years of age and a fashion, commercial, and portrait photographer based in Sydney, Australia. I started taking pictures when I kind of realized that I needed to start documenting in some way or another. I don’t have the best memory, and there have been many moments when I’ve been too scared to blink because I know I just may let go unintentionally of something that later on, I will miss. Since then, I have developed a larger than life passion for it and it has led me to working with incredible artists from all around the world.
You are such a young talent; how did you get into photography?
I got into photography about two years ago. It was summer time, I had newly received a camera, and I just thought it would be interesting to start experimenting and photographing my life. I took pictures of my friends, and we would play with styling. It started and built from there, and I’ve quickly grown such a love for it since.
How would you describe your style of photography?
I always say I shoot “fashion, faces, life and love” because they are the most special to me. To be honest, I still feel like I’m trying to find my style, and it’s definitely been more defined than when I first started, which was then all about experimenting and seeing what I liked and what I don’t like, what worked and what didn’t. Right now though, all I like want to do is capture spontaneity and realness.
What kind of things inspire you?
Strangers on the streets, energy, and new places tend to inspire me the most. I’m very fascinated with human habits, and I get an incredible amount of ideas just being in a different environment. New York is pretty responsible for a lot of ideas in my head, some still in the progress of transferring to photographs!
Lucia, how did you hear about LuLu*s?
I’ve heard about Lulu*s a while back ago while I was hardly into my teenage years from a magazine that listed their personal favourite online stores.
What made you want to work with LuLu*s specifically?
One of the things I love about the store is that it’s got so much variety and that allows endless concepts to come into mind. Everything from the clothes and the atmosphere of LuLu*s stood out to me.
What kind of vibe did you want to capture with this photo shoot?
I wanted to have the vibe that Lulu*s already has, which is all about youth and having fun. We shot in a house belongs to a friend of a friend one morning and the location, with a wall shelf of books and beautiful furniture, helped significantly to establish the collegiate theme of the photo shoot.
What would be your dream photo shoot?
My dream shoot would be more of documentary style, no makeup, no pressure, just following a few friends running away and having fun during the summer. I’d always love to have a bonfire on the beach or just go on a drive out of town and just photograph every day life and the strangers we meet along the way.
Thanks so much for working with us, Lucia!
