My third and last (for now) in a series on one of my style icons, my friend Natayla. She's so petite, and her style reminds me of a kind of 21st century Audrey Hepburn. She's got that elfin pixie quality, and a real zest for life. And more importantly: she really doesn't give a toss about being famous, or promoting anything.
It's been an interesting exercise, going thru my shots of her in the past.. I guess it's about 18 months that I've known her. It's funny: with some friends you just feel you've known them all your life. I'm sure there are lots of shots I've taken that I haven't come across yet- and of course I don't shoot her every time we hang out - but it's interesting, for ME at least! - to see how she's drawn to certain themes. I didn't realise how much she wore leopard print, for example, cause she hasn't worn it lately. And then I found the first shot I took of her, above. You can see she's holding a card: it's mine.
I totally forgot that I met her thru street shooting her! Another perk of the job.
Who are your style icons?
