Alan Smith – Photographer

A fashion stylist’s work is shown of best when working with a great photographer (as often as possible). I am gifted to have a right hand for lots the work in studio, who is also my mentor on many levels – both business and photography. Thankfully, since I couldn’t possibly know everything about photography even after years of working on catalogues, magazines and for television / commercials, I can relax knowing with Alan Smith the image is going to turn out  – almost always better than expected.
All the images for Threaditorial “Street Style” are shots I have taken and it’s Alan Smith who has given me the courage behind the lens by providing best practices and all the latest industry tips.
We are also the team creating Vic42 – a documentation of the most amazingly talented and interesting people of our city.
Soon, for 2014, we plan to produce a series strictly on fashion, as periodical of pure expression for our individual passions – styling and photography. Stay tuned!
