The Guest Blog Today is all about Lara Jade
Tell me a bit about yourself?
I’m Lara Jade – a fashion, portrait and advertising photographer currently living in England. I’ve been shooting for six years now (since the age of fourteen!) and I am privileged enough to be able to travel internationally as well as working in my homeland in something I love!
What inspired you to become a photographer?
As a child I was ALWAYS inspired by everything around me – I took this vision into art, painting and drawing first. Then during my end of high school exams at school I discovered photography whilst researching artists. Immediately I fell in love and wanted to try it myself.
You travel all over the world to photograph people, where your favourite place?
At the moment NYC – I have been there three times this year. The last visit was for two months. Everything about it inspires me so much, I feel that my strongest body of editorial work came from there because every day I could go out and feel inspired by everything around me.
What tips would you give to someone who wants to be a photographer?
Practice makes perfect – don’t give up. You need to keep shooting to get a style, to improve, to learn. I am constantly working, for free or paid jobs to keep improving my style and knowledge.
What in your make up bag?
Rimmel, Max Factor, Boots own brand and a beautiful lipstick I bought from make up forever in NYC.
What your skincare routine?
As I’m always working, especially at night – I make sure my make up comes off (with make up wipes) first – sometimes this is the only thing I use if I’m in a rush. But usually I use toner to remove all make-up and follow up with a moisturiser before I go to sleep! I tend to use the SIMPLE range.
What one beauty product couldn t you live without?
My Rimmel black eyeliner
Who do you most admire for their style and beauty and why?
