Meet the Professionals: Louise Boyne

Posted on January 21 2014

My name is Louise Boyne. I am a 21 year old Portrait & Fashion photographer, from West Sussex. I am in my final year of university, studying at the University of Gloucestershire. I take inspiration from street style and the people I meet on a day-to-day basis to inform the style of my photographs, and I'm currently working on developing my portfolio for graduation.

Where do you get your fashion inspiration from? I love plain clothes; the more I shoot the more I've realised that practical is often better than fashionable, so I try to combine the two. I went to Stockholm recently and love the style over there, I think I just like bold, simple things. What’s the most interesting/unusual shoot you’ve done? I once shot a still life of a dead fish which was challenging. If you could photograph anyone – who would it be? Barack Obama. Aaaaand Benedict Cumberbatch. Who are your fashion icons (past or present) Kate Bosworth and Alexa Chung. What drew you to Beyond Retro? I have always enjoyed standing out from the crowd, and I think it is the way the store encourages you do that. What are your favourite picks? I got an amazing pair of Ralph Lauren hiking-style boots the weekend I was shooting! What is a must have in your own wardrobe? Anything black or with sequins.

Here are a few snazzy snaps taken by the lovely, Lou at our Brighton store: Pssst...for more of this hot stuff then check Louise's website.
