Name: Julia Underwood
When did you start taking photos?
I studied photography at college for two years, but that was all about film and dark room (which I miss a lot!). After that I stopped taking photos for a while and then just over a year ago I started taking my digital photos.
Who’s your biggest inspiration?
Ellen Von Unwerth. Everything she does is just so amazing and her style is so unique.
Describe a typical day for yourself.
Well, if I am working from home I will just sit in front of my computer, retouching, emailing and brainstorming shoot ideas. If I’m shooting then you will probably see me running around London like a mad person!
Who would you most like to take photos of?
Vikki Blows, the British Victoria Secrets Model, Rosie Huntingdon-Whitely and Katie Price – I think she’s hot!
Do you have any tips for any girls or boys that are longing to get in front of the camera, but can’t quite find the courage?
Get your friends to take some pictures of you or, you can even do it yourself. Show them to people, get feedback, build up your confidence, and then find a photographer who has a good reputation to build up a portfolio for. Mainly, have fun and don’t take it too seriously!
What’s your favourite photo that you have taken so far?
I’ve taken a lot of my best friend Coco Minnie, so probably one of those! I love playing around with clothes and character.
Have you ever modelled yourself?
Yes, I did a tiny bit and then realised I much prefer being on the other side of the lens. I was RUBBISH at it!
What’s the biggest success that you have had with your photos so far?
I’m proud to say that I have been published a lot already. I think I have been very lucky.
What tips would you give to new photographers?
Keep on shooting and learning new tricks.
What fashion statement do you love?
Huge rings, lots of necklaces and loads of gold! I’m loving suspenders with long socks at the moment.
What fashion style do you tend to adopt?
The ‘I didn’t know what to wear today’ style…
What’s your favourite website?
My boyfriend has an online magazine called Barrymag.com. It’s a good read and has amazing photos on it – it’s updated all the time so I never get bored of reading it.
Where has your work been published?
Nuts, M!, Zoo and Front Magazine.
How did you feel the first time you saw your work in a magazine?
Relieved that it looked good and so excited!
Describe yourself in three words.
Small, creative and independent.
