We first met self-taught photographer Stu in our shared office space in Camden way back in 2012 and fell in love with his style of photography straight away.
Skip forward to the end of 2013. We're brainstorming ideas for our lookbook and we need an awesome photographer, one who's not only going to take great photos, but who'll understand the brand, the brand didn't yet exist.
Stu was the perfect fit. He totally understood the look and feel we were after and grabbed the brief in both hands. All the lookbook photography was shot by Stu and we couldn't be happier with the results.

As a photographer, he has won various awards. Namely, the Travel Photographer of the Year Awards 2010 for images gathered in China that year. His images have featured in TimeOut London, Vogue, Homes & Gardens, Essex Life, The Guardian and various frames on his Mum's wall.
As a human geographer, he studied at the University of Wales, Aberystwyth taking a keen interest in people and place. He is currently working on an expansive project focusing upon the successes and failures of post-WWII architecture.
As a flâneur, Stu takes inspiration from the likes of Elliott Erwitt, Martin Parr and other greats who took to the streets armed with nothing but a good pair of shoes, a large dose of intrigue and a camera.[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="500.0"] Streets of London by Stu j Beesley[/caption]
