Favorite Phoebe & Knox piece to date?

I love the Iona Stripe Dress. It’s dying to be taken to Santorini 😉

We get to see your life through a lens, – how did you get into photography and was this always the plan?

We really stumbled into photography! I was an art director in Advertising, but I yearned for more! I can’t be put in a box 😉

You have been to some pretty rad locations – what has been a stand out highlight so far and why?

We shot a wedding on a tiny island in Greece called Folegandros and that was pretty epic! However my highlights have to be Italy. We had a brief stay in Lake Como and a few days on the Amalfi Coast. Both were dreamy!

If you could jetset to anywhere in the world right now – where would that be and why?

New york!

What can you not travel without?

My hairdryer and GHD 😉

If you had to recommend one location that you have visited as a MUST SEE before you die, where would that be and why?

I have so many places I still need to see! But from what i’ve seen: Definitely Paris and the Amalfi Coast.

How would you describe your fashion style?

It’s changed so much over the years. I’ve always worn something a bit different from my friends and I don’t like the normal styles and what everyone else is wearing.

Currently I’m working on my capsule wardrobe. I would say it’s classic and casual (think jeans and plain white tees) with a dose of trends (Adding hats, scarves and cool accessories).

I love simple, beautiful cuts with interesting accessories.

Quote you live by?

Be here now OR here to be here!

If you could give one piece of advice to any inspired photographer – what would that be?

Practise, practise, practise, and don’t spend too much time looking at other people’s work. Finding your own style and voice is so important.

New Years Resolution?

Practise meditation daily. Keep finding opportunities to learn!

All time favourite song?

Sweet Disposition by the Temper Trap

Who or what inspires you?

People who are authentic and honest.

Travelling, London Shop windows, Music that makes you feel something, and beautiful international magazines.

We absolutely adore food and have noticed that you have some very drool worthy pics up of food on your Instagram – what is your favourite meal and are there any food spots we should try when we are next in your area?

Ooh definitely a Poke bowl at Hokey Pokey, or if you can splurge Chef’s Warehouse.

We’re heading up to London and Scotland in July and August!
