Grime fan Vicky Grout rose to fame taking pictures of Stormzy and Skepta, but now she’s becoming a star in her own right.
Vicky takes us to the rooftops overlooking London Fields – the kind of urban environment she’s used to hanging out in. As a self-taught photographer, Vicky can adapt any setting into a backdrop for her portraits, whether that’s an office or just a patch of blue sky. She shows us that developing an understanding of your subject is just as important as understanding your camera.
Tips for finding the story
- Develop a connection with the person you’re taking photos of.
- Find a location which is interesting, without being too visually polluted.
- With a good light source, increase shutter speed.
