Vicky Grout

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

  1. Develop a connection with the person you’re taking photos of.
  2. Find a location which is interesting, without being too visually polluted.
  3. With a good light source, increase shutter speed.
