Fashion photographer for the day


Burberry have asked me to take over their Instagram account on Monday 19th September (tomorrow) in the build up to and during the Burberry Prorsum Womenswear SS12 show from Hyde Park, London.

It’s going to be a bit of a departure from my day job of Graphic/ Web Designer and Illustrator but I can’t wait! Those of you who know me will know I’m pretty much an Instagram addict, so an assignment like this is perfect for me.

I’ll be photographing behind the scenes and capturing the atmosphere of the build up to the main event as well as the show itself. If you’re interested in seeing my pictures from the event, then follow @burberry & @mikekus on Instagram.

    That’s pretty awesome! Look forward to seeing your shots in the stream. How did it all come about? ie How are you connected to Burberry?

    Did they see your instagram feed? Via design connections and then the instagram feed?

    Just curious how they came to ask you for this kind of work. It flows with a few of my beliefs that we’re all photographers.

    Cheers :)
