“We have a wonderful team here at Nasty Gal, we are very much a family full of amazing creative people who live and breathe what we do.”
Why did you apply to work for us?
I heard Nasty Gal had moved from LA to Manchester back in 2017. I had been following
Nasty Gal for years so I jumped at the chance to apply. I have been here for just over four years now.
What’s the best thing about working for us?
Nasty Gal is the most creative and unique brand out of the Group. I get to shoot editorial
models from around the world and I often shoot creative elevated e-commerce shoots and
How would you describe the culture?
We have a wonderful team here at Nasty Gal, we are very much a family full of amazing
creative people who live and breathe what we do.
What do you get up to in your role? What makes it different compared with other similar roles you’ve had?
I shoot four to five days a week, leading the creative direction for all of my photographers. When I am off set, I am often problem solving, supporting my team and always finding ways to grow and improve our studio.
How has your career developed since you’ve worked here?
I have worked up from Model Photographer to Senior Photographer to Lead Photographer
over the four years I have been here. My role has grown massively, and I’ve loved every minute of it. I have a lot to thank Nasty Gal for in my career, I have learned a huge amount in every aspect of being a photographer.
What’s been your biggest achievement/proudest moment so far?
My first campaign for Nasty Gal was the Denim campaign back in 2019. After assisting some amazing photographers I was able to lead my own shoot. I got to work with our LA team on this and bring some of my own personal photography style into it with 35mm film.
What makes someone successful here?
I think if you genuinely love photography and what you do, you will go far in any creative job you have. I have a lot of natural passion and drive for photography which I find keeps me excited within my job and love what I do. If you always have a positive attitude this will
always flow through your job progression.
What do you think makes us unique as an employer?
Growing up as a creative, it is widely known all the “cool” jobs are all in London. Nasty Gal
being based in Manchester gives a huge amount of opportunity to creatives up North which I really love and support.
