Brooklyn Beckham Lands His First Fashion Photography Job For Burberry And The Pics Are Edgy AF
But not everyone's happy that he got the job...
Clearly curating his Instagram so carefully that it'd give even Harry Styles a run for his money has caught the eye of the fashion elite, and the designer Brit label decided it was time to hire him to make his fashion photography debut on their latest Burberry Brit fragrance campaign.
Taking place over the weekend, both Brooklyn and Burberry have been sharing behind the scenes snaps all over Instagram and Snapchat and from the looks of things, it's set to be one of the label's edgiest collaborations yet.
With a pile of up and coming models on the roster of talent for the campaign, Brooklyn took to the streets with his trusty camera and skateboard to capture a whole load of moody pics of the guys and gals out and about in London.
Among the models on the shoot were Ben Rees, Live Mason Pearson and Carvell Canduah, all of who have been tipped for big things from in 2016.
Not everyone's happy that Brooklyn got the job though, and photographer Chris Floyd spoke to The Guardian, explaining that in his opinion, giving him the job is a "devaluation of photography".
Concerned that this is more of a shrewd business decision than an artistic one, he said: “David and Victoria Beckham represent sheer willpower and graft. Especially her, she’s climbed that mountain all by herself. They represent hard work and then their 16-year-old year son comes along and it’s sheer nepotism. He hasn’t done it from hard work, which is counter-intuitive to what his parents represent.
“Part of me takes my hat off to Burberry and says that’s clever, but the photographer side of me says for god’s sake,” he continues. “Brooklyn Beckham’s got however many million Instagram followers, that’s what’s attracted Burberry. The people his age are Burberry’s target market or the future target market.”
All that aside, we can't help thinking that doubters might be somewhat silenced by the results Brooklyn got on the shoot.
We're just going to own up now and say that we already want poster-sized prints of the pics to stick up all over our walls.
The shoot itself wasn't all work and no play either and naturally Brooklyn also took a little bit of time out to get some skating in and was caught on camera working a trusty man bun.
Goals all round or what? Let us know what you make of Brooklyn's pics with a tweet to us over @MTVStyleIntl way.
