With his brother, Romeo, the face of numerous Burberry campaigns, Brooklyn Beckham has now been spotted working on the other side of the camera for the famous fashion house. The teen, who last year was reportedly working in a West London coffee shop for £2.68 an hour, is the official photographer behind Burberry’s latest fragrance campaign, entitled "This Is Brit."
In a move that is sure to divide opinion, the 16 year old has been entrusted with leading the latest campaign, something he announced last week on Instagram. Having only revealed his passion for photography as recently as last year, Brooklyn posted about his excitement to shoot the ad alongside a black and white photo of himself with a camera.
Shooting with a team in London’s backstreets, the son of David and Victoria Beckham favoured a Guerilla-style approach with minimal equipment.
The shoot was also streamed live across Burberry’s Instagram and Snapchat accounts, including several previews of the final results:
