Then

Vicky is on track to becoming one of London’s biggest lifestyle photographers. She was the official photographer on Skepta’s Shutdown video shoot, worked with Stormzy for Adidas and shot the Boiler Room lookbook. She has had coverage on High Snobiety,  The Daily Street, Bazaar, It’s Nice That and FACT to name a few. Her recent interview with FACT magazine confirms that this woman is one to watch.

Now

Since 2016, Vicky has had her first solo grime exhibition, ‘AAA’ at the old Hoxton Gallery.

Dazed named her ‘London’s go-to grime photographer’, a title reflective of her raw talent that also earnt her a cover shoot for Push Magazine as well as features in Clash magazine and British GQ.

She’s shot some of the biggest names in the business including Drake, Skepta, IAMDDB, Kelela, Bishop Nehru, Rejjie Snow, Ibeyi and J Huss, as well as work for Clarks Originals and Red Bull.
