“I’m the stylist, art director, photographer, editor. I’m everything in one! I’m also a collector, I’m obsessed with textures and materials and I have fabrics that I make into gowns and capes. I’m constantly reinventing the imagery and art direction. Everyone that sits in my chair inspires a new look. It’s mentally and physically exhausting, but the rewards are amazing.” - Marta Lamovsek, Photographer. Marta Lamovsek is a Slovenian photographer and creative director, specialising in portrait, fashion and advertising. She is alumni of London's renowned ‘Central Saint Martin’s College of Art & Design’. Her work has been published in several books and more than fifty international publications, such as ‘VICE’ magazine (UK), ‘Vogue’ (UK), ‘Marie Claire’ (ME) and ‘Elle’ (ME). Lamovsek’s photographic journey began in 1998. Self-taught, she was firstly drawn to street photography and “iconic portraiture” which later on contributed to her success in the world of photo-journalism & blogging. Between 2001 - 2009 Lamovsek became a regular contributor to ‘Cosmopolitan’ magazine whilst working as a photography editor, journalist and producer. In 2006 Lamovsek shot her first fashion photography commission and ventured into the career of a freelance photographer.
