About Me

(Photo - Vanessa Jackman)

I'm a journalist, author, poet and model from a tiny village in the hills of rural Britain. My debut book 'Notes On Being Teenage' came out with Wayland last year, as did my poetry collection 'Branch and Vein' with the New River Press. 

I started Clothes, Cameras and Coffee in 2009 on a day off ill from school, and it has gradually expanded from 'self style' posts with too many exclamation marks to a platform for essays on subjects from the psychology of colour to feminism and the media. Recurring topics include fashion/style, sustainability, vintage and second hand sources, literature, body image, family stories and photography.

I've been featured in magazines and websites including The Observer, Evening Standard, Sunday Times Style, Teen Tatler, Grazia, TeenVogue, Net-a-Porter, Vogue.co.uk and Guardian.co.uk. 

I won the Vogue Talent Contest when I was 16, and have since worked for publications including Broadly, Refinery 29, The Coven, Teen Tatler, BBC Radio 4, The Guardian and The Debrief, among others. 

I am represented by Diana Beaumont at Marjacq Scripts and by the special bookings department Models 1

I read constantly, adore long conversations, drink a lot of coffee, hate to go out without a notebook and pen and am sometimes to be found jumping in freezing lakes and rivers. Oh, and I'm rather tall too.

Nice blog. I like the surrounding of your pictures. Nature is the perfect frame for such poetic and beautiful clothes. I'm also impressed by the lack of attitude that's like a virus in fashion blogs. You seem at ease and laid back, in your articles and pictures.
Keep going and never change the way you are.

Your blog is very unique, and I like how you have combined literature with clothing (since I have one blog on literature and another on sewing).

I must add, I cannot leave the house without a notepad and paper, I started a notepad collection just for it.
