PRESS RELEASE - Yemi King

Fashion photography has been in existence since the earliest days of photography.  Capturing style lead to fashion becoming an interest the world over with technique, composure and mood changing with the decades. Many fashion photographers evolved from previous work in the fashion industry, the same can be said for Yemi King, who has been in the photography industry for over 10 years.

Her career began at the age of 17 when she spent most of her time in front of the camera modelling in and around New York City. She moved to London in her early 20’s and continued to work in creative environments that inspired her to pick up a camera and step onto the other side of the lens.

After working for a well-known lifestyle portrait studio, quickly advancing from apprentice to senior photographer, Yemi King reached her goal of stepping out on her own and opened her professional photographic studio in Surrey. Soon after launching her studio, a fellow creative colleague came across Yemi King’s work and asked her for assistance with shooting her Body Paint work at a Fashion Show in London. The social media response from this collaboration brought Yemi King full circle back to her fashion roots. From then on in Yemi King was seen at Fashion Week’s around the country capturing breathtaking shots of designers from around the world.

Yemi King has a deep affinity for people and the buzz and distinct energy of a photo shoot that truly shows in her photography. She approaches each project, whether lifestyle or editorial, action or still, as a unique creative opportunity and the stimulating imagery of her finished work has received much acclaim. Yemi King has been published in both international online and in print and she has also taken on roles as Creative Director.

Yemi King is currently based in Edinburgh and works closely with a network of people who are forming a “Fashion Revolution” in this great city. With shoots in her hometown to shooting at the iconic fashion weeks on New York and London there is lots of exciting work coming out of Yemi King Photography.
