photographer rebecca duke

Rebecca Duke must have editors salivating. She's a UK-based photographer who used to work as a stylist. Talk about leaving your photo shoots in safe hands! It's no wonder she's carved out a successful career in both fields. And now she's off to Crete for Conde Nast Traveller. I want her job!

What five words best describe you? Creative, persistent, motivated, aesthetic and epicurean.
What's your proudest achievement? Having three children combined with a successful career as a stylist and then re-inventing myself as a interiors photographer.
Who inspires you? My friend Sophia Neophitou-Apostolou, founder and editor of
10 Magazine... I don't know how she does it all!
What are you passionate about? Taking pictures, food, travel and shoes, shoes, shoes.
What's the best lesson you've learnt? Make every day count and never take "no" for an answer.
If you could meet one person, living or dead, who would it be? I would like the opportunity to introduce my late father to my children... sadly, they never got to meet.
What's next? Developing my travel portfolio. Off to Crete tomorrow, with a fab commission, for Conde Nast Traveller.
What are you reading?
The Professor of Desire by Philip Roth.
