"Whenever I have a moment to myself, it's time to explore and experiment. This may be my favourite part of my job, constantly playing and creating.
In the back room of my studio they lurk various works in progress. For example, the gold shoot in this set of images started ages ago when I had a completely different idea that required only one 4x8 foot panel of gold leaf. A very calm relaxing activity, to cover a panel in such delicate material. Once one was done, it looked so good I had to make more! After that, it was a case of inviting a favourite stylist/designer (Matthew Burditt) and model (Alex from Family Management) to the studio for a day of sculptural creation. We approached the shoot with wardrobe and posing reminiscent of old masters' paintings and religious iconography, highlighted by a world of gold.
The panels are now in storage waiting along side painted canvases, giant mirrors and a million other small projects waiting to be explored.
Get in touch, let's make something!”

Zoe Adlersberg is a photographer based in New York, who travels often to Los Angeles and Europe.
Her career began in Paris, and Zoe’s aethetic reflects an upscale and European taste level, combined with a connection and authetnticity in portraying her subjects.
Zoe has created a short film entitled 'Unique Beauty' which features different people speaking on what the idea of beauty means to them.
Beyond creating aesthetically beautiful work, Zoe strives to create deeper messaging and meaning.
She recently co-founded, and serves as Editor in Chief, Brownstone Cowboys Magazine - a platform that serves as the intersection of social justice and style.
Zoe’s clients include Tom Ford, Eve Lom, Ralph Lauren, Dior, DKNY and Neen Beauty.
British born and London-based photographer, Zoe Economides, spent most of her twenties in Australia where she was exposed to cinematic coastlines, the barren red earth of the Outback and time-weathered rock formations that make it like no other place on Earth.
While studying for her commercial photography degree there, these wide and open expanses, their subtle colour palette and layered textures, undoubtedly became a key influence on her work.
Her beautifully lit images maintain a clean and considered aesthetic through deliberate simplicity. Locations have become a key aspect of her work and she takes great interest in scouting for them to bring her vision to life, imbuing her shoots with a relaxed atmosphere to match.
Always keen for an adventure, the search for these often remote and vast locations has taken Zoe across the globe, from the white-drenched terrain of Antarctica, through the oxygen-starved highlands of Peru, to the awe-inspiring volcanic formations of Iceland.
Inspired by the beauty of nature and the human form, Zoe’s work seeks to bring them together, blurring the lines between portraiture and landscapes. Her recent photography has received international peer recognition through inclusion in Lürzer’s Archive 200 best Photographers Worldwide and as a finalist in both the prestigious AOP Photography Awards and Spotlight Awards.
