London based photographer Sarah Louise Stedeford is adept at blurring the lines between fashion photography and portraiture. Starting her journey into photography at school, she soon found that creating imagery gave her a sense of freedom that she had never experienced before. This sense of freedom certainly translates into her work, giving her fashion portraits a kind of off-the-cuff feel, producing an intimacy which is difficult to capture. Playing with natural light, the personality of the model and the immediacy of the moment in order to create photography that both documents and communicates.
