Brooklyn Beckham loved photography straight away
Brooklyn Beckham knew he wanted to be a photographer as soon as he began studying it.
The 17 year old – who is the son of David and Victoria Beckham – has won a string of high-jobs behind the camera, including a Burberry fragrance campaign and an upcoming stint at V festival, and admits the gigs are the fulfillment of a long-held ambition.
He told L’Uomo Vogue magazine: "I studied photography in high school and straight away I knew it was something I was interested in.
"When I left school I started shooting in my spare time and really started enjoying it. I bought a few books and then I ended up interning for David Sims on a couple of shoots."
While his father’s soccer career means Brooklyn and his family – which includes siblings Romeo, 13, Cruz, 11, and Harper, four – have lived in a number of cities around the world, including Madrid and Los Angeles, he calls London is "home", despite the fact girlfriend Chloe Grace Moretz is based in the US.
He said: "It’s really hard for me to think of which city I prefer, it’s 50/50 because my girlfriend is in L.A. and all my friends I met at school, but London is my home, it’s where I grew up."
Meanwhile, the teenager, who at one stage looked set to follow his dad David into the world of professional soccer, credited his parents for instilling good values in him.
He said: "My parents taught me to treat people how you want to be treated, and you know, never give up, have a good work ethic and always be humble.
"When I played football there was a lot of people watching me and my every move, even if I made one mistake, I had to work harder than every single person and prove myself even more."
