"Don't be afraid to try something out of your comfort zone - you just might surprise yourself."
Model Citizen App is the platform where we recognise fashion models, photographers, designers, makeup artists, hair stylists, creative directors, bloggers, stylists, and labels around the world. Every day, we feature an individual on Model Citizen Interviews. People get to know each of them - their hopes, challenges, aspirations and inspirations in life.
How did you get to where you are now in your career?
I was inspired by a conversation with a heavyweight in my industry who told me ten years ago - if you have a vision, then Markham, just follow it and refine your style.
What do you look for in a model?
I started as a cadet photojournalist. After many years off to have a marketing career, I came back to photography when the DSLR was invented.
What person has been your inspiration in life? Who is your hero?
I studied the work of Andy Warhol at school but in the last ten years, it has been David LaChappelle, Andy's apprentice who inspires me. I also adore the fantasy work of Annie Leibovitz.
Do you feel like you've met your goals?
I've found my creative confidence but every day I believe there's something new to try to achieve in bending light to tell a beautiful story.
If you had to do it over again, what would you change?
I would study under a master.
Do you have any tips?
Practice as often as you can. Experience pays. And don't be afraid to try something out of your comfort zone - you just might surprise yourself.
How do you stay inspired?
By following and socialising with my peers. You're all genius.
What photography related things do you recommend?
Paint with light.
What's your favourite camera?
What was your most interesting experience?
My best jobs were always with models who want to collaborate to achieve something iconic and memorable.
