Host: Nathalie Gordon

British photographer, Nathalie Gordon has an unusual but fantastic hyper realistic style. Her work is primarily beauty and advertising focused and is always packed with high sheen and edge. Graduation with a BA (Hons) in film and photography, Nathalie wanted to direct music videos and TV commercials. After an unusual circumstance where her mother was left with a hair salon Nathalie’s work transitioned into the hair and beauty space. Wanting to escape the dull skies of London Nathalie found herself in in sunny Los Angeles brunching, taking great photos and on occasion cycling up and down the PCH.
