Victoria and David Beckham’s 17-year-old son may be a rising star in the modeling industry, but the new campaign Brooklyn Beckham has shot for Burberry puts him behind the camera instead of in front of it, according to the Daily Mail.
In photos released yesterday, fresh new faces grace ads for the company’s three new men’s and three new women’s fragrances, called Burberry Brit. The squad of fledgling British models includes Ben Rees, Eliza Thomas, Liv Mason Pearson, Harry Pourdjis, and other models you’re bound to see gracing high-end campaigns to come.
It’s clear from looking at the artfully arranged images that Beckham has an eye for composition and has inherited the talent and style of his famous parents. In fact, on his Instagram account, Beckham calls photography his “passion.” To coincide with the campaign, 36 limited-edition posters of the budding shutterbug’s shots will be available for purchase at select retailers and Burberry stores.
Though the campaign is causing a stir in the fashion industry, it’s not Beckham’s first stint as a photographer for Burberry. In January, he worked on his first campaign for the company, and the shoot was streamed live on social media. Even Burberry’s creative director, Christopher Bailey, praises the teen’s precociousness. “Brooklyn has a really great eye for image, and Instagram works brilliantly for him as a platform to showcase his work,” he said, according to the Daily Mail.
Beckham has a long relationship with Burberry, having also walked the runway for the British label. The teen’s other modeling credits include posing for a major fashion editorial in Vogue China in May, and starring in his first major fashion campaign — for Polish label Reserved — in March. Beckham’s brother, 13-year-old Romeo, was also featured in the issue, and starred in “From London with Love,” a short film by Burberry.
Along with the ads for its new fragrances, Burberry released behind-the-scenes photos of Beckham on location working behind the camera. The multitalented teen also plays soccer — just like his superstar dad — skateboards, and is a student at a London high school.
