Paul Joyce is our favourite stylist, there is no doubt. The way he combines colours, the detail, the feeling he creates, it all makes him an artist actually. Read our short interview with him, and expect to hear more from him very soon.
Were you always interested in styling? What did you want to become as a kid?
I’ve always been obsessed with details; dissecting the way people around me would put things together. However, it never really occurred to me as a child that there were “jobs” in fashion… I was always under the illusion that style was a natural trait …for the people I admired, it was 😉
…The only thing I ever wanted as a kid was to be an actor. [insert cliche here] :p
You use such beautiful colours when you work, and the pictures always end up a little bit anarchic with a personal touch of yours. Where do you get inspiration from?
I try to make everything feel personal in one way or another. It’s the most important thing for me to achieve in pictures. I think inspiration is a difficult one to define when you can look at so many different references in the same day, and be moved by all of them. But if I could simplify what moves me the most, it would be Sight and Sound 😉
How is it working with different photographers each time? What do you have to bare in mind?
Naturally every photographer is different, and the working method feels different each time. There are, of course, people I find easier to work with… I suppose the biggest thing for me, is the relationship I can develop with a photographer, and the mutual ground we can create between us.
I’ll end it on this; there are an abundance of people out there calling themselves “photographers”, and there are a select few who really are cameras… I think the difference between them is as clear as day.
