Name Nicki O’Donnell
Job Title Fashion / Lifestyle Photographer Company odonnellimages
When did you start your job? It’s all I’ve done since I left school. After studying I started business in 2003. I assisted before and after then until I created my own client base. So what does your job actually involve? Apart from the obvious, my main retainer is with one of the UK’s largest independently owned fashion retailers for whom I shoot Packshot. This involves me coordinating a team of retouchers, spending long hours in a studio and meeting very strict deadlines. Other things such as organisation, liaising with advertising agencies, stylists, hair and make-up and model agencies also are factors.
Best / Worst Aspects? Stressful and long hours, basically no days off. Keeping everything that gets produced to a certain level and maintaining that. The pay-off is worth it though. Seeing what you’ve shot, whether it’s on print or web is very satisfying. It’s also ﬁ nancially rewarding. My girlfriend has expensive taste, so it keeps her happy! Looking back, what advice would you give to a young Nicki at the start of his career? First off, don’t imitate someone. Over time you’ll create your own style. Assisting is also a huge aspect – some photographers have it, some photographers don’t. I did. If you go down this route, be prepared to take abuse and make no money at ﬁ rst - but working with the right people, again, will pay off. Stay focused – not a good idea turning up to a shoot hung over or with no sleep.
and ﬁ nally . . .
Tell us more about what is currently going on with odonnellimages? Other than the steady Packshot work and fashion editorials, I did a story on Visvim in Scotland for The New Order Magazine in Isle of Harris a few months ago - this is about to drop. This leads into an exhibition in Glasgow and Tokyo. I’ve also been commissioned to shoot a documentary about the surfers on the island of Hudhuranfushi in the Maldives which starts at the beginning of May and should be fun.
