How does a kid from East London become one of the most recognised and celebrated photographers in the country? How do you go from going to a show to following the artist (Stormzy, in this case) on tour? How do you build a personal relationship with some of the biggest brands in the world?
Photographer Mohammad Abdul, better known as Mabdulle
, is doing all this at just 25. He's worked with fashion brands, musicians and car companies and his style has become one of the most recognised and celebrated today. Oh, and he's started his own photography community, Take More Photos
. As if he didn't have enough on!
This episode was recorded live in front of an audience at Soho House, Soho Works on November 26th 2019.
Starling's World is a podcast about making it in the creative industries. Every two weeks, rising star Starling
interviews a creative industry professional at the top of their game, from songwriters to film makers, producers, managers and agents, right up to major label execs.
Creativity is a bitch: it creeps up on you in the bath, it’s not there when you plan for it and the path to success is as clear as trying to find your tent in a festival site. With no torch. Pop singer Starling has created a podcast interviewing top industry creatives including Bjork producer Damian Taylor, Former Head of Specialist Factual at C4 David Glover (he created Gogglebox), and many more.
The aim? To help people aspiring to make it in the creative industries by learning from the experts: What makes them tick, how they got to the top of one of the world's toughest industries, their mistakes, triumphs, and the moments that made them who they are.
