Q&A WITH CANDICE LAKE

Category: LR Loves

This season we interviewed the style-savvy model, photographer and blogger (with brains to boot) often referred to as the "triple threat" - Candice Lake. It's no surprise the leggy shutterbug chose our LR Shooter Bag to accompany her for this year's fashion week. 

 

 

What's your go-to camera? 

Canon 5D mark iii. 

 

What do you like best about the LR Shooter Bag

It looks like a cool, old school camera bag - super cool. 

 

This falls style inspiration?

White oversized coat mixed with leather pants and a black men's style boot. I'm into more romantic fabrics with masculine undertones. 

 

What typically catches your eye? 

A girl who really knows who she is - I love shooting a girl with confidence. Oh and of course, I love a girl in a hat or wild outfit. 

 

What are your favorite places to shoot in NYC and London? 

I love shooting around SOHO and Nolita on the off season. During the shows, I like the sweeping scapes of the westside highway. I LOVE the light in NY. London is a little grimier and so I prefer shooting around south London where you get a real sense of the city. Anywhere where there's a market you always find interesting girls.

 

The best and worst parts of fashion week? 

The best aspect of fashion week is that it's a really fabulous affair with so much energy and talent thrown into one month by everyone - it's a gorgeous sensory overload and truly a pleasure to be a part of. The downside is the late nights and heavy deadlines. I finish the month incredibly inspired and completely exhausted. 

 

What are your favorite reads, online or off? 

I love the classics and read a lot of DH Lawrence, a little Tolstoy, and at the moment I love American novelist, Jennifer Egan. Online, well I don't know if it is reading, although I do look at Instragram A LOT!!! #obsessed!
