Who are you :
Aleksandra Kingo. Fashion and advertising photographer and set design enthusiast.
Your current job :
I am a freelancer, but since a couple of months ago I am represented by AWA / Angela Woods Agency, and it has been great so far. Doing shoot for a major TV channel next week, yay.
In which city are you located?
A word to define what kind of worker you are :
What tools are essential to your life (app, software, etc..)
All kinds of social media, really. And a bit of Photoshop.
What does your office space look like?
I work from home when not on set, and I have a lovely table by the window, overlooking Brick Lane. A bit of random props and print laying around, and a bunch of fresh flowers, always.
What kind of music do you listen when you are working ?
When shooting, I try to play something that makes me dance – Yelle, Caribou and David Bowie has been my recent favourites. When at home – Passion Pit, Kings of Convenience or some jazz.
Do you have a way to organize your day to maximize your work ?
When not shooting, I wake up and work early, and then play after. Works most of the time.

Ask friends to help? (Oops)
What is your routine start and end of the day ?
Start: Check Instagram, make my boyfriend some tea, cuddle. Yes, in that order.
End: Go for a walk by the canal and the occasional glass of red.
Aside from your computer and your phone, what gadget can you not you go without?
My camera, of course.
