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? 

London, UK


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. 


What tips would you give to improve productivity ? 

Do not overthink anything at the early stage. 


You're better than your colleagues to :

 Don't have any colleagues, so I guess I can't answer!


What is the best advice anyone has given you ? 

Take your time to play and find out what you genuinely love. Then go all the way with it.


What is your best tip for saving 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.
