When I Grow Up I Want To Be Victoria’s Secret Photographer. Like Russell James!

  • Pin it

While you may be tempted to go around this, being just another one of those Victoria’s Secret related topics, I suggest you don’t. It’s really not your typical models – wearing lingerie thing; this time it’s different!

It’s about their photographer. Russell James has been with Victoria’s Secret as their photographer since 1997. That should say something about the brand and, most of all, about Russell himself. And the video below is his short story, as told by Russell himself while he was actually shooting Victoria’s Secret Holidays campaign, for a segment of Dream Jobs. I was watching the video and all I could do is think about Steve Jobs‘s words – “You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. You have to trust in something.

I have no idea what drove Russell James throughout his adventurous life, what I do know is that he seems to have found his path and he’s staying true to it. And that, my lovelies, is way beyond any VS story you’ve heard before. Isn’t it?
