I don't mind. Take me to i-D.co anyway

Alasdair McLellan is one of the leading fashion photographers of his generation. Joining i-D after depicting club culture in Leeds in the late 90s, Alasdair is a regular and valued contributor for the magazine. Born in 1974, Alasdair bought his first camera aged 13 and was inspired to pursue a career in photography when he began taking pictures of friends as a teenager, going on to study photography at Nottingham Trent. After moving to London, his work caught the attention of stylist Simon Foxton, who commissioned his first shoot for i-D. With a distinctly British sensibility that ties in with i-D’'s visual identity, his memorable portraits of [his hero] Morrissey and cover story with Lily Allen bear witness to his wit and style. A close friend of supermodel Lara Stone, Alasdair has photographed the Dutch beauty three times for the cover of i-D, most recently for The Whatever The Weather Issue, 2012. Alasdair’s latest cover winkee is King Krule for the cover of The Collectors Now Issue, Winter 2013. He believes that photography should be personal and loves the possibility of creating any kind of world through its medium.
