Who are you, and what do you make?
My name is Agnes Lloyd-Platt, and I’m photographer based in London. I work a lot in fashion and still life. I’m mainly freelance, so I can spend most days with my dog, Radish.
What do you keep on hand at all times?
I take my Ricoh GR everywhere with me; it’s got a really nice wide lens and picks up great colours. It also has an EyeFi SD card in it, so I can transfer directly to my phone while I’m out. My diary also comes everywhere — if it’s not written down, it won’t happen.
What does a typical day in your life look like — take me from start to finish.
I tend to be up earlyish and out to walk Radish in Victoria Park. My day is fairly often controlled by my extreme superstitions regarding magpies — they can make or break it for me, so if I find two it should be a good day.
If I’m not on set (which is normally in London somewhere), I’ll work on pre- or post-production from home. I tend to shoot a couple of times a week, so on the other days I’ll have a few meetings Central or East, then spend a lot of time wondering what to make for dinner. There are lots of amazing Turkish supermarkets in Mile End so I eat a lot of fresh food — and also a lot of cookie dough.
You have a huge following on Instagram — how do you turn that attention into tangible career opportunities?
I think my love of shape and colour works well on small screens, so I get quite a few emails from me with jobs here and there related to work I’ve promoted through Instagram. It’s a nice platform because you can mix work and personal items.
