James Robinson

Fashion Communication graduate, specialising in Photography, Styling and Art Direction.

I bring an individual approach to my work which is influenced by my heritage, sportswear and costume, and my upbringing in Northern Ireland. I characterise my visual outputs through everyday observations, clever use of distinct cultural and personal references as well as an abundance of tongue-in-cheek humour.

In my final major projects, I have been working on two print publications, titled 'Look Busy' and '(What's the?) Craic'. Throughout the year, I have also enjoyed working on brand commissioned work for Lazy Oaf's AW20 collection (Body Parts) as well as collaborating with

Image-maker (and Senior Lecturer), Dean Davies on a new project with individuals from the UWE Communication Fashion programme. I am pleased to share these projects below :)
