Take a deep dive into award-winning British fashion photographer Nick Knight’s Instagram feed and you’ll see some of the coolest shoots (both photo and video) that he’s done with Kate Moss and other models, friends and inspirations for magazines like W, V Magazine, and for his fashion website, SHOWstudio.com.
Black Pearl . This picture of mine is featured in the next @phillipsauction of contemporary photography in London on the 19th of May . #Ultimatevogue . Exciting ! A photo posted by Nick Knight (@nick_knight) on
This film is called Hauter Space . It stared one of the most beautiful models I have ever worked with , the wonderful @alexiawight . I took stills from the film for the story in W magazine . It was amongst other things a tribute to the art of Aubrey Beardsley and Lillian Bassman , both of whom I love . Fashion film is in my opinion a non narrative medium as it owes its form to the language of fashion photography and fashion illustration and not to film . I am looking for the best fashion film makers in the world : enter the SHOWstudio Fashion Film award and help define this emerging medium . Details of how to enter and the prizes on SHOWstudio.com .

I had always wondered why in all self defence videos people were always shown dressed in jogging trousers, a t-shirt and trainers but as in life women wear totally different clothes it would fail to help. I wanted to do a series of self defence videos for women dressed in high fashion ; how to break a choke hold whilst wearing Prada for example . Krav Maga is in my opinion the best self defence and I asked two great instructors ; Jonathan Bullock and Magda Nikitczuk to teach the incredible @lara_stone and myself . ‘Get Back, Stay Back’ was the result. 10 short how to videos. The very first thing they teach you is , if attacked , never behave as a victim or you will become one . Fight back . Revisit the films and learn how to break a choke hold while wearing @ysl, circle slap in @maisonvalentino and bear hug in @chanelofficial!
