Bella may get some of her verve from her mum, who modeled in the 70s and managed bands like Dire Straits before settling down in North Yorkshire. Photography and fashion were early passions for Bella and as a teen, she stocked up on fashion magazines during trips to London. Bella chased her art foundation at Wimbledon with a stint at Speos in Paris, partying through the night as a club DJ.
Bella´s images capture the moment. She embraces colour and makes her subjects pop deliciously, capturing the vibe of musicians with ease. She shot vivid moments with La Roux, Kate Nash, Plasticines, Plan B and Paloma Faith, and her images of fashion designer Gareth Pugh, Mischa Barton and Alice Dellal explode with personality and a point of view. Bellaís exhibition "drive-thru" was shot during a month-long roadtrip across America with friends. Itís reality... amplified.
