Meet the photographer rebranding girl power, one snap at a time...
is hands down one of the coolest girls on the entire planet with the style match – think street wear with sheen. Growing up in the Bronx, after a stint at the prestigious Parsons School of Design, the New York native took the internet by storm with her intimate portraits of her equally sass AF pals, Bella Hadid, Hailey Baldwin, Justine Skye and Kendall Jenner.
However it’s her personal projects that are not only the most profound - most notably her ‘Untitled Youth’ series traced the tales of girls growing up in the Bronx – but have landed her accolades and campaigns with Jimmy Choo and Gucci. Now turning her lens to . as their creative collaborator, Renell isn’t slowing down her shutter speed anytime soon.
In an age where some prolific male photographers have abused power it’s refreshing to have a 25 year-old spring into the spotlight with her unique filter on girl power. Here the OTM photographer teaches you how to nail that Instagram feed for yourself. Just sit back and let the likes role in…
How can you nail the ultimate holiday bikini shot?
"The perfect bathing suit, location and subject! These photos were taken in Turkey. My best shots are down to the swimwear - take this one of me in my FAE bikini for instance."
How can you ‘free the nipple’ trend without having your images removed?
"By not having a cheesy photo! You gotta make it more about the subject than the nipple - it distracts from the nipple!"
How can you nail the 'out OUT' shot and conceal how much you had to drink?
"Take all your pictures before you start to drink and then put the camera away!"
Give us the ultimate selfie tips?
"It’s really simple: lighting and angles!"
How can you ensure your OOTD shots get top likes?
"The picture has to be cool. It should be a combination of the outfit, the background and the composition."
How can you mix up the holiday snaps so people don’t get bored?
"Don’t include the obvious - pool, beach selfies shots – mix it up – go to different location like places people wouldn’t normally visit. You also don’t always need to be wearing a bikini to show your on your vacation!"
Everyone has a cute dog post, how can you out do the pooch posts?
"Get yourself a Great Dane it outdoes everyone else’s pooch!"
