Favorite Quote: 'Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly.'
Favorite career moment: I've been so lucky to travel the world and work with so many talented people that it is hard to say, but one of the things I'm most proud of is an editorial I shot for French Vogue with David Sims in 2006, on the day of my grandfather's funeral. I was in Paris doing the shows when I found out he had passed, but he was so supportive and loving and just such an amazing human being, and I knew and know he would have wanted me to embrace every opportunity, and so I shot this spread featuring the clothing of John Galliano, and it came out great, and I always think of my 'Granddaddy' when I see the photographs.

Favourite career moment: Shooting with Mario Testino and Carine Roitfeld for the Fabergé campaign.
Fitness regime: It depends where I am. If I am at home I go to the gym or join some classes. When I’m travelling I have personal trainers or I have been known to attend Barry’s Boot Camp – it's great! I have also just started wakeboarding – it’s very difficult but I won’t give up! During the wintertime I am really into snowboarding and if I don’t feel like any of that I love a Bikram yoga class.
