What does a day in the life of Eloise Jenkins look like?I normally wake up around ⅞ and take my two pups for a walk!! I try my best to always have a healthy breakfast and then head to my home office working on any urgent emails and then focus on either shooting lifestyle imagery or branding / packaging at my studio Apricate Studio. Everyday is truly different for me, sometimes I’m stuck on back to back calls all day or other times I’m on location shooting a new campaign.
You are a woman of many talents, graphic designer, considered branding, photographer and videographer What inspires your creativity?I haven’t had as much time for it lately but I really love op shopping and the joy of finding something second hand!! Whether it be furniture or a beautiful book with great typography I find when I’m outside adventuring is the best way to find inspiration.
What do you love most about running your own business “Apricate Studio”?I love the flexibility it allows me, I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes last year and being self employed gives me a lot of flexibility to listen to my body.
What part of your job do you love most?I also love the beautiful clients that I connect with and the feeling of accomplishment when really nailing a shoot! Capturing a beautiful moment that represents a brand is such a beautiful memento to have.
Best advice you have ever been given?If you won't remember it in five years don’t worry about it now, not sweating the small things.
