Best job: Hmmm it’s so hard to choose one favourite! I will say two. Number one is when I flew to china to shoot for Hercules magazine. It was a great shoot and I got to see the great wall. Second was recently when I flew to Tokyo for a Louis Vuitton show. I had a great time with my mates, Louis Vuitton looked after us and Tokyo is cool cool cool.
Do your mates pay you out: Of course! But we all know they are just jealous ;)
