“I studied photography in high school and straight away I knew it was something I was interested in,” the British teen tells L’Uomo Vogue in it’s July/August issue, of which he stars on the cover. “When I left school I started shooting in my spare time and really enjoyed it.”

After interning for the British fashion photographer David Sims, during which he assisted on shoots, the 17-year-old brushed up on his camera skills by reading books on the subject and showing off his street-style snaps (all of which are shot in black and white and often on his Leica 35mm camera) via his Instagram account, which has an impressive 7.3 million followers.

And it’s not the first time he’s appeared on the cover of Vogue. Beckham made his debut in Miss Vogue last September. But despite his impressive résumé, the aspiring-artist maintains he’s not about to become a serious fashionista anytime soon. “I really respect fashion but I don’t follow trends — I’m much more into skateboarder style clothes,” reveals the famous teen.
