Spending a Friday night with Brooklyn Beckham definitely isn’t something I thought I would be telling you about! But that is just what we did a few weeks ago. We were lucky enough to attend the Brooklyn Beckham What I see book signing event in Manchester.
If you don’t already know Brooklyn Beckham, yep the son of David and Victoria, has released his first book. If you follow him on social media you will have seen he always seems to have a camera with him. What I See is a book full of the photographs he has taken.
Selfridges, where the event was held, did an amazing job. We were there for just before our time of 6pm. A huge area was cordoned off, we were given our copies of the book and joined the queue. The queue did move fairly slowly but it gave us plenty of time to have a look through the book.
Before too long though it was our turn to go meet Brooklyn.
Me, Ellie and Ellie’s friend all met with him individually whilst he was signing our books. Brooklyn really is so lovely! He seemed so genuinely happy to be meeting his fans and proud of his book. He is super polite and well mannered. It is impressing that he is able to talk to teenage girls like Ellie and their mums like me too. I had a fab chat with him about photography and his favourite styles.
After seeing us all individually he was happy to have a group photo too.
I have now had a change to look through the book cover to cover. Despite having some bad press I think it is brilliant. Watching Brooklyn’s journey through photography is really nice to see. There aren’t many of us who pick up a professional camera and instantly produce professional photographs. We all learn and grow as we go along. Seeing Brooklyn Beckham learn what he loves to photograph and his style is interesting. And of course a behind the scenes look at the Beckhams, the family photos and holiday snaps away from the posed magazine or press photographs is such a unique view. I really love the book.
All three of us had an amazing night at the Brooklyn Beckham What I See book signing. As well as meeting him all three of us have a brilliant book to keep too.
Ellie is incredibly happy to have made it into his instagram video of the Brooklyn Beckham What I See book signing too!
