Australian born but a true flower child and woman of the world, eighteen year old Nirrimi Hakanson can call Diesel and Billabong past clients and most continents past bed rests. Her life and travel experience could challenge that of someone double or triple her age having begun her world travels and professional photography career as a young teenager.
Choosing fashion photography over any other genre because it allows her the most creative freedom and expression, Nirrimi’s most rewarding moments are overhearing strangers compliment her work or refusing big clients because it would be untrue to herself and her style. When asked where the future will take her she replies with “I’ll never shake this wanderlust. I’ll have a little child or two, take them everywhere with me on wild adventures. We’ll be this artist gypsy family who follows the summer. I will shoot enough campaigns to get by happily. I will own a home near water with acres of untamed backyard. Everything will always be okay”
