Brooklyn Beckham shows off photography skills in Burberry fragrance campaign

Brooklyn Beckham shows off his skills behind the camera shooting images for fashion house Burberry.

LONDON (REUTERS) - Brooklyn Beckham has been showing off his photography skills, getting behind the camera for British fashion house Burberry.

The eldest son of footballer David Beckham and fashion designer Victoria Beckham shot pictures for The Burberry Brit fragrance campaign.

The 17-year-old took the images in London in January this year, with the photoshoot being streamed live on social media.

Brooklyn isn't the first of David and Victoria's offspring to work with Burberry. His younger brother Romeo had a role in the label's 2015 Christmas advert.

The Brit fragrances campaign shot by Brooklyn features an all British cast of newcomers including Ben Rees, Lewis Helim, Todd Dorigo, Eliza Thomas, Liv Mason Pearson, Maddie Demaine, Carvell Conduah and Harry Pourdjis.

The decision to hire the inexperienced teenager has been critisised by some fashion professionals who claim it devalues their skills and training.

The campaign launches across Burberry's digital platforms and in store in July.
