Zoe Hitchen - {Un}titled


Name: Zoe Hitchen
Job Title: Fashion Filmmaker / Photographer / Creative Director / Contributing Editor... I like creating pictures!
Company: Zoe Hitchen {Un}titled 
Hometown: Manchester 

Current Location: London

DAY JOB:

My day job seems to change on a daily basis, sometimes that's working 24 hours a day. I don't like routine or sleep that much, so I guess it works well for me? Haha.

I trained as a Graphic Designer & Art Director at MMU. I moved to London and got dropped in the deep-end working as First Assistant to Fashion Photographer Nick Knight. I also worked alongside him at SHOWstudio.com and started creating and editing Fashion Films.

Now I'm working freelance as {Un}titled - I'm Researching/ Directing/ Filming/ Photographing/ Editing. I have recently joined the DazedDigital.com team as one of their filmmakers. I also act as Contributing Editor to photography and filmmaking magazine Hungry Eye

The best thing about my 'day job', is that I'm so privileged to collaborate with amazing creatives, and sometimes travel for work. We just got back from a Fashion Film Festival in La Jolla, California where we screened our Fashion film for designer/ hairdresser Charlie le Mindu.
