From working with major musicians to having his work featured in publications such as The Independent, BBC News, Dazed & British GQ, Sterling is breaking into the industry like a storm.
If you haven't heard of Sterling Chandler, you soon will. He's a 17-year-old London based portrait photographer and director working with the hottest up and coming artists.
“I started off experimenting taking photos with an old iPhone I was given, and my mum and dad encouraged me to pursue it after seeing some things I'd done, and it just grew from there. Then a few years ago, a well known photographer who is a family friend saw some of my pictures and was very encouraging, and since then I continued exploring it, investing time and energy. I saved up and bought my first camera a few years ago.” said Sterling
Sterling Chandler'sphotography has been recently included in the GQ Men of The Year Awards virtual ceremony, as well as published in the January/February 2021 issue of British GQ. His incredible images are alongside renowned photographers and GQ Jan/Feb 2021 cover stars.
Aged only 16 at the time of the shoot, Sterling is the youngest photographer to have his work featured in GQ Awards stars.
As well as this, Sterling has a love for digital marketing, again working with a range of artists and global brands and has been recognised for his artistic vision that brings a nuance to the projects he gets involved with. During the first lockdown, Sterling was part of the team who founded a music initiative called Love Record Stores.

Back in November 2020, Sterling was Director's Assistant and behind-the-scenes photographer for a short film for Dazed and Gucci titled ‘Knotted Gold'.
In an interview with KentOnlineSterling said “This year has been hard as so much of it has been in isolation, so it was great to be able to play a small part in a team again and experience the energy you get working with others. Being a behind the scenes photographer on the shoot for Dazed and Gucci involved getting complete access to document everything which was just fantastic. I was peering in and capturing shots you'd normally miss. Being asked to be the Assistant Director gave me a new experience and the opportunity to see everything from another perspective, which was just incredible. “
