Introducing: Indigo Larmour

Indigo Larmour is twice the winner of Young Photographer of the Year and she’s still only 13. She is Irish though born in Abu Dhabi but has spent most of her childhood – so far – on the road or living in different parts of the world.

It’s easy to dismiss young people for their lack of experience and young photographers are often viewed in the same way. However what they bring is a fresh vision, one not bound up in fear of getting it wrong or adherence to perceived ‘rules’ on how to take a photograph. In ‘Introducing’ we meet some of the very talent young photographers who’ve seen success in TPOTY and are already showing real potential.

Who or what first inspired you to pick up a camera? How old were you at the time?

I’ve grown up with photography happening around me my whole life as my mum is a photographer. I think I got my first camera, one of those rubber bashable Vtech kids cameras, when I was 3, but when I was 8 I borrowed a Fuji mirrorless camera (the X100T) from Mum on a photo walk she was leading and it was small and light, and the electronic viewfinder made everything start to make sense to me. She has always encouraged me to look at how I positioned things in the frame and to look at how the light was falling, but playing with that camera made other concepts like shutter speed and aperture fall into place too.
