I had a very brief so to freelance period, then in my life where I did the Daily Mirror woman's journal, which I'd be no longer exists anymore and a very brief stint on miss London magazine, which used to be given away at the stations. I was then head hunted onto the Daily Mail, and I actually spent fourteen years there, an twenty six I became their fashion editor, and I stayed for another decade are than decided to take a very different path, and I wanted to be free, Lance. So I I had to contract working on Tatler magazine, which was a huge change enroll the wonderful, very different from the immediacy of newspapers. But I think people think that you have all the time in the world magazines to put them together. Actually, you don't you spend weeks and weeks and weeks trying to get hold of a celebrity to photograph. And you actually work on collecting information about a feature that you'll do. So I did that.
