The next Mario Testino!

Aaron - the next Mario Testino?

Starlight recently received a lovely thank you from Aaron, who had his wish for a Nikon D700 digital SLR camera and lens kit granted in December 2009. Aaron also included some examples of the work he has done with his new camera — it looks like the next Mario Testino has arrived!

Aaron has been undergoing treatment for osteosarcoma, a type of bone cancer. He is taking A Levels and studying photography, which is his passion, so when Starlight asked him what his wish was there was no contest: an upgrade to a professional camera. He opted for the Nikon after some careful research and planning to make sure it really was the one for him.

Aaron, who is applying to The London College of Fashion, is hoping to become a wedding or fashion photographer, and his new camera will be invaluable to help him put his portfolio together.
