Jamie Hince: Moss is irritatingly stunning

Jamie Hince says it's "really, really easy" to take pictures of Kate Moss.

The Kills singer married the supermodel in 2011 and in his spare time the musician dips his toe into the fashion world by practicing photography.

He's snapped Kate, 40, in the past and sometimes can't believe how amazing she looks from behind the lens.

"Yeah, she’s annoyingly beautiful," he smiled when asked if she is a muse for him.

"Jack White was telling me that when Kate did a video for The White Stripes’ I Just Don’t Know What to Do With Myself, afterward he said, 'Can I have a picture with you?' They took the picture and he saw it and was just like, 'Wow.' He needed 12 shots to get himself looking good, and in every shot she just looked like this icon. It’s really, really easy taking pictures of Kate."

Kate has been in the fashion industry for 25 years and in December 2013 she was presented with a special recognition prize at the British Fashion Awards.

Despite her experience, she doesn't try to give her husband photography tips.

"She’s interested in it, but she doesn’t give me any guidance. The thing about Kate is that she’s a free spirit. She doesn’t care about technique or any way you should be doing things," Jamie explained.

"She’s really aesthetically open-minded. Sometimes a shot will come back that will be completely wrong technically - out of focus, wrong exposure - and it will be the most beautiful shot of the lot."

Jamie, 45, currently has his work displayed for the first time at the Morrison Hotel Gallery.
