He's currently studying photography in New York.

And Brooklyn Beckham, 19, could be seen putting his skills into practice on Friday evening, as he snapped pictured at Wireless Festival in London.

The teen could also be seen tucking into a Nando's at the event in Finsbury Park, and opted for a casual look in a white shirt and black jeans.



The aspiring photographer looked in good spirits as he was spotted intently taking snaps at the festival.

Brooklyn released coffee table book in 2017 entitled What I See, but it was slammed as a pointless ‘vanity project' by online critics.

Neilsen book data reported the 304 page tome has sold just 3,890 copies in the four after its release.

However, it fared better in Amazon category General Art Books for Young Adults, where it reached the top spot despite achieving little more than a third of sales boasted by the UK’s leading photography books.

The book also made the Sunday Times bestseller list, while being named eighth bestselling UK photography book this year.

It is understood to have made £46,573.74 in sales during the four months since its release.

Despite its mixed commercial success, fans had been uncharitable in their response to What I See, with many criticizing the book for its apparent lack of artistic merit.

'Whilst not as comfortable as the usual 3-ply Kittensoft I normally use, I have found the pages of "What I See" to be a more than adequate alternative should an emergency arise,' wrote one.

Another raged: 'Utter drivel by an overprileged (sic) kid using the parents' name.

'Doesn't even deserve one star. Most of us have better pictures on our camera phones.'

Penguin - the publishers - are said to be happy with sales, with the book selling out at many retailers (particularly in the US where there is almost no stock left) and are currently waiting for a reprint to replenish stocks.

Brooklyn, brother to Romeo, 15, Cruz, 13 and Harper, six, has been enjoying some time with his family back home in London lately.
