His family have been enjoying some fun in the sun on an Italian getaway.
But Brooklyn Beckham was hard at work at his photography internship on Friday, as he was spotted leaving the Rankin studio with a red-haired pal.
The budding photographer, 20, had been enjoying the break with his family in Italy earlier this week, but has returned home to continue his work at the internship.

Brooklyn cut a casual figure as he sported a simple black hoodie and combat trousers to leave the studio with his fellow interns.
The son of David and Victoria Beckham was particularly chatty to a red-haired pal, as they headed out together following another hard day’s work.
He had been enjoying a spot of sunshine with his mum and dad, brothers Romeo, 16, and Cruz, 14, as well as his sister Harper, eight, in Italy.

Brooklyn’s outing at the studio comes amid claims that he’s left his colleagues stunned over his ‘lack of basic skills’ during his internship.
He embarked upon the dream internship last month after the legendary snapper Rankin, 52, was impressed with Brooklyn’s photo of Sir David Attenborough in Africa.
But it appears Brooklyn – who has previously shot campaigns for Burberry and published his own photography book – is said to be struggling with the first days of the intense internship – with colleagues claiming he has to be treated like a complete novice.
A source told The Sun last month: ‘Everyone knew Brooklyn’s work needed fine tuning but no one knew his knowledge of the simplest tasks was so off.
‘Everyone had high hopes for him but it’s not been the most impressive start. He’s lacking in most areas. But he’s trying to make up for it in enthusiasm.’
MailOnline contacted representatives for Brooklyn and Rankin for comment at the time.

The star boasts an impressive portfolio of photography assignments – he recently shot his model girlfriend Hana Cross, 22, for the cover of Wonderland Magazine.
And the star also snapped Rocketman stars Taron Egerton and Jamie Bell for Man About Town magazine earlier in the summer.
In July 2018, Brooklyn quit his New York photography course after just one year, amid claims he was missing his mum Victoria.
The star bowed out of his four-year course, which he started in September 2017 at the world-renowned Parsons School of Design.
Tuition fees at the prestigious school cost more than $23,000 per term, Brooklyn was reportedly homesick and missing his family in the U.K.

He told pals months ago he wanted to leave – according to the Mirror, but decided to stick it out to the end of term.
Brooklyn deferred the course for an internship with a respected British photographer, whose name was initially a secret – but was later revealed to be Rankin.
The teenager released a book of photos, What I See in 2017, which was slammed by critics.
One said the book had ‘terrible photos and worse captions.’

Best-seller: The teenager released a book of photos, What I See in 2017 (above), which was slammed by critics but made it to the Sunday Times bestseller list
The book made the Sunday Times bestseller list, while being named eighth bestselling UK photography book this year.
Fans however were uncharitable in their response to What I See, with many criticising 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.’
