How long have you been a photographer?
Photography can be a pretty tough gig, what motivates you?
I'm motivated to create images I love for both myself and my clients. Money pays the bills but creativity gets me out of bed!
How did you choose the industry or did it choose you?
I started out as a music photographer (which I still do and love) but I have diversified into events, fashion and travel.
What's your favourite subject to shoot?
Festivals, it combines all the elements I love into one chaotic day!
Any role models or inspiring people you look to?
Chris Burkhard (travel), I follow loads of music photographers but none spring to mind!
Tell me a bit more about your style:
I would describe my style as "natural". Wherever possible I utilise natural light to give the warmest result possible. I also keep editing to a minimum and no retouching so what you get is a true reflection of what my eye saw. I am now trying to combine different elements - shooting models in some of the spectacular locations I have found travelling or a fashion shoot at a festival.
