Q&A

-How did you first become interested in photography?

At collage, during a GNVQ in Art and Design (I am not very good at drawing).

-How would you describe your style of photography?

Colour plays an important part in my work as well as spacing and graphical shapes.

-Is there a theme or concept that runs throughout all of your work?

Photographing objects that move very fast.

-What is your typical camera setup on a shoot?

Phase one p45+ with my trusty 120 mm macro lens.

-How do you promote your work?

Social Media and contacting companies directly.

-What is your post-production workflow like?

Sometimes I outsource to retouchers, sometimes I do everything myself. Depending on the job and budget.

-A lot of your photographs are of still objects but they also incorporate a sense of movement. What is the thinking behind this way of photographing?

I love the idea of capturing a moment in time so fast it can not be seen by the human eye and can never be reproduced; the only proof of its existence is the photograph itself.

-What is your top lighting tip?

Use diffusers instead of soft boxes.

-What is your dream project?

Shooting something creative and abstract for a world-wide advertising campaign. Shooting it somewhere hot would be nice as well.

-What was the best career advice you were ever given?

Nothing comes to mind. I mainly worked everything out by myself through trial and error.

Also, I get great advise from fellow photographers/friends every day. Befriend other photographers. That can be a great source of information, advise and not just competition.
