How long have you been a photographer?

I have been taking photographs since I was 7 years old, though I was only allowed about 2 films a year because the processing cost so much. I loved waiting for the packet of 24 prints arriving on the doormat.

 

First camera?

My Grandad’s old Box Brownie

 

Current camera?

Nikon D300. Nikkor 24-120mm, Nikkor 50mm and Tamron 10-24mm

 

Favourite photographic genre?

Street, documentary and especially environmental portraits

 

What are your influences/favourite photographers?

Early influences was National Geographic photographers and Steve McCurry and Don McCullen. More recently I enjoy my connections on social media. There is so much fantastic visual stimulation available it is hard to pin point a single photographer. My mentor whilst in China, Sharron Lovell (www.sharron-lovell.com), has certainly helped me immensely with her mantra ‘light before subject’ though I really enjoy images with a story too.

 

Is there anybody or anything you would love to photograph?

Miao People in China. Japan. Llama farmers in Peru. New York

 

 

Cheers
