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 (, 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
