When did you start photography?

I don’t actually remember taking my fi rst proper photograph. But my dad has a video of it. He was making a video at a music festival (that I was presenting) and because we had media passes my dad sent me into the press pit to photograph a couple of bands. It was for a jokey bit of the video. But I must have really enjoyed it, because for the next couple of summers I ended up shooting bands whenever dad was making a video at a festival.

What draws you towards the kind of photography that you do?

My real love is street photography because it tells a story, and it’s about people and a moment frozen in time. What really interests me is people interacting with each other. I like capturing the moment, because it’s something special and unique. When I was younger I used to get upset whenever I missed a shot, but now I’ve learned to really enjoy how special each successful shot is.

I like to shoot architecture too, I’m interested in the shapes and patterns. That is what I focus on rather than the whole building. I’ve also just started doing still life recently. I’ve got to be honest, I didn’t think I was any good until someone offered to buy one of my prints. I like trying out any type of photography really, but I would say that I am a street photographer.

Have you had any training?
