How would you describe your work and its inspirations?
"I don't really have a precise or obvious niche, but I do find nearly all my images gravitate towards what I call the 3 C's: cinematic, colourful, conceptual. I've most definitely been inspired by films (since childhood), and this has somehow fused with my more recent love of fine art and conceptual artists (Kirsty Mitchell, Adrian Sommeling, Erik Johansson)."
What do you love about being a photographer?
"I simply adore the notion of expressing myself creatively, and taking the viewer on a journey to a scene or different reality."
What do you look for in a model?
"I do try to see the best/potential in everyone, no matter what their experience or look. I do however gravitate towards those who can easily and seamlessly become part of a scene or look (much like a good actor). I can think of a few models I've worked with who have just been so versatile - in one moment, they're a futuristic android and in the next, a post-apocalyptic warrior!"
