Would you say that you need any specific training for what you do?
No, I’m a protégé; I’m proof that you don’t need training or a degree to do what I’m doing. I was lucky – I went to university, I have a degree in film, but I sat down in the very first lecture in my first year and thought, “I want fucking nothing to do with film.” While at university, I was doing photography on the side, shooting friends, events and other projects and that’s what I used when I reached out to Jimmy.
When we met up and had our first photography session, it went really well and he inspired a lot of creativity in me. It was great to hear that he liked my work and thought that I had potential as a photographer and creative. It’s great to hear somebody tell you that you can achieve or do anything you set your mind to. You don’t have to be academic, generally – as long as you’re kind and can communicate with people, you’ll be good at the job.
If you could pick a meme to describe what it’s like to work at Lobster Theremin, what would it be and why?
(Below) I just feel this meme resonates within me. If the piercings, tattoos and ‘groovy bby’ persona wasn't enough proof I also work for a record label... watch this space, I’m throwing away my bed frame!
