How would you describe what you do?
I’m first and foremost a documentary photographer, however, I naturally shoot a lot of commercial work to make a living and in turn supplement my personal projects. At a time when mental health is deteriorating, in part due to the evident falsities of social media, I think my work can be alluringly honest for a lot of clients.
What does a typical working day look like and where does it happen?
If I’m not shooting, I’ll wake up around 8am, respond to any unanswered emails, network a bit, and edit for any upcoming deadlines. If I’m up to speed with everything then I’ll spend the remaining time on personal projects.
How collaborative is your role?
That depends. Commercial work is a collaborative process, but I’m very much a one-man band when it comes to personal work. Of course, portraiture is in itself a collaborative act between the photographer and sitter, however, everything leading up to it – the planning and so on – is usually done entirely by myself.
