I don't always find it that easy to put work out there because I wish I had done a better job. One of the main things I'm trying to work on is confidence so that I have more courage in my vision. I believe it has to come from within, as cheesy as that sounds. Validation from other people feels great but it's hard to sustain that confidence if it's purely based on that. If you have that self confidence even when things aren't going so well it's much easier to power through and just think, "Fuck it, it will all work out..." Easier said then done though!

When I first picked up a camera, I didn't even have in mind to take photos of anyone, more to take photos of motorbikes. A mate of mine who was doing photography was going along to a model day a studio put on and I decided to go as well, I guess it started then.

Doing any kind of fashion or portrait photography for me brings an emotional level to it which I enjoy. I was always into playing music and finding creative outlets so I don't think it was much of a shock to those close to me when I got into photography. I like a natural look to my shoots and I guess that drives the styling. I like simple everyday items which most people will own, rather than a high fashion vibe. I struggle with anything too fussy or when the styling doesn't allow room for the shoot to naturally progress.

I would say I approach [things] more on a shoot by shoot basis. When speaking to a model about a  possible shoot it's a case of finding out if we both share some kind of common ground in terms of how we want it to look. We're at least then working towards the same goal. It's ace when both of you and the model are proper into what you're going to shoot! Working together with someone who often you have only just met is a buzz and exciting to see what the two of you can create.

Who knows where the photography will go, but I know I love shooting and meeting all the amazing people I have so far by doing it!

The end of civilization will be caused by: People in this world who can't accept we are all different and want to impose their views onto everyone else and the desire for power!
