KID CIRCUS

Trying to get your vision across is never easy. The truth is, when I started, I was still working out what that vision was. However, the more I shot, the easier it was to get closer to what I wanted to portray in my photography. During times when I feel like I'm getting into a rut, I'll usually take time out of shooting, try and enjoy stuff outside of photography, be it watching films, seeing art, going to music gigs, or even baking (!).

I find the way many of the women I've worked with express themselves on camera to be incredibly engaging. There is a range of expressions and gestures that female models seem to be able to carry off effortlessly. That said, I plan to work with more male models this year. I feel like I approach things on a more case by case basis. I try not to stick to only certain types of models.

For me, the communication is very important. Getting to know the model is key, because when they feel comfortable and relaxed, it can really make a difference to the final images. Ultimately, I want the model to be themselves so their character can come through in the pictures.

I do love a good leather jacket! Seriously though, I try to be open to trying different styles.

One of the most challenging aspects of my work but one that I am truly grateful for is: My tendency to be overly critical of my work - it can be all too easy to compare yourself to others. And yet this keeps me striving to get better at what I do.

Yes [I am optimistic about the future]! Working on some editorial ideas at the moment that I'm very excited about.

The end of civilization will be caused by: That damned red button.
