I hope you’ll enjoy the interview;

How did you fall in love with photography?

My passion for photography comes through my love of the outdoors and storytelling. I really want to be able to capture and share the beautiful world around us and inspire others to get outside.

How important is having a unique style as a photographer? How would you describe your style?

I think style comes through practice and shouldn’t be forced. If you do something enough and are a creative person you’ll develop a workflow and way of seeing the world that becomes style. It’s always changing and adapting as you grow, so yes it’s great to be unique and be recognised, but it should be natural. I generally think generally my images feature large landscapes, and I usually try to keep the tones soft, whilst sticking to one main colour through the image.

Where did you grow up? How have your roots influenced your sense of style?

I’m from Leicester, United Kingdom, and live right where the city meets countryside. Growing up I was able to spend a lot of my time outside in nature but also be able to experience the city and a busy urban environment. It’s because of this I’ve learnt to appreciate the outdoors and the natural beauty of the world.

What advice would you give to aspiring photographers out there?

Get out there and shoot as much as possible; even if its in the your local park or woodland. Every photo you take and every time you edit is progression and something you learn from.

Have you ever run out of ideas?

The beauty of shooting outdoors means that the light and weather are always changing and no day is the same. You can return to the same location a thousand times and never get the same conditions. Each time you go out you can never be quite sure what you’re going to except, so I’d definitely see myself as adaptive and reactive rather than going with a set plan or idea.

How do you find places and models for your shootings?

It’s a mixture of things, but it’s important to consider that what might result in a single photo might have taken hours or days of research – scouting through Instagram tags, google images, and pouring over maps until you see something that catches your attention. Anything I see or find that I like the look of I add to a google map that is becoming like my own personal photography travel bible.

What’s the one piece of photo gear you couldn’t live without?

Not sure how much this qualifies, but a good pair of gloves. No particular brand, but just something that doesn’t limit my movement but helps to keep the wind off.

Do you edit your photos? If yes, which programs do you use?

All my photos first get processed in Adobe Lightroom, and then often get passed into photoshop for any further edits / tidying up.
