My mum turned our loft into a darkroom when I was five and I still remember the smell of the chemicals and the magic as faces and objects appeared on the paper. Obsessed ever since with photography and moving images, I've now been a professional photographer and production crew member for 17 years.
In a job where you must connect with your subjects in limited time, people skills are key.
I honed mine running a busy bar in Brighton in my early 20's.
Photography allows me to exercise my creativity while collaborating with and learning from talented people in a range of fields.
I love it.
I've been lucky enough to travel the world and meet some of my heroes, shooting for Red Bull, Converse, The BBC, and Netflix.
