You started off photographing friends and then doing your own album covers. When did you realise that you wanted to take your passion for photography further?
I started to get calls from magazines; I had no idea it would end up this way, but it has and I love it.
Did you receive any form of photographic training?
I learnt how to do things the hard way, trial and error. In fact, I still work a little like that. Experimentation is what leads to something happening creatively.
Please tell us what is in your photographic gear bag?
I carry a case full of lenses and bodies, batteries, hard drives, and cables for my Phase One digital back.
What is your favourite lens and why?
I love Zeiss lenses, but sadly they don’t make them for Mamiya. I’ve even asked if they would make a mount for me. As far as Mamiya lenses are concerned, they are amazing too – the 110mm is my primary lens and there are also the 140mm or 150mm for portraits.
What would you say is your most memorable shoot to date, and why?
There are so many – I suppose working on my book “Wounded – The Legacy of War” was the most memorable. I photographed around 30 severely wounded veterans from the British Armed Forces that had returned from Iraq and Afghanistan for my book and exhibition at Somerset House, London. It was a humbling experience.
