Film photography

Tell us a bit about your collection?

I just like taking photos of things that have their own little nuance about them – the way colours work with light, the scale of things or just everyday quirks.

Why do you create?

Photography for me is a way of recording things in my life and places I’ve been. It is a little journal that you can hang up in your home.

What inspires you?

Likeminded people around me. A circle of creatives.

What frustrates you?

Arrogance. Blank frames.

How do you get over a creative block?

Just ride it out. Don’t try rush it. Go for a walk or something.

Who are 2-3 people whose work is inspiring you at the moment?



Advice for anyone trying to make it in the creative industries?

Just play nice. Be patient.

Where can we find more of your work?
