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.
