EVERYONE IS LISTENING. WHAT DO YOU SAY ?

That’s tough. I’ve never been good at public speaking.

WHAT ARE YOUR FAVOURITE LOCAL SPOTS FOR CREATIVITY ?

The techno club a walk from my place where I often go to hangout. Record shops. Really anywhere where i can listen to music and dance.

WHAT ARE YOU MAIN INSPIRATIONS ?

All my friends doing it and the talented people I have met along the way. For visual inspiration I like to scrounge the internet for random videos or film clips, I have whole folders of them. I’m in that weird part of Youtube.

WHAT’S THE MOST EXCITING THING ABOUT YOUR INDUSTRY TODAY ?

I would say the accessibility and growing inclusivity. It’s become much easier to break through as a photographer now, compared to 10 or 20 years ago. Everyone seems to be more open minded to hiring the non-agency represented downtown kid with good ideas and a decent following.
