Describe a bit about yourself and your work?
I’m a photographer and filmmaker. I work in fashion a lot, and also pursue my own ongoing projects, the longest-running of which is about naked men.
What are your words of wisdom and why?
“Never Take The Easy Option” was something my late Dad always said to us. I actually think about it a lot - every time I’m making a decision. It reminds me it’s worth taking time, and doing something more difficult, if the end reward will be higher.
Who is your role-model?
I re-read Stanley Kubrick biographies in an attempt to be more of a badass. Nestor Almendros, the cinematographer, is someone else who’s biography I re-read every few years. They remind me to experiment, and stay true to my ideas.
I’m starting to try and work with women, in the way I’ve been shooting men for the last 10 years.
