My main influences are cinematography, magazine photography particularly music magazines as well as many years of dancing various styles, along with a dash of everything I’ve ever seen or experienced. Particularly the scenery whilst cycling out in Peaks or further afield. I also have a soft spot for shooting the sea as well as the people enjoying seaside resorts. Probably because I grew up in one before relocating to Sheffield, so it feels like a connection to home.
Working in film particularly doing Art Department impacts on when I do more staged photography, but I equally like the challenge of little time to light or dress a set before doing portraits.
I also like multiple iterations of a shot and will sometimes combine these variations into a single image. Hard to showcase my word in a handful of images, so best check my website for a wider range of images.
