I love producing images that capture the culmination of my clients’ hard work and creativity. I view my work as a collaboration with designers, architects and product developers to achieve the vision they often already have in their minds, or to provide a fresh perspective, new angles and a different take.
When photographing interiors and architecture, I adopt a fairly structured approach whereby prospective clients firstly chat with me about the project and their relationship to it and often send me shots they’ve taken to give me a feel for the space. Upon arrival at the location, I gauge where the sun will be at various stages for the duration of the shoot so that we can get the best results from the light and time at our disposal.
Editing is a fundamental part of my process and I edit all of my own work, refining the exposure so that it does the space justice and ensuring that the composition is well balanced. Playing with angles and lines, light and shade; combining my passions of photography and design, is my favourite thing to do!
