What does Photography mean to you:
Photography brings together many of the things that I’m passionate about, it’s wonderful to capture moments/situations that are happening right in front of you or alternatively being able to set up a studio where you are controlling and creating the outcome.
I also really enjoy the post processing part, it is very satisfying to see what you can bring out in an image in terms of adding and blending colours and textures to create a certain atmosphere.

It’s difficult to choose one image as I have so many favourites but one that stands out is an image which was taken about 16 years ago, I had just dropped in to visit my Mother and found her asleep in the armchair cradling my niece who was also fast asleep I luckily had my camera with me and was able to capture the moment, which I called 80 Winks.
Who’s work has influenced you the most:
There are quite a few photographers that I admire but Brooke Shaden’s photography really inspires me, I love how she’s able to create such emotive images, her work lingers with you.
