What gives you inspiration?

Fresh air, new ideas and good people.

What are your influences?

Billy and the bollix.

Why did you choose these photos?

The pictures I choose for this span from over the last 10 years and I think they each express exactly how I was thinking at the time I shot them. I can see how each project has somehow fed into the next but I’m sure most people will just see 4 random photographs and that’s totally cool with me too.

What does photography mean to you?

Photography for me is like a sponge that absorbs all the excess energy from my mind. Every now and then I squeeze that sponge dry and sometimes the results are interesting and sometimes confusing. More often than not though, it’s an ever evolving creative process that keeps me on my toes and hungry for more.
