What drew you to street photography initially?
I kept seeing things and not having a camera. Also I’m a music producer and this industry is harsh so the camera was an escape for me.
You are a real storyteller with your images. How do you do it? How do you see the stories?
I don’t know how to be honest, I’m just constantly scanning what I see for stories. I suppose I’m always telling a ‘story’ from my angle, rather than it just being a reportage based thing. Its just important to see first, then get a camera.
You also have quite a collection of beautiful portraits. What makes for a good portrait in your opinion?
A good portrait is honest. Its that moment the person lets their guard down and you see into their soul, through the eyes. Eyes are so so important for capturing emotion. Trust is a big thing here, for both them and you.
What has street photography taught you?
Street photography has taught me a lot about myself. Each photo totally says something about me, or is a reflection of how I’m feeling.
I try and be as playful as possible but I’m drawn to honesty. I’m drawn to seeing how others cope with happiness and pain and it helps me to cope with my own head.
Do you think street photography will still be relevant 50 years from now?
I totally hope so. There is something so basic and raw about telling stories on the street. Its like a game, you just have to go out and find the pieces.
