Can you tell us a bit about your practice and how you got started?
I started photography about 11 years ago now, my interest in photography was a natural progression from illustration and painting which had always been my passion as a child. As the internet evolved and online profiles became increasingly part of the zeitgeist I started photographing subjects I met online and started getting paid jobs doing portraits. Now I am more heavily involved in fashion, hair and beauty as well as Afrocentric work.
What is your process like? What conditions do you like to work in?
It really varies depending on the project, my favourite place to be is in the studio where I have full control of all aspects of the atmosphere of the image. A lot of the time I collaborate with other creatives who contribute to the brief, and I will usually work quite intuitively when it comes to adjusting the lighting and composition depending on what the creative team put together. Spontaneity is important to me as I hate a rigid brief: great images are produced when the idea and concept are flexible.
