    What photographers have influenced you and how?
    There have been so many talented photographers who have influenced me. To name a few: Avedon / Parkinson / Newton / Webber / Ritts / Annie L / Hanson.

    Did you have a moment when you realized, within yourself, that you were skilled enough to do this for a living and if so when was that or what was it like?
    The first day that I picked up a camera... either that or the army...

    What inspires you to continue shooting and how do you keep motivated when a certain shot or moment just doesn't happen?
    The people and the utter uncertainty of what will happen on the day... thinking with the head and moving with the feet..

    As a photographer (and sometimes art director!), where do you find your own artistic inspiration?
    From the first thought that pops into my head... that and a gut feeling that it can work and not overthinking a shot.

    What is your favourite shoot to date?
    How could I pick one? Why all of them of course...

    What do you look for when casting?
    Personality!

    What would you be if you could not be a photographer?
    A millionaire, cowboy, astronaut.
