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