Do you have a favourite photo that youíve taken? That's a tricky one! I think my photos of space are my favourite - probably my crescent moon. I also love the main shot on my website at the moment which is a long exposure street style photo.
What inspires you? To be honest everything around me inspires me. I see in photographs. Everything I look at my brain figures out how best it would fit in a frame. I'm not so much of a fan of set up shots.
How do you find your next photography location? As per above, I really just like wandering around and shooting what I see. However, for astrophotography I tend to try and find places with low light and/or interesting architecture/scenery. Sometimes it requires a bit of research.
What do you find rewarding about photography? Something about it just makes me happy. I love being able to tell a story through an image and for others to see the world through my eyes.
Whatís been the biggest challenge? It's very competitive. Any art takes a lot of dedication and really getting yourself out there in order to get by. Astrophotography is also very niche and hard to get in to if you live in London where we have a lot of light pollution. Really I need to move abroad!
What has been the best piece of advice given to you? Don't overthink it.
