I like to record my responses to new environments through photography. I am usually drawn by strong shapes and contours. I am interested in both portraits and landscape photographs, often returning to the same location to capture a different angle, season, activity or light. Where possible, I like to spend time in the community where I am taking photographs, taking time to get to know the location, the weather and the community members; taking inspiration from this and capturing something of the spirit of each place in my work.
The beaches photographs were taken whilst living on the Isle of Barra. The markets photographs were taken in northern Vietnam, whilst I was working in the region.
