The photographer: ‘I specialise in architectural exterior and interior photography and have been with my camera for about eight years, we met just after my 30th birthday. ’
The gear: ‘I did play the field a bit before finally settling down with an Olympus OM-D camera with Olympus 9-18mm (wide-angle), Olympus 45mm (portrait) and Samyang 7.5mm (fisheye). I also carry a Giottos Ventruvian travel tripod, some Lee Filters and a spare battery. For editing, I favour Adobe Photoshop as it's a really useful tool and a bit more than a bunch of sliders, although I do tend to keep my post work minimal these days.’
The work: ‘As you will notice the majority of my work is architectural; buildings have always fascinated me. There is something about them that makes sense to me and grabs my eye. Patterns and geometric shapes intrigue me. Being able to challenge a building's form and create something visually striking, especially from the mundane, gives me great pleasure.
‘Whilst I typically go out with a plan of what I am going to shoot, many of my more favourable photos have come from just meandering around and seeing what catches my eye. For me, composition is absolutely everything and experimentation is a fundamental part of my process. These days the experimentation is much easier as my camera has a flip out screen – I don't miss crawling around the floor trying to get the right angle to the amusement of those around me.’
