I have been taking photographs since the 1990s, when I bought my first camera: a Praktica MTL50. It gave me many hours of joy as I taught myself to balance shutter speeds and apertures, to make long exposures, and, most importantly, how to frame a shot. Since then, I've dabbled in digital photography, but I keep coming back to film, both 35mm and 120mm. There's texture in it, and touch too: something tangible, even if only faintly so. My photographs have been used on travel websites (both UK and internationally), in marketing material, on album covers and in various publications. I had a little feature on them in The Guardian, which was nice, and have recently had my work featured in an exhibition called 'Bogotá sabe a cine' that explores Bogotá's diverse cityscape as a site of generative intersections between cinema and photography.
My job regularly takes me to Latin America, most frequently to Colombia, but when I get time off I like photographing life in busy streets, and encounters with others who have stories to tell. I think I'm getting better at that, slowly.
Do get in touch if you would like to discuss a possible project, or if you have any tips.
