Natural landscapes, wildlife and weather
Favourite part of your job?Exploring parts of the world I wouldn't normally visit, the people I meet who teach me new and interesting things and the never ending positive emotions I feel when taking photos.
When I threw a blind email out to my favourite company at the time, Norse Projects, containing images I had taken of my friend in their clothing which they returned with a positive email saying they would like to use the images in their visual assets. This was a defining moment in my career. The motivation and excitement I experienced was unparalleled and still encourages me to this day.
Committing to several hours of driving into the Highlands, then hiking several hours into remote areas with heavy equipment, hoping the weather forecast is accurate.
Dropping an expensive lens into a pond after deciding it was worth the effort to take a mediocre photo, or sliding on my bum across a narrow mountain ridge, covered in melting snow when I forgot my crampons.
Combining photography and social work in future (Community Arts) - I have an Honours degree in Social Work.
