Well where do I start?
I guess it began with a fear of being in front of a camera, I always found it more comfortable to be behind the camera intead of in front of it. I soon realised I started to enjoy pointing and shooting and the challenge of trying to get the right angle and settings to take a photo that mirrored the way I saw things with my eyes.
A few years of self teaching and practising I thought I should probably go to University to study this thing I enjoy, as thats what we're supposed to do right? It didn't take too long for me to come to the conclusion that I don't need a degree, like everyone else, to do what I want to do with a camera. So I left higher education to continue my photographic journey alone.
Diving deep into the underground music scene in London, I found photographic playgrounds to hone my skills. Places such as Cable, Plan B and The Dome became a home away from home for meeting new friends to call family and discovering all kinds of opportunities.
Skip a few years on and now all of those places I called home have been shut down. So I now find comfort where ever my camera takes me. It has become a tool for capturing the things I enjoy the most and goes hand in hand with all my passions, be it the back of a van whilst documenting skate competitions in the Netherlands, or halfway up a Himalayan mountain shooting music videos in India. Im not grounded to a particular place anymore, I want to help people anyway my camera and I can.
