Why did you become a photographer?
I’ve always ridden bmx and love being involved with it. I got injured about 4 years ago, picked up a mates camera, started shooting and got hooked. I hardly ever get chance to ride my bmx anymore.
Rough estimated number of photos taken in a lifetime?
Tens of thousands??
I get inspiration from looking through magazines, websites not just bmx ones. Other pro photographers like Ricky Adam, Dolecki, Vincent Perraud and Walter Pieringer.
Photography’s ups and downs?
Getting your work published and people liking it is a massive buzz and makes it all worth while. Spending all my cash on equipment sucks, and constantly chasing that perfect photograph is very frustrating!
