– When it comes to photography, what grabs your interest? What do you try to capture in your images?
“I’m a technology geek, so love getting all my gear out and experimenting. It might sound weird, but what really gets me going is light – how it totally transforms and image from something pretty standard to something really beautiful. I like to play with it, and use big spaces to shoot, so people can get psyched about a whole environment.
Portraits are my other passion. Faces tell all the stories!
I work really hard to capture the final shot in camera. It means there’s less artificial improvement in edit, and when clients look on the back of the camera, they see what’s going to be sent to the magazine.”
– How would you describe your style of photography? What else do you photograph outside BMX?
“Relaxed. Chilled vibes, nice light is the ideal for me, I like to portray the culture of BMX as well as the action.
I like people to review the photo and notice how different it is to real life.
Outside of BMX I’m involved in a lot of commercial projects; shooting for fashion brands, camera companies and TV, and recently finished working on a horror movie, which was a totally different kettle of fish!
I’m always looking to learn more – about myself and from other people – so I’m up for almost anything that sounds interesting.”
– What’s your current setup, what camera gear could we normally find in your bag?
“Nikon D810. Elinchrom ranger. Elinchrom ranger Quadra x 2. Nikon 105. Nikon 85. Nikon 50. Nikon 28. Nikon 10.5
I also have stacks of little lighting modifiers, gels and stands, but this my main kit. If space is an issue, I can always condense down to a camera and my trusty 85mm. That’s all I take when we go riding.”
– Finally, any shout outs?
“Plenty. All the riders out there who I’ve met over the years, the old BC Crew, Billy Rim Grind, Canon Si, Homer, FBD, Chicken, Jimmy, The Vegan, TFL Carl, The gays, Elinchrom, TFC Birmingham and lastly, my home girl, Laura.”
