Getting back on track with my mini-interviews is one of my top goals for 2020. First guest this year: my super talented brother, Gary. Biased, you say? Well, take a look at his work first. But yes, I have to admit, I am a little 😋
Why did you decide to be a fashion photographer?
I don’t think there was ever a decision – it just happened organically. I have always gravitated towards photographing people and fashion has always been a major source of inspiration in all of my projects. So I think I found myself evolving and focusing more on fashion photography without thinking too much about it.
Tell us more about your photography
My photography is always narrating a story.
A: Short and sweet, I must say
Being chosen by Tommy Hilfiger International to shoot the official Tommy Jeans digital campaign. They came all the way from Amsterdam to direct the shoot and it was both nerve-wracking and surreal at the same time.
What is your favourite photograph so far? Why?
This is one of my favourite photographs because everything came together perfectly. Cassandra is an extremely talented local actor who wanted to be portrayed in a different light. Together with Malcolm (styling), Neville (hair) & Hannah (makeup), we did a great job. This was taken for the Sunday Circle.
What would be a dream collaboration for you?
An absolute dream collaboration would be with the genius Alessandro Michele and photograph the Gucci Campaign. I also would literally DIE if I had to work with artists that I listen to on repeat.
Not that I don’t know the answers to these already. BUT, super-quick questions to share with the rest:
Tea or coffee?
Requiem for a dream
Would you rather read minds or the future?
One thing you would like to cross off your bucket list?
Work on an editorial abroad.
What inspires you?
I get my inspiration from personal experiences, music and literature and the smell of freshly brewed coffee.
