What interested you about becoming a photographer?
– Growing up with my Mother's Vogue magazines from a very young age. I had a ravenous appetite for tearing out and sticking to the wall inspiring photos and glamorous models from Vogue and The Face magazine. Wanted to pursue this industry when young but got sidetracked and only had access much later.

Where do you find inspiration to make your photographs?
– Sometimes from one look from a designers runway. Sometimes from a look I see on the street. Sometimes I absorb and then project the personality of the stylist I am collaborating with. Often lying in bed I dream up my characters and the story they are in. Inspired by history and pop culture.

What do you most like to photograph?
– Womenswear because I like to tell a story with the characters and the beautiful clothes. Beauty because I find it relaxing, and ultimately I appreciate all things beautiful, and not just the obvious.

Who are your favorite photographers?
– Avedon Jean Paul Goude Ansel Adams
