Did you always see yourself being a street style photographer?

I wouldn't say I knew I wanted to be a street style photographer, but from 16 I knew I wanted to train as a photographer.



How did you get to where you are?

I studied and achieved a BA (hons) in photography. I worked as a studio assistant, then assisted photographers for seven years before making the break out on my own.


If you could steal clothes from any celeb street styler, who would it be?

Tough to choose but probably Yasmin Sewell or Pernille Teisbaek.


What was the last thing you took a photo of on your phone?

My fiancé Daniel.


Country style or city style?

Country style, I'm from the countryside originally so it's always my default style, a bit more relaxed.


If you could visit any city in the world, where would it be and why?

Havana! I have wanted to travel to Cuba for years, it appeals to me as a photographer for all the obvious reasons - colour, texture, fabulous people.


What would you say to your younger self now?

It takes a long time to make it in photography are you sure this is what you want???
