Q: Why are you a photographer?
A: As a young child I always wanted to be an artist. In particular, I wanted to be an actor but my mother forbade it. She believed actors to be too hedonistic. She did, however, indulge me in a pursuit of visual art at a very early age with studies in painting and sculpture.
Q: So, why did you settle on photography?
A: My father was an avid amateur movie maker. I grew up watching (and starring in) motion pictures in the house. It satisfied my desire to be a performer and I was fascinated with the process. It was a huge influence on my decision to go into photography.
Q: What about being a photographer inspires you?
A: The ability of a photograph to distill and transcend a singular moment in time into a powerful statement for social, economic or political change.
Q: What is your biggest asset as a photographer? Why should I hire you?
A: Experience. There is very little that I haven't done and no project too large or small. Whether it's working in a studio shooting still life, orchestrating a large crew for an advertising campaign or traveling solo across the world to document artisans at work, I have the experience to navigate any project on time and within budget.
