I was born in York, North England, in 1990 but I am currently in my final year of my degree at the University of Huddersfield studying Music Technology.

When did you start to think about photography?
I became interested in Photography three years ago, before leaving for university, to capture friends in their best moments as a reminder of what was waiting for me back in York. Pictures of my friends fill my walls in my bedroom. Over the three years, carrying a camera became natural.

What does photography mean to you? and which kind of photography do you like best?
Photos are the best way to capture a moment perfectly, but the idea of using analogue cameras appeals to me more than digital. There’s something much more magical about waiting for your pictures and the photo counter. With Film, the results are uncertain and mistakes are often inevitable. But mistakes can offer surprises and add something amazing to a photographic memory.

When you take a portrait, what is important for you?
There is nothing particular that I think about when I take photo except the subject and their surroundings. Then I begin to get excited about the results.

Do you think it’s important to follow a school to learn how to shoot?
I learnt to take photos myself or with the help of friends. Most of my cameras were bought for less than £6 at carboot sales, (with varying amounts of success) but I like that I can buy a camera and experiment so cheaply. I just like to have fun and have pictures to remind me of that. I don’t like I need to be clever with photos because I like the results I get.

What’s the photo you want to take and you never did?
There are so many time when I’d wished that I had a camera or had ran out of film. But there are so many I couldn’t even specify one!

What’s your photo-mission?
I don’t really have a mission for my photography. I do it as a hobby and because I want to capture the fun that I have with other people or just pictures of people who are important. I just like have fun and being able to show people!
