I’ve just published a book, Children Say the Funniest Things, which is a collection of my photography and funny anecdotes and quotes. All profits are being donated to the NSPCC and if you’d like to support this, you can buy the book on Amazon.
Inspiration is everywhere. In photography I’m inspired by…
Steve McCurry – Novice Monk
Most famous for ‘Afghan Girl’. My favourite is the Young Rinpoche.
Julia Margaret Cameron (1815-1879)
Developed the ‘dreamy’ soft focus technique.
Margaret Bourke White (1904-1971)
American photographer. First woman to photograph for LIFE magazine. She photographed a lot of war and although distressing, reflects truth. She also took the last photograph of Gandhi before he was assassinated.
Cecil Beaton (1904-1980)
British photographer renowned for photographing Queen Elizabeth at her coronation. He also took the famous photograph of Audrey Hepburn as Holly Go Lightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Marilyn Monroe and the Rolling Stones were other favourites of his.
I love his work and that he had big fashion houses and magazines sign contracts to say that they wouldn’t Photoshop anything he produced for them.
