My portraits are highly reliant on character, narrative and emotion. My background in theatre and film means that I'm frequently inspired by cinematography and theatrical lighting. I grew up in Australia near a place known as "Hollywood on the Gold Coast". Where it's sunny, beautiful and colourful. People ask me why I live in Scotland where it rains just as much as the sun shines and I consider the underbelly and sadness that places hold regardless of their beauty. I approach making photographs in a similar way - to make photographs that are in a way beautiful and vibrant but where it's not about the obvious. There's more to this world that I have created where everything is colourful and perfect.
