I’ve been fortunate to photograph a pantheon of characters. Many are familiar, some on their way up; for the most part pretty regular people doing irregular jobs.

Synchronicity or fate, call it what you will, has conspired to have me in the right place at the right time to take their portrait, and I thank the people I have worked with for letting me in – for putting their trust in me, whatever the explanation – to open up so I can get through to the real person.

I can only describe the experience of a shoot working well as feeling a natural high, when people deliver what you want. I photograph people for who they are, to take an honest image of them; whether that shows vulnerability, or sadness, if they come across as happy, or fulfilled, fun, humorous, whatever the emotion, that’s what they have/could give.

As Ansel Adams said: “If words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. If images becomes inadequate, I shall be content with silence.”
