Can you describe your life as a photographer? How are you different now compared to the start of your career?
For me, being a photographer has been an enormous amount of fun. I have had the wonderful opportunity of visiting the amazing places I have shot in. I can’t imagine a better way to spend your time and life than exploring this amazing planet. I have always been very competitive and hardworking and I am completely obsessed with my work and love what I do.
I think I am now able to ‘see’ my photos better and have a better sense of lighting now compared to when I first started 30 years ago. If I felt that I was not improving constantly, that would be a sad situation. At this point in my career I am happy to be finally able to pick and choose my assignments and I feel that all the hard work and hardships I had to go through when I first started has paid off.
