Where do you live? I currently live in Philadelphia

What do you take pictures of? I don’t really have much criteria for this. I do love taking pictures of cats though.

What kind of camera do you use? I have been using thrift store point-and-shoots for the past 16 years. I am currently using a Canon Sure Shot A1 underwater camera and an Olympus Twin Infinity. And I also use my flip phone camera.

Are you formally trained in photography? No.

What are your influences? My photography influences? I mostly look for photos that are funny. I also really love the photos my friends Jesse Riggins and Kelly McCown are taking right now. Kelly has been making her own pinhole cameras and the photos they produce are just crazy.

Where do you see yourself in five years? Probably back in California, where I’m from. Although Philadelphia is pretty great. Hopefully I will be doing some kind of science education.

What makes you happy? I used to race bicycles and riding was my #1 top source of happiness (outside of friendship, which I feel like is a given here). But then I suffered a bad knee injury and can’t ride anymore. So I have had to find new things to make me happy. Now playing the drums/playing music with other women is probably my favorite activity.

Where do you live? I live in Brighton and London, UK. I’m originally from London but moved down to Brighton to study. I tend to split my time between the two cities.

What do you take pictures of? I still find this hard to answer. I suppose anything that holds a particularly personal resonance, but that’s a very broad description. In the past I’ve worked on long term projects, mostly revolving around the differing experiences of those growing up in a big city (London, in this case). Lately I’ve found myself turned onto other things though, I guess partly as a consequence of growing up and no longer being a teenager. I guess whatever I’m interested in photographing, it’s always grounded in the real world. I have no interest in heavily constructing things, for the most part.

What kind of camera do you use? I use a few..I use a Canon 5DMK2 when shooting digital, a Mamiya 7 and Bronica RF645, a Contax T2 and a Canon eos1.

Are you formally trained in photography? Kind of. I’m doing a BA Photography degree at the University of Brighton but I wouldn’t say it involves too much ‘training’…lots of talking though (which is good too).

What are your influences? I try to be like a big sponge and let things that i experience/look at/listen to/watch amalgamate. But, as we’re talking specifics and rights now, there’s a few people who I’ve been paying a lot of attention to – Wim Wenders recently had a show in London of landscape photographs, which was rad. I just bought his film ‘Paris, Texas’ earlier today which I’m looking forward to watching. I really like Espen Rasmussen’s work, Carrie Levy’s project 51 months, Taryn Simon and Larry Sultan’s. Peter Van Agtmael is awesome too.

Where do you see yourself in five years? I’d like to be able to answer this. Hopefully not living on my friends floors, making a living from doing the work I want to do.
