1. WHAT GOT YOU STARTED IN PHOTOGRAPHY?
My mum got me a camera for my 15th birthday. I didn’t expect her to get me a camera but she did. So I went out and started taking photos of random things until it started to become a hobby. Ever since then other photographers have inspired me to challenge myself and try new styles of photography, now it’s my career.
2. FEAR OF?
Snakes creep me out.
