What’s your favourite subject to shoot? I get ‘excitement butterflies’ when I see something outlandishly colourful in front of me. I love it when people push the boundaries with make-up and hair looks, so if the look is out of ‘the norm’ I get super excited.
What is your approach to shooting hair details backstage? I tend to ask myself questions constantly… not in a self doubting way, but so I can push myself to try to take the best photo I can. I’ll ask myself, ‘what is the most special part of this hairstyle?’ and then keeping that as my focus.
I’ll ask more questions – ‘how can the background colour and shapes frame the hair the best? From what perspective can I look at the hair, that the viewer watching this show online or in the audience wouldn’t have the opportunity view it from? Am I honouring the texture or silhouette of this hair?’
