Dream Camera: Earlier this year I beat my GAS (Gear Acquiral Syndrome) problem, and have been focusing more on the subject of the photograph than having the latest gear. So fortunately I don’t dream about cameras anymore, and am still happily in love with my Canon EOS 3 and the results it delivers.

References: I try not to align my style with anyone else’s and would have to say that particular shots inspire me rather than a photographer’s work in general. This inspiration is completely dependant on my mood, but I’m currently enjoying the some of the summery shots by Cait Miers and Ryan Brabazon, as well the simplicity and interesting use of colour palette by Elise Mesner.

Why Film? In this fake, modern-day world of selfies and ridiculously over-edited images, I love the honesty of film. What you see is how it is. Nobody is trying to trick you into thinking any different.

New Projects: I have a few funky fashion shoots up my sleeve with some fresh new local faces. I’m also working on a documentary stills series, the first covering the sweetest posse of 60-something year old men and women who frolic in Cape Town’s freezing waters at sunrise every morning, regardless of the weather conditions.
