How do the following inspire your career and life -
Music: Music keeps me motivated! At the moment I’m into The Magician’s Mix tapes.
Art:Art inspires me to be more creative. My style of photography is to document so I really enjoy abstract art because it forces me to think differently.
Technology: Technology is so impressive especially for photography it is amazing what you can achieve on a digital camera and the computer. Personally I’m always trying to find ways to make my photography more like the good old days! So apps like instagram and hipstamaic are really inspiring.
Lifestyle: Having recently moved back to Sydney from an 8 year stint in London the Sydney lifestyle has inspired me in a massive way both creatively and in my day to day life. The lifestyle here is so outdoorsy compared to London.
