About me

 

This past year I have found myself, inexplicably, walking the red carpets of film premieres for features such as Legend and The Martian. Whilst gleefully striding the read walkway I had previously admired from afar - or rather skipping if my memory serves correctly - I managed to refrain from inappropriately running and screaming at some of my all-time film heroes. With indescribable excitement coursing through me I thought to myself, among other things, "Gosh, you're a lot smaller in real life" and "My shoes are better than yours, but damn I'd kill for your suit..." Admittedly, this is definitely the more glamorous side of the motion picture industry, and I classed these jobs as some of my biggest and most unforeseen achievements to date. As a photographer with a burning desire to work in film, randomly finding myself on the red carpet was undeniably the most thrilling thing to happen in my career thus far.
