How long have you been a photographer?

I’ve always been interested in photography but I only started taking it seriously about two years ago.

Has portraiture always been a major focus of your photography?

When I was younger I enjoyed the editing aspect of it. Making things on photoshop out of pictures I already had. I tried taking pictures of everything landscapes, animals, food but people stood out to me as the most creative.

If someone is interested in portrait photography, what would you recommend they try doing to get into the field?

Id recommend shooting as much as possible, practise with self portraits! You can be as creative as you want and then maybe try out shooting with friends! Then when you’ve got yourself a portfolio together, start contacting modelling agencies and getting your stuff out there!

What kind of equipment do you use now, and what did you start with?

I’m still on pretty basic equipment now! I started with a nikon d3100 and a 18-55kit lens! My first *upgrade* was to a 50mm 1.8 lens (about £100) and i still use it today! I now use a nikon d610 with either my 50 or the 35mm1.4!
