Can you tell me a little about yourself and what you do?

I am a Sydney based photographer, originally from Cornwall in the UK, where I studied photography & broadcasting at Falmouth School of Arts. Photography has been a passion since I was young. I've always been super visual, I have an aesthetic which drives even how I arrange my boys books. It works the same with my work for clients, I see how to unlock the visual story within, it's heartfelt, it's organic.

Who or what is your main source of inspiration?

My family, my 3 boys (my oldest at nearly 7yrs and twin boys aged 2yrs) they are the heart and soul of me. I'm a Cancer star sign, so no prices for guessing that home is my centre, I'm an extreme nester. Both this deep sense of home and family and wanting to record it for their future memories, this is where my inspiration comes from. Always striving that an image tell the story beneath, the love and the feeling beyond what's in the frame. I love the light here, especially dawn and dusk, I love to let it play in my images.

Can you tell us a little about the dish you made and what you love about it?

As a child my mother took me out of school to travel through Morocco. Eating with our hands from the Tagine pot is one of my most cherished memories. This Kinfolk dish somehow reminded me of that.

My eldest sons favourite colour is orange, so today I created one of his favourites, oven roasted 'orange' veg with duckah infused basmati. Of course my inner editor had to bring the orange flowers too.
