q: Does your fine art training influence your photography and vice versa?
a: My photography has progressed to a hole different level since I started my foundation in Art and Design. I learnt how to think critically in terms of concept. How to execute a project professionally and the different processes in which you can carry out a project. I was taught an extensive archive of artists and photographers that have influenced my work. The way i think about photography has completely changed.
I can’t say I learnt anything in my first year of my fine Art Degree. It mainly covered artists/subjects I had already learnt in my foundation. I have just started my second year of fine art. Subjects such as philosophy, art practice and working in the community are some of the subjects, which will all contribute to my photography and future projects. The good thing with fine Art is that you have more freedom to experiment with other mediums. You have to remember you get out what you put in. You are left to your own devises pretty much so you have to stay motivated.
q: If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?
a: I’ve just come back from a 3 month road trip around America, so i feel pretty lucky ive just accomplished 1 of my dreams. Next on the list would be Japan for 3 weeks, then Russia, then back to America.
q: Do you hate snakes?
a: I dont hate snakes. I don’t like snakes either. I did get chased through long grass by a red belly black snake. That will teach me to follow a snake into the long grass bare foot.
q: Any new music to recommend?
a: My friends band called TOY, they have just released a single called Left Myself Behind.
