I ride to work on my Royal Enfield or I’ll walk to the studio through the common. I find a walk with my headphones a creative way to start the day – it’s often when new shoots and film ideas come to me.
Music wise I am listening to Novo Amor, The Rolling Stones, Bowie and I have a crippling weakness for country music, so some Brad Paisley, Chris Stapleton and Brooks & Dunn too.
I am reading Dirt Music by Tim Winton. A friend recommended his books a few years ago and I’m slowly getting through them. I love travel writing and his ability to describe the Australian landscape has always amazed me and taken me back to my days living in and exploring the country.
I got my job by creating it. I don’t think ‘helicopter photographer’ was a thing before. If it was, it certainly wasn’t on my radar. I wasn't making it as a fashion photographer and this was a time before drones, so the aerial perspective was pretty unique. I managed to carve out a niche but fun career hanging out of helicopters, taking photographs of amazing landscapes and environments.
