My work uniform is very much tailored to the environment I’m in. I could find myself in a rainforest in Indonesia, at the polo in Singapore or documenting a state banquet. Clothes have to be comfortable enough for me to jump in and out of cars, planes and even the odd helicopter – all with a ton of camera equipment.
The best part of my day is always the moment I press that button on the camera and get the feeling that I’ve captured something fantastic. It doesn’t happen every day, but when it does, it’s a buzz. Things don’t always go to plan: there are times when I miss the picture or I’m not able to make it to an engagement due to a diary clash. It happens and you have to learn to deal with that kind of disappointment.
After a long day I have a bit of an addiction to box sets, which is normally sated while on planes to various destinations. I’ve just finished Succession, which was excellent. At weekends I’ll spend time with my wife and son. It will normally involve a long walk and a pub lunch. The White Hart in Barnes is the perfect spot for a weekend lunch. The Victoria and Plough pubs near Richmond Park are also great places for a quiet pint. You feel like you could be in the depths of the British countryside.
