Inspiration: I have a passion for photography and cinematography, and I am influenced highly by the work I see, be it photographs or film. When I find a subject that interests me, I explore every aspect of it to try and find a new way of looking at it, that provokes thought and response in the audience, that creates interest and respect in the subject. I want to go on to be a cinematographer for film, so I try to make my photographs have that cinematic appeal to them, as if taken from a scene of a film. I like the challenge of trying to tell a story through a single image as opposed to a sequence, or a film, because you have to make sure you get enough information from that one frame that will engage the audience, that will make them look twice, and even change their opinions about the subject, and themselves.
Title: It's a Mini Adventure
Description: After the heavy snow encountered at the beginning of this year, a lot of people stayed in, and certainly didn't commute. I drove down to Rye to meet some friends for a snowball fight, and on my way back home passed this Total garage on the outskirts of Rye. It was too good an opportunity to miss, so I drove home, got my camera, parked my Mini next to the pumps and took a couple of shots. I thought it looked so cinematic, with complete desertion, and the glow of the forecourt lights reflecting on the snow. It reminded me of Hopper and Ruscha.
